Genova

Hi guys, we are a young couple from Verona, Stefania and Mauro with newborn Gioele. For 5 months we have lived in a old farm near Genova, in the middle of the forest with a view of the sea. We have wwoofed in Italy and in other parts of the world (Morocco, Argentina...). At the moment we are working to improve the house and clean around. Fortunately we have an oven to make bread, pizza and cakes that we sell in the Saturday markets. We offer lots of places to sleep, good food and wine and lots of fun. You can reach the sea in 30 minutes by foot and the bus station in 20 minutes. We speak English, Spanish, German and French.

We’re Paolo (35, Italian) and Rosa (33, Greek) and our dog Pita. We’re in the process of renovating an old abandoned farm and clearing the surrounding terraced fields. The land is located at about 200m altitude and enjoys a spectacular view of the Ligurian Sea. Genoa centre is only 45 mins away with public transportation. Sea and mountain are both easily accessible on foot. We’re part of a small group of young families that’s repopulating the Vesima Valley and recuperating its agricultural and silvopastoral tradition. Our goal is the creation of a mini farm for vegetable production, following methods that are not only sustainable but regenerative as well. Soon we’ll introduce a fruit orchard and a few small animals in our system. We focus on taking care of the soil even before the plants, and introducing ourselves in a small-scale local solidarity economy. In the meantime, there’s still a lot of construction work to be done, employing as many natural and second-hand materials as possible. We don’t eat meat, we use a compost toilet and heat our water with a solar panel and a wood stove. At the moment we live with basic comforts in a 9 square meter tiny house, but guests sleep in a bedroom in the adjacent building that has been renovated but has no heating yet. We don’t accept requests for hospitality by guests who intend to stay less than a week. We’ve been woofers ourselves, so we are confident in our ability to build a working and living environment that will satisfy us all, finding balance between work and leisure, sharing and privacy. We propose no fixed working schedule, but we work all day every day at a relaxed pace and we hope that our guests will be as excited about our project as we are.
Ours is a small family farm situated 19 kms from the sea and the Ligurian Riviera, about 8 Kms from the nearest town, the property is 18 has and at the edge of the Parco Naturale dell'Aveto. It is made up of mainly woodland and chestnut forest and is surrounded by uncontaminated nature and wildlife. There is a large vegetable garden, olive grove, fruit trees and hazelnuts. Our dream is to preserve this uncontaminated spot and return it to its original state after many years of neglect. The work is mainly clearing and recuperating the land whilst respecting biodiversity. Help also needed with the vegetable garden, harvesting the olives and collecting firewood and with jobs in the house. Water is from our spring, and most of the food is produced on the farm. We cook vegetarian, although sometimes we eat a little of fish. Accommodation in own room with shared bathroom, or, if preferred, in tent. Wood fired heating. There is a dog and 2 cats. We can accomodate from May/June to October/November. At other times we host only during the weekends. A little French and English spoken. The house isn't reached by public transport. We can accompany you by car to the nearest train station depending on our commitments.
Our farm is situated in the Vesima valley, overlooking the sea and topped by mountains an hour from the centre of Genoa and half an hour from the beach. We have a two year old child and another on the way. We grow vegetables on our narrow, steep terraces, almost all the work is manual, and strive to seek simple solutions in order to obtain the result. In the meantime, we will finish building our house in wood, straw and earth, your advice and interest will be most welcome! We live and work in collaboration with other farmers of Vesima, and often you will go from farm to farm. We like to engage deeply with the guests in our lives, to this end, we appreciate and stay at least a month. Not having our own house, the ways in which we can accommodate are varied, imaginative and imperfect, please contact us to discuss.
