Help rescue our road and keep the place accessible

Hi! We are George, Sophie and our kids Caio and India.
We live completely off-grid in the wilderness of Tuscany. Here we maintain two ancient farmhouses and run a small homestead.

The 3km long 'road' is now in serious need of repair and, even though we try to walk up a down as much as possible, it's still our lifeline to the outside world. Built by hand around the 1950's it's never really had much attention since and it's now getting to a point where even our Landrover Defender is having a hard time reaching the house. Simple things such as bringing up supplies, including the hay for our cow, and doing the school run etc are becoming extreme off-road adventures (not to mention occuring regular Landrover maintenance costs)
With your kind donation we plan to buy several truck loads of gravel to fill the holes in order to at least make it a smoother journey in the Landrover. Eventually making the place accessible in a regular car would be something to aim for, but we don't want to aim too's a hellva long road, so let's not get too carried away. Rome wasn't built in a day!

By supporting us to improve the accessibility to the place(s) you will be helping us keep the whole project alive.
The donations will also fund other necessities such as diesel for the tractor/digger and Landrover.
Your donation, however big or small, will help us immensely and will be very much appreciated!
Hope to see you soon. Please visit!

P.s here is a video a guest made of his one night stay at our place. It's a very brief insight into the project but at least it'll provide you with some nice images and an introduction to our cow Moona :)
