Castello di Ristonchi

Hi we are Stefanie (American) and Rasmus (Danish) we met when Stefanie rented a room in Rasmus' Copenhagen apartment on Airbnb! Now we are married with two kids and live in an old castle in Italy :) Our focus is to live a simpler life in a community setting surrounded by nature. To get away from the stress and the consumerism and get back to the earth and the love. To build, to learn and to create. We try to be as self-sustainable and waste-free as possible! We welcome any help and tips from you.

We need some volunteers at a time so there is plenty of opportunities to make friends. We also have different tasks and we hope that you don't mind doing and learning a little bit of everything. We are a 20-30 minute walk from the nearest bus and shop. If you do not have a car we can pick you up at the nearest bus stop.

It was my first time using Worldpackers and it couldn’t be better! Stefanie respect the five hours agreement and the five work days (and she was really flexible about eventual changes), in the days that the castle was hosting an event we were mostly responsible for dish washing and cleaning castle areas and in the others days we did the harvesting and gardening. The best part is the people working there, I met amazing people and really connect with myself. It was a amazing experience, you just have to be aware about the distance from the city that makes difficult to visit others cities.

Very nice experience. The castle is beautiful and the sunsets are some of the most beautiful I have ever seen. The tasks are easy. I applied for the kitchen, even though all I could do was wash the dishes. We ate super well, the best pizza in Italy without a doubt!!! I met super nice people with whom I hope to keep in touch. Stefany and Rasmus are very friendly, they always had a good treatment. I had to leave before and they understood and accepted without problem. Place to disconnect from the routine, rest, and enjoy nature. I recommend it!!

Stefani and Rasmus were very laid back hosts and this castle is a dream! My time here was only a couple of weeks, but the work was not hard at all, mostly dishwashing. Such a unique setting with travelers from all over and fun events you get to help out at. Bring a book or two and some hiking boots as there is a lot of down time!

The highlight of this stay was some of the people that we worked with. Stefanie and Rasmus were extremely wonderful and they made it known that they cared about our comfort and safety during our stay. If you choose to volunteer here, be very aware of how isolated you are. They were flexible with our ability to save up days off to travel a bit while we were there, but it really is a trip to get to civilization. The view is spectacular, but I would advise a one month stay before you will get the itch to travel again. If you go in the summer months, the mosquitoes are killer.
