Want to spend a relaxing green holiday in a sustainable community in Italy? Visit the XVth century hamlet of Monestevole, Umbria that was transformes into an eco-retreat where like-minded people can learn about sustainability and get their hands dirty, while at the same time enjoying the traditional Umbrian cuisine and culture of farmers, horse-lovers, artisans and musicians. The ethos of Tribewanted, the organisation behind the Monestevole project, is to protect the local environment and promote the local culture, while we adapt the project to the local traditions.
At the Monestevole retreat you will find 5 horses, 5 sheep, 10 pigs, chickens, peacocks, cats, dogs and at least 10 humans to learn about sustainable living. Private en-suite rooms and apartments cost from €500 a week.
