Our place is a little far away from the closest city, but we are always willing to give you a ride!

I had a great experience at the guest house! Even though it was my first volunteer trip and I only had limited skills Matteo and Elena taught me a lot and gave me insight into their work and life. From the first day they treated me really well and helped me as much as they could. Working hours can be different; you might get some extra free days, but have to work more on others. You need to manage groceries well, because the next supermarket is far away, but Elena and Matteo will always give you a lift when they can. I will definitely miss the amazing view and sunset! Thanks for everything!

I had an amazing time. It was my first time volunteering but everyone was very welcoming, I met really cool people and had a lot of fun. The work was also quite easy and you could do it together with the other volunteers. Thank you for a wonderful time!

The place is really beautiful and everyone is really welcoming including all of Matteo's family. You will make great friends with all of the other volunteers and have so much fun. There's a variety of tasks and events going on during the summer so no two days are ever the same! If you like walking or cycling and being outdoors this place is perfect. Loved my time here and hope to visit again in the future!!!

I had a great experience here. The owners were really cool and pushed me in a positive way. As a result, I learned a lot of new things and overcame many obstacles which stood in my way. The work was very fair and there was lots of free time. We went to different local areas and they showed us around some great restaurants. If you want a great place to spend time in Italy, you should look no further.

Wow I mean I could not have asked for a better month a the guest house. I really did not want to leave and am somewhat regretting leaving. Thank you so much to Tomas, Elaina, Matteo, Manuela! You guys were the absolute best you guys welcomed me into your home and treated me like life long friends which I'd consider you guys that now. If you are looking for a great place to meet new people and put in some hands on work this is the place. Got to do some really cool projects and bartend a couple weddings. Best experience of my life!!!!
