We Simona and Danilo, keepers of the Center Thar dö Ling, with Anthea and Ethan 8 and 6 years old, in the mountains of Palermo in the middle of nature, one and half hectares of terraced land with stone walls with olive trees, fruit trees, pine forest and two streams. You can reach us by bus from the railway station of Palermo until Montelepre or Poplar where we pick; putting us agree we can pick you up in Palermo. We have almost completed the rehabilitation of buildings in green building, now we try to put into production vacant for over 25 years, by applying the principles and techniques of permaculture and learning the art of "do it yourself" for the construction of a reality in balance with the nature of the place and tending to self-sufficiency of the local community. We work in the house to complete the restructuring, we prune and collect twigs from olive and pine trees produce wood chips and firewood for warmth in the winter, produce essential oils, we manage the land for fire protection, we collect the olives, we plant trees, we make bread and we begin to deal with horticulture and beekeeping. Agreeing times we can offer you a ride in the car to Palermo and possibly hospitality in the city for leisure. We eat vegetarian food genuine and we share it with those who come to visit us. We can accommodate you in a room shared with other guests, or in tents in the olive grove where there is a comfortable compost toilet overlooking the valley. Let's talk about English and French.
