The Experience

I am a hippie, poet and singer song-writer living alone in a country house with a small fruit orchard in Northern Calabria. I own many musical instruments and live in a relaxed way, stocking food and just doing what really needs to be done. I am happy to host people from all culture, whether they wish to stay months or are just passing by. I always need help with at least song lyrics in foreign languages and household chores (cooking/cleaning).

Castrovillari it's a tiny town perfect to rest and have a peaceful day's around the nature and farms. During my stay at Antonio's place we had a nice conversations about life, our ideologys, music, travels and many funny stories. We even made a song together!

Fue una experiencia distinta, como estar en un camping. Antonio fue muy amable y estuvo siempre disponible a ayudarme, me ayudo a practicar el idioma. Algunas cosas me hubiese gustado saber antes como por ejemplo que en la casa no hay una ducha dentro o que dormi en la misma habitacion que el. Por lo demas estuvo bien.
