Liguria

Our farm is located 17 km from the highway and the centre of Chiavari and Lavagna and there is no bus service. We are a small farm with agritourism and we have lived here for 25 years. We have restored and we continue to improve the land and the house where they we now live. We have 6 cows, 10 horses, goats, sheep and chickens. We are surrounded by several hectares of woodland, chestnuts, a vegetable garden and olive grove, several fruit trees. In the winter we dedicate our time to the animals and forest management as well to pruning and preparation of land, in the spring we are dedicated to the production of vegetables and the vegetable garden. We are organic farm. The farm works three days a week as a social farm and at the weekend we accommodate tourists and have a restaurant. In spring we often have students for the day who dedicate their time to studying nature. In the summer, we are dedicated to hosting ‘green weeks’ over about two months for children (8 to 15 years) who love nature. We can accommodate WWOOFers in the rooms up until 30 April and from 15 September onwards when they are not occupied by guests. We have lunch and dinner together and you can help with agricultural activities alongside one of us, in moments of intense work on a farm we ask you kindly to help with tidying the dining room. We speak school level English and only one of speaks French and German. We have two dogs and four cats living free, are of whom all friendly and accustomed to people.

We are a small farm in Apricale, Ventimiglia, and since 2011 have been restoring old terraces with the intention to cultivate them using natural techniques with full respect for the local environment. We have 7000 square meters of land, of which only a small part is cultivated as a vegetable garden. The land includes several fruit trees and is surrounded by woods. The jobs to be done are very varied and cover different needs aimed at self sufficiency. We ask WWOOFers, depending on your ability, to help in the daily tasks of managing the garden and vines, in the preparation of preserves, as well as in other jobs such as cutting trees and cleaning the forest and terraces, maintenance, including of the dry stone walls. The house can only be reached on foot by a hilly path in 15 minutes. The house has only an outside toilet and an outdoor shower without hot water (although there is a solar heated bag available). A few minutes walk away there is a river where you can swim. Despite the lack of hot water we ask for good personal hygiene. We can host people from late March to mid-November. Depending on availability, we offer a room or a tent. We do not eat meat and are happy to adapt to special diets. We cater for both individuals and couples for a minimum period of one week. Languages spoken French and English.

Ours is a small family farm situated 19 kms from the sea and the Ligurian Riviera, about 8 Kms from the nearest town, the property is 18 has and at the edge of the Parco Naturale dell'Aveto. It is made up of mainly woodland and chestnut forest and is surrounded by uncontaminated nature and wildlife. There is a large vegetable garden, olive grove, fruit trees and hazelnuts. Our dream is to preserve this uncontaminated spot and return it to its original state after many years of neglect. The work is mainly clearing and recuperating the land whilst respecting biodiversity. Help also needed with the vegetable garden, harvesting the olives and collecting firewood and with jobs in the house. Water is from our spring, and most of the food is produced on the farm. We cook vegetarian, although sometimes we eat a little of fish. Accommodation in own room with shared bathroom, or, if preferred, in tent. Wood fired heating. There is a dog and 2 cats. We can accomodate from May/June to October/November. At other times we host only during the weekends. A little French and English spoken. The house isn't reached by public transport. We can accompany you by car to the nearest train station depending on our commitments.
The farm is located in a beautiful position at 300m altitude in Val Graveglia, within the Parco dell'Aveto, a 20-minute drive from Chiavari and Lavagna (the Ligurian Mountains, Portofino, the cinque terre and other beautiful places are easily reachable). The house is served by the communal road, the bus arrives at the village 4 km away. Hospitality is in a room with shared bathroom. A thermal stove produces hot water and we also cook on it. The intent that has pushed me to move here is to preserve and improve this piece of land that is my home and which had been neglected for some years; to create an encounter point between people, who, while pursuing different paths, share the same values ​​and love for nature, who want to cultivate the Earth and to cultivate personal growth relationships that interact with Nature. To reach these goals, I need a hand to: maintain, plant, mow, sow, build driveways, fence, cut grass, make wood, harvest olives, cultivate and make preserves and jams from the produce ... And everything that the countryside needs during the different seasons… I also organize psycho-physical training courses here (I'm a holistic trainer and specialize in Creative Expression), so it is also helpful to have a hand with preparation and participation. I love cooking and eating in company, I love the Art of recycling and transforming objects, I appreciate those who work with enthusiasm so I would like to host motivated, responsible and "positive" people to share daily life, interests and cultural exchanges. I speak Italian and I understand a bit of French and Spanish I am happy to host also for short periods and families with children as long as they are autonomous.
