Villa alle novaline

It's an experience that allows you to connect with nature, meet fellow volunteers , live in a historical building and enjoy the local culture

I have been hosting volunteers for many years because for me meeting people from around the world is like going around the world without traveling ! In my other lives I have traveled a lot, lived and studied in different countries, been a professional photographer, and finally moved to this beautiful spot of the world to raise two kids on my own. My family runs a hospitality business in a very big old house which sits on a hill. I offer lots of space to volunteers and expect that they share household responsibilities with me and my family (which include cooking and cleaning the kitchen and other common areas )

I really felt comfortable and a part of the family. Marianna and Diana did everything to make me comfortable and the work was totally manageable. Really cute animals and Wilfred is a kind man who really cares about everyone around him.

Un Lindo ambiente🏕, es un hogar muy acogedor, Mariana es muy atenta a tus necesidades y siempre esta de buen humor, Wilfred es muy amable y cocina bien, la carga laboral es leve, dependiendo de la temporada puede hacer mucho frio, es un poco dificil acceder al transporte pero nada de el otro mundo, recomiendo traer un buen calçado a prueba de agua, aprendi mucho de la cultura y me diverti colaborando, sin duda me llevo Buenos recuerdos de este lugar.😁😁😁

Marianna is very generous and nice, who's willing to share Italian culture. The villas and the nature are beautiful (I believe it would be much more gorgeous in spring or summer).
During the high season it would be a bit stressed, and distribution and arrangement of bed sheets, rugs...could be more organized, otherwise everything is perfect and relaxed.
Time is flexible and you are able to explore cities nearby. Though it takes more time on transportation, it's still available. Neighbors are kind and it's a plus if you can also speak Italian or Deutsch.
Overall it is a lovely experience!

I had a great time at the ancient villa in the mountains. The surroundings and general atmosphere of the place are very beautiful. There was lots of space for me to explore and I always discovered something new.
The host Marianna and her daughter welcomed me to their home and let me grow part of it and the place. I‘m very grateful for that.
When it came to the working schedule Marianna was flexible on the times which gave me the possibilty to use my free time the way I desired.
Overall, this has been a very special experience to me and it made me discover a lot about me and this world.
