I have this farm of about 7 ha of which 3 are cultivated and the rest is forest, olives are our main crop and we have a vegetable garden, an orchard and a vineyard. The production is strictly (non-certified) organic and we sell our produce directly from the farm. The farm is situated on top of a hill about 6 km from the nearest village where the train station is located. We have a car and trips out depend on the farm activities.

We, husband and wife A. and I. (1978) and Teo (2016), run our organic farm in the foothills of Monti Martani a few kms from Spoleto. Every day we care for our animals: cows, goats, sheep, hens and chickens. We produce mainly extra virgin olive oil and walnuts, a small amount of honey and jams made from our fruit. There is some woodland from which we extract our firewood. There is always plenty to do and every day is different from the previous one. We have plenty of space in our house, we have a dog which lives with us and some cats outside. We speak good Italian, Serbian and English and a little French and Spanish. We do not have WiFi but internet is available at certain times of the day. Food as far as possible is home grown. We can offer single or shared rooms and shared bathroom.
