We are ecofarm between Rome and Naples, in the Abruzzi National Park. It is located in a beautiful area at the foot of the mountain just under two hours from Rome and very well connected with both cities. The farm was abandoned over 40 years ago, and we are slowly bringing it back to life.
It is still rustic, with no electricity, an outside bamboo shack shower, and a compost toilet. The experience is definitely not suitable for everyone. Right now, camping is available. The buildings still need work to make them suitable for living.
We welcome new numbers to our community. If you want to come, please send us a detailed email. Let us know how long you want to stay, your hobbies and interests, travel experience—one of your best experiences and why.
Also let us know how you think you will contribute to our community.
We are developing our organic garden, but we also need help in many different fields. People are welcome who have skills in carpentry, building, arts of all types, and agriculture, but who also have creativity and imagination. In general, we like active people who have passion and love inside them.
The farm is very rustic, so if you need comforts you should not come here. You will not be happy. If you are happy with a simple lifestyle and beautiful mountains and nature around you, this could be a good place for you.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
Former/Other Names: Le mogli

Statement of Housing Non-discrimination:
Our community fits the legal definition of "housing for older persons" * and thus we may restrict membership/residency to those of a certain age and may have limits on child membership/residency in accordance with the law. Our community does not discriminate based on race/color, national origin, religion, sex/gender, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, ancestry, source of income, creed, personal appearance, political affiliation, HIV infection, military/veteran status, unfavorable military discharge, gender identity or expression, receiving public assistance, or domestic abuse.
Because our housing is a single housing unit and requires the sharing of bathroom, kitchen and common space membership/residency may be restricted based on sex/gender in accordance with the law. Our community does not discriminate based on race/color, national origin, religion, family status (i.e. having children, not having children, or being pregnant), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, ancestry, source of income, age, creed, personal appearance, political affiliation, HIV infection, military/veteran status, unfavorable military discharge, gender identity or expression, receiving public assistance, or domestic abuse.
Our community is a legally sanctioned church or religious organization and living in our community is restricted to members of that religion as allowed by law. Our religion does not discriminate based on race, color, or national origin. Housing in our community is non-commercial (i.e. not intended to make a profit).
Our community does not provide land or housing and is therefore not subject to fair housing laws.
Housing in our community is incidental to employment and therefore fair housing laws do not apply (though employment discrimination laws may).
