The Experience

We run a “Nature & Dogs” business, in the north of Italy, in a big land deep in the nature. We are improving our buildings and space, so we need an extra help with maintenance and gardening. The tasks are pretty physical and it can be tough if you are not used to it, but we are always together when doing these tasks :) Our house is really basic and we live a simple life. We always have dogs around and we have nature and sea close enough!

Marco and Elisa were excellent hosts.
They were flexible, respectful and always ready to listen, they made me feel really welcome during my stay. Cooper will not only connect you to nature but will also teach you a new way of living and being. the mountain that surrounds cooper is truly mystical, full of mysteries and objects lost in time. you will also learn valuable lessons on how to manage feelings of desolation and fixing things you never thought you could fix.
You will still be able to enjoy a healthy outdoor lifestyle with the land and the animals...
cooper has a piece of my heart

Great experience in Cooper 313, Marco and Elisa are very kind and the whole team too. You take the bus or the bike and in five minutes you are enjoying in the beach, there are so many places to visit around I really enjoyed my stay here, thanks guys. Hope to see you again :)

I’ve spent almost a month working at Cooper, an always improving place that made me want to improve, to learn not just about the craft itself but also a very good working ethic in a nature place. Also at non working time we could spend some fun adventure moments with other volunteers and also with Marco Elisa and little wise Beatrice.
There is always something to do most of it physical work and they are very mind opened if you have something to propose.
Enjoy it ;)

I loved everything about Cooper’s 313 farm
From day 1 to day 7, I felt at home 😍!
Marco is a great communicator and leader👏
Elisa and her daughter Beatrice are very passionate about caring for the dogs 🐶.
Every night at dinner, we made a plan or schedule of the next day activities which was great.
Everyone knew what was expected of him/her.
I’ll miss Cooper 😊, Pepole and everyone at the farm.
I definitely can’t wait to plan another trip in the summer !

Love ❤️,
