We are five people, a couple (1963 and 1966) with our two sons and our daughter - born between 1994 and 1998.
Actually only the last son lives with us ; the others fly away and come to visit sometimes.
Although we are only 650 m above sea level, we are in the mountains, the foothills north of Mount Falterona at the Muraglione Pass on highway 67 that connects Florence to Forli, and we are 4km from the town of San Godenzo .
Between our house and San Godenzo there are few houses and only 4x4 vehicles can get up
to our house. We live in a small self-built house and we can accommodate only in a new tent or caravan .
We are re-colonizing a farm which was abandoned many years ago and main jobs are (it depends on the season) : planting , weeding and watering in the vegetable garden, collecting firewoods, maintaining the access roads; continuing with the construction of a barn and building a new stable for the cows,
building fences and various building jobs on the house. We have 15 goats, 2 cows, 1 pony, chicken, dogs and cats. From March till November we make cheese for us and some friends. We cultivate all the hay for the animals; we collect chestnuts and olives. We produce all our electricity with photovoltaic
panels and if necessary a generator. We heat with our own wood. We speak English.
