The Experience

We're an eco-village with the purpose of reconnection with Nature and a will to work for the awakening of consciousness and work on self, all this supported by an atmosphere of joy, trust and liberation from false ego. We have 3 yurts, 1 straw house, 1 caravan, 1 tipi, 4 compost toilets, a kitchen, a meditation circus and a bathroom with sauna. We live in an olive garden in a National Park in front of the Adriatic cost (800m walk)

Giardino della Gioia is very special for me. Since my first moment there, everyone made me feel welcome and since that moment I knew I was ment to be there. It was more then just a vacation, I felt connection with that place. I love how peaceful it is and how nice people are there... I made some really good friends that I know I'd see some other time again.
Thanks everyone in the Giardino!
