Family run farm situated 560m above sea level on Mount Peglia. We produce about a ha of vegetable garden, hay, oil, a little wine for home consumption, soft fruit. Jobs include harvesting and storage of onions, garlic, potatoes, tomatoes and beans, making tomato sauce and jam, haymaking, harvesting olives for oil and grapes for wine. But in the countryside there are always many chores to do, especially in a wilderness like this! We are just 9 km from Orvieto (5 km is along a dirt road) but as we have 3 children there is always someone who goes into town. We have no TV but we have internet, a good sense of humour is essential!.

This hermitage is a very isolated farmhouse, particularily suitable for people who need to temporarily get away from the stress of the city and recharge their batteries in the peace of nature and the countryside doing simple jobs. It is nestled in the green heart of Umbria, near to a nature reserve and 15 km from the nearest village. The house has been carefully renovated using green building methods, is equipped with photovoltaic panels, heated by wood and has it’s own water from the well. The main jobs are in our organic garden and cleaning the access paths. The food is vegetarian, we mainly use our products and those of local producers. We do not have television, there is a landline but not good mobile phone reception, internet is only available in the reception area. There is a small chapel on the property. Meals are shared together in the refectory. The "luxury" that reigns in our hermitage is linked to ecology, healthy technology and spirituality. The WWOOFers are housed in a single room with bathroom . We speak English, French and Spanish.
