My father owns a country house...

The house is very big, itís located in the natural park called "Riserva dell'Acquerino".
Itís an incredible place, of a breathtaking beauty, on the alpes above Prato.
After an hourís drive from Florence and a 3km dirt road you can to reach Luogomano, this is its name.

The closest village itís about 8km far away, around Luogomano there's nothing but woods, chestnuts trees, blackberry bushes, deer and wild boars.

During the last 100 years it has been bombed, neglected, flooded and moulded, ransacked. Right now the desire is to bring back its old beauty in order to welcome friends and acquaintance in a place that its more and more rare, where as far as the eye can see there are only trees, there is no traffic noise and at night you can see the stars.

From 1st to 28th of july, we will be there, to work all together to restore Luogomano as a real paradise. Days will be spent by painting walls, fixing furniture, taking care of the homegrown vegetables, coking and enjoining.
every day there will some hours of work, and a some hours to have fun together :
go and visit the places near,
Walk in the forests and rivers
learn Italian cooking,
lissen music, reed a book or just

The idea is to rediscover the beauty of simple life in the country and to share by working all together, things that nowadays are getting forgotten...

There will be work, but also time to learn, teach, relax.

this summer we really need a carpenter and bricklayer!