We have a small farm at an altitude of 500m inland from Genova near the source of the Scrivia river, therefore ideally situated for the attractions of the city and for walking and cycling. In 2006 we started cultivating vegetables using the principles of synergic and organic cultivation, (we also grow the famous Quarantina potato) soft fruit and we harvest wild fruit and herbs. We also cultivate roses for syrups. We have 4 rooms with 8 beds in our agritourism and there is plenty of space for other activities (courses workshops etc.). We make syrups, liquors conserves and aromatic vinegar from our flowers, herbs and fruit. We are two sisters, myself with my husband Stefano have a son, Sebastiano (2001), and my sister. with her daughter Lela (1991). English, French, Spanish and Portuguese spoken. Our donkey, Vitalba, the Sardinian goats Melacarla, Melateresa & Gianchetta, mixed varieties of chickens and ducks, some rabbits, our dog, Gigo and cat Misia all keep us company. We opened the agritourism and teaching farm in 2011 but still have jobs to do- fencing, clearing the land and woodland, enlarging the rose and herb cultivation, and we love to work together with our friends and guests. We are happy to teach how to cook, make bread & deserts with the produce we harvest.
We have a small organic farm, run by two sisters who are no longer young but are tenacious in carrying on the recovery of the land: we are working hard in restoring drystone walls and with the maintenance of sheds and workshops. We grow fruit trees and have a vegetable garden. The work we have done in recent years is beginning to show rewards with a fair return of vegetables, artichokes and fruit this year. We also hope to have a good olive harvest this year. There are occasionally friends and relatives who come here and are willing to give us a hand when it is needed. Our welcome to you will be on the same line of conviviality, respect and participation, and we ask for your collaboration in the work we do. We focus on seasonal jobs with others on maintenance jobs such as collecting stones for the drystone walls. It would be very nice to have females here and also people who are not so young but are well-motivated. In your free time, in addition to the fantastic nature which surround us, there is the sea with lovely beaches (Blue Flag accredited) a few minutes away by bus, and a culturally rich Liguria with countless opportunities. Guests will be accommodated in the large tavern, from whose six windows you can see the small valley where the stream runs and where the goats go to drink. The languages ​​spoken in addition to the Italian, are Spanish and a bit of French. Unfortunately I do not speak English.
We are a family: Philippe and Federica, Marius, Romeo and Oscar. We live in a beautiful medieval village in the Ligurian hinterland. We come from the city and we have been here for almost 4 years following a path of degrowth and being closer to nature. There is a small workshop where we make bread (native grains, sourdough, mill for milling the wheat), there are vegetable gardens, for now we have two goats and a cat, we hope to have hens soon, there are dry stone walls to be repaired, a little housework and making preserves, fencing ... above all a commitment to the rebirth of the sense of community, and the values ​​of sharing. We are here, in Rocchetta Nervina, 12 km from the sea and from Ventimiglia, right on the border with France. Philippe is a baker farmer, Federica works in computer communication and graze the goats, the boys study and participate in family activities. Our diet is not strictly vegetarian, even if meat consumption is very limited. Very few dairy products, no milk. We host for the pleasure of sharing our lifestyle and of learning from those who come from "outside". We are fluent in Italian and French and a little English is spoken. We can offer an independent room with a bathroom: maximum two people. A stay of at least 3 weeks is preferable.
