Figus Nieddu

We live at the foothills of a national Park and only 20 kilometres from the Sardinian capital, Cagliari. It is the best of both worlds! Situated on a no through road, it's peaceful with very little traffic. There is a state bus service that runs to Cagliari and back on the SS 125, we have bicycles available for cycling also. It is a lively and friendly community with weekend markets close by. We are approximately 15 minates from the beach, but there is an18 metre pool in the garden. The accommodation is independent of the house, being a camper therefore travellers can choose to eat with us or be independent.

I am Australian and Chicco, my husband is Sardinian. We have built our house out of predominantly recycled materials over the last 20 year's. Chicco is a botanist, a passionate gardener, tennis player, and electronics whizz, I work with glass and textiles, we are both very creative and artistic and this can be seen throughout the house and garden. We have travelled widely ourselves and people from all walks of life can be expected to be treated as equals with interest, respect and curiosity. The days are spent, in a relaxed fashion maintaining as much as possible a sustainable life and all that we have created here. We are both aspiring musicians; Chicco in bass guitar and I in piano and concertina. In addition i would like to add that its difficult for us to commit to hosting volunteers for 2 weeks! Our property is not large. In addition to that, we often rent out our own house throughout the summer months, when we come and go, a stay in this period maybe for even less, it all depends on the relative circumstances. Ultimately we would prefer a stay to be somewhere around a week.

I greatly enjoyed my experience staying with Taine, Chicco, and Lucy. I enjoyed learning about their way of life and culture. This experience helped me to become familiar with what living sustainably truly looks like. The hosts were super flexible with tasks as well as provided guidance for visiting the city on my days off. Taine is also a fantastic cook and I enjoyed the meals she made. My week at Figus Nieddu was peaceful and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to connect with nature. (Side note: be comfortable being around🍃)

I had a wonderful week spent here! The food was amazing and the tasks were simple, helping around the house and outside in the garden. I had some wonderful conversations with Taine and Chicco, and they made me feel so comfortable while I stayed with them. Oh, and I can’t forget how adorable Lucy is🤍

This was my first worldpacker experience and I so recommend it.

I enjoyed both the environment and the company- the views, the variety of flora, learning to garden and to be more sustainable was beautiful, and the hosts were incredibly generous and welcoming. The work didn’t feel like work as there’s no rush and the hosts were flexible about jobs. It was a calming environment at the same time that there was enough to do to fill your time, without pressure. Pretty much, I learned and relaxed loads. Exactly what I expected from this trip and way more.

Grazie mille for your kindness x

Rosa y Kiko son maravillosos, personas cariñosas, sabias, y con muchas historias para contar de sus vidas. La comida exquisita, hacían una entretención de cada momento en la cocina. Un lugar sin ruidos, rodeado de naturaleza, ideal para hacer caminatas, sin duda perfecto para quienes aman la musica o artistas. No olvides llevar tu traje de baño en cualquier época del año!! Para ir con toda la iniciativa, y dejarse querer!! Un fuerte abrazo para Rosa, otro para Kiko y para la tierna blanquita Luci.

Sin duda, el mejor voluntariado que he hecho.
Te brindan tú espacio personal, las tareas son sencillas, respetan los tiempos, te sumerges en la cultura de Italia y Australia, adquieres aprendizaje en campo, pintura, etc.
Rose, Chicco 🤍 muchas gracias por su hospitalidad, me hicieron sentir como en casa, como estar haciendo las labores con mis papás, por las comidas tan deliciosas, por enseñarme tanto sobre Sardegna y animarme a descubrir más.
Ci vediamoooo :)

Thats lovely. Thank you very much. The feelings are mutual.
Hmm the phone... magari non perso, magari rubato... e sempre al rischio nella tasca, mi spiace e una rottura cambiare telefono. Ben tornata in Messico