The name of this farm comes from the tobacco smuggling that was done here many years ago. Now it is a house but soon it will become a permaculture designed farm We are Giorgia and Francesca, and we have been given this place by a psychiatrist from Turin it is situated in the hills above Genoa 15 min from the sea (by car) and borders the Parco del Beigua. We are both teachers of the Free School of Synergistic Agriculture (Libera Scuola di Agricoltura sinergica) and are active members of the Academy of permaculture. We work and collaborate with the association Terra! which supports this project. The project involves the renovation of a 1900 stone farmhouse, agricultural activities also involving a nearby hamlet  and young people who want to learn natural techniques. To date, we have built a micro-stone house with roof that can be walked on, a small reed bed system, an cob, snail shaped oven, a compost toilet, a solar panel and a thermo-solar. Our goal is self-sufficiency with food and energy and agricultural production especially of wild berries and rose syrup which we sell through local fair-trade and GAS outlets. We are in a forest of chestnut and cherries and live with two dogs and two cats and several people who pass through, especially in the summer. In summer we organize various events, courses and camps for adults and children. Here people come to learn to live in an environmentally friendly way, leave their footprint and have fun !!!  
We are an agritourism farm in the Ligurian Apennines at 650 mt s.l.m. immersed in unspoiled nature, 50 km from Genoa, 140 from Milan. We deal mainly with agriculture (traditional, synergistic, permaculture) and animal breeding (we have 2 ponies, a donkey, goats, chickens, pigs) all intended for educational activities and “petting farm”. We make goat and cow cheeses. In addition to this we have been an educational farm for 15 years and we have the restaurant with our products or at zero km. From April to October we always need help for activities in the fields, maintenance work, wood, animal care ..... We still have many projects to implement (a small apiary, compost toilet, camping area, house of herbs ...) we are a group of 6/7 people whose goal is a happy life respecting nature and animals. We can accommodate 3/4 people in a camper or tent. Smokers ok in outdoor spaces, pets we prefer to avoid because we already have four dogs. We await your requests to share the beauty of this place together!
Small family run farm. We have goats, sheep, rabbits, geese, chickens, horses, pigs. There is a small orchard and vegetable garden, we also grow Roses to make syrups. There is also an agritourism and we are a teaching farm
This farm is situated a few kms from Genova and the coast in a small, isolated and peaceful valley. By the side of a river we have built our house but to become a 'proper' farm we need help with the land and surrounding woodland (7 ha). Tasks to be done vary according to the season and to the interests/skills of people who come here and include, opening an old water channel, collecting fire wood for the winter, building dry stone walls, fencing, in the vegetable garden & house, making jams and conserves or helping to teach our son English! In your free time you can visit the town or the beach, swim in the river or go for walks in the woods. We love music and have a guitar and piano that you can use. Accommodation in two small independent houses nearby. Stays of at least two weeks preferred. We have two children, (born 1993 & 2003), and are happy to accommodate families. English (mother tongue), French and Spanish spoken.
Born from a passion for nature and healthy eating, we grow ancient varieties of fruit and vegetables, which we transform in the farm laboratory into jams, jellies, syrups (of roses, elderflower, sour cherries ...) and preserves. The farm is located half an hour from the center of Genoa in a quiet and peaceful green area, reachable from the small station of Sardorella, immersed in a chestnut wood with the picturesque Genoa-Casella train. These places are suitable for those who love walking in nature, even with montainbike and given the close proximity also to visit the city and the Riviera with Recco, Camogli, Chiavari and the Cinque Terre etc, The accommodation consists of three beds with bathroom, the best period from March to October.
We have a small farm at an altitude of 500m inland from Genova near the source of the Scrivia river, therefore ideally situated for the attractions of the city and for walking and cycling. In 2006 we started cultivating vegetables using the principles of synergic and organic cultivation, (we also grow the famous Quarantina potato) soft fruit and we harvest wild fruit and herbs. We also cultivate roses for syrups. We have 4 rooms with 8 beds in our agritourism and there is plenty of space for other activities (courses workshops etc.). We make syrups, liquors conserves and aromatic vinegar from our flowers, herbs and fruit. We are two sisters, myself with my husband Stefano have a son, Sebastiano (2001), and my sister. with her daughter Lela (1991). English, French, Spanish and Portuguese spoken. Our donkey, Vitalba, the Sardinian goats Melacarla, Melateresa & Gianchetta, mixed varieties of chickens and ducks, some rabbits, our dog, Gigo and cat Misia all keep us company. We opened the agritourism and teaching farm in 2011 but still have jobs to do- fencing, clearing the land and woodland, enlarging the rose and herb cultivation, and we love to work together with our friends and guests. We are happy to teach how to cook, make bread & deserts with the produce we harvest.