We’re Paolo (35, Italian) and Rosa (33, Greek) and our dog Pita. We’re in the process of renovating an old abandoned farm and clearing the surrounding terraced fields. The land is located at about 200m altitude and enjoys a spectacular view of the Ligurian Sea. Genoa centre is only 45 mins away with public transportation. Sea and mountain are both easily accessible on foot. We’re part of a small group of young families that’s repopulating the Vesima Valley and recuperating its agricultural and silvopastoral tradition. Our goal is the creation of a mini farm for vegetable production, following methods that are not only sustainable but regenerative as well. Soon we’ll introduce a fruit orchard and a few small animals in our system. We focus on taking care of the soil even before the plants, and introducing ourselves in a small-scale local solidarity economy. In the meantime, there’s still a lot of construction work to be done, employing as many natural and second-hand materials as possible. We don’t eat meat, we use a compost toilet and heat our water with a solar panel and a wood stove. At the moment we live with basic comforts in a 9 square meter tiny house, but guests sleep in a bedroom in the adjacent building that has been renovated but has no heating yet. We don’t accept requests for hospitality by guests who intend to stay less than a week. We’ve been woofers ourselves, so we are confident in our ability to build a working and living environment that will satisfy us all, finding balance between work and leisure, sharing and privacy. We propose no fixed working schedule, but we work all day every day at a relaxed pace and we hope that our guests will be as excited about our project as we are.
We are a young family run farm and agritourism nestled in the woods between Piemonte and Liguria, between the Beigua Park and the Capanne di Marcarolo Park. We cultivate kiwifruit, chestnuts, strawberries, soft fruit, vegetables, medicinal plants and mushrooms all using organic methods: ingredients that we use in the kitchen of our farm in a genuine and healthy way. Our goal is to create a small, independent ecosystem, a serene oasis, where human /nature integration is beneficial and respectful of both. Our project is constantly evolving: we would like to dedicate ourselves to permaculture and learn natural water purification systems, devote ourselves directly to the herbal transformation of medicinal plants and create a local network of lasting exchanges between farmers, artisans and experts. In our kitchen we prepare traditional dishes, and we are oriented towards a vegetarian diet, so vegans and vegetarians are very welcome. We have two donkeys, a few sheep and three dogs. In addition, our farm has spaces both indoors and outdoors for the organization of seminars, meditation and yoga retreats. We often also host pilgrims going to Assisi, who walk the path of Peace, (Cammino della pace, Chemin de la Paix), which passes not far from the farm. We speak Italian, some English and Anna (our Moroccan cook) also speaks French. We can accommodate two wwoofers in the rooms of the farm, but there is also the possibility to pitch tents in the summer. We provide a computer and wifi. The nearest town is 3 km away and there is the train station and you can get to Genoa in less than an hour and Turin in two and a half hours. We hope to welcome you soon!
Hi everybody. My name is Paul, I have 20.000 mt of land in Ceriana and Bajardo (900 mt slm) and I produce olives, wood to burn and a little quantity of oil, vegetables and wine. I just started this adventure and I'm helped by my mother Giovanna, her boyfriend Adriano and my dog Pancho. We need help especially between October and February, during this period the activity is put the nets on the ground and take the olives; these operations are simple and also fun if done together, as also take olives to the frantoio where you can see directly the production of the extra-virgin oil. By the end of the winter We will be engaged in the activity of pruning, manuring and cutting the grass with the purpose of understanding and supporting the natural growth of the olive trees There are also some activities that we do during all seasons like cut wood, grow vegetables and forage for natural plants, gift of this magic land, simply by taking a walk in the forest. I can offer a private room in my house that should be shared also by two people; I don't have internet but it's possible to send email and consult the web. I accept smokers but not in the house because of health and safety. During the autumn and winter the countryside is quiet, in spring and summer everything changes and tourists come to visit us from everywhere. See you soon! :)
