400 ha of land with 1134m mountain top, pine forest, spectacular views. Nearest village 3km. At 450m, we have small valleys comprising fields of cereals, vegetables, gardens and fruit. We are currently herding sheep, horses, pigs and other farm animals. We aid reforestation. Our objectives are to build bungalows in nature. There are several houses and a big workshop. Particular skills: farming, gardening, building, mechanics and arts crafts.

We are specially interested in people who love natural habitats and would like to stay for a long time.

We need a knowlegable person to stay that could put energy into the large vegetable gardens.

At the moment we are working to improve the farm buildings and land. We are also developing activity holidays on and around the farm, so as well as day to day jobs like cooking, cutting firewood and gardening etc, we also need people that would like to get involved with, or start their own project.
We have a family from England staying, whos children attend the local school (arrive at school by pony and bike). Clare is working with the horses and needs help with exercising and the day to day care. She is developing the trekking and would like to host some training courses.

Ideas for other projects with willing and able people:

Rock climbing
Paragliding
aerial heights course / adventure playground
training courses
building natural holiday cabins
picture framing and selling
Other horse activities including Parelli
...Ideas please!!

PS if possible bring your own boots, torch and sleeping bag or sheets.
