El alojamiento
Please note due to Covid we are leaving 4 day gaps between visitors. The Orto One cottage is separate to the house we live in but is immediately adjacent to it. The bedroom faces east and receives beautiful morning sun. It has a woollen rug, wonderful mid century furniture and an en suite.
It is spacious with views of Mount Franklin. The intimate bathroom receives chlorine free water from our rainwater tank or bore and what a pleasure it is to use! The communal kitchen/living room is accessed by exiting the bedroom and walking outside an undercover walkway (a mere three metres). I use the word communal because Orto Two has access to it. If Orto One and Orto Two are booked by different people not travelling together and both guests are interested in using the kitchen then the kitchen becomes a shared space. We wanted to foster a shared space because when we were in Italy we stayed in an agri-turismo villa with the same set up and we really loved it.
The walkway between the bedroom and kitchen is undercover and protected by a beautiful wooden facade. Our winters are very cold and very windy so do what the Europeans, Americans and Canadians do and bring lots of warm clothes, scarves and hats. The kitchen has been lovingly furnished with found objects and furniture from vintage stores in our area. There is an oven and gas cook top, fridge, toaster, kettle and wood fired stove for heating. Once the fire is on, the room heats very quickly. In the bedroom, the Scandinavian NOBO panel heater heats the room to a deliciously warm temperature.
A new prairie/bee garden is being established to the west of the guest cottage and to the north a new kitchen garden. We are currently fencing the paddocks to make way for future free range pasture fed pigs. We have planted thousands of young trees, so there are tree guards throughout the property. There are four of us permanently living on the farm, myself and Ralf and our two girls Ahlia and Artemisia. We also often host international guests who offer us help on the farm in exchange for a home. Our home and garden design is based on permaculture principles and we like to make and grow as much of our own food as possible. I am almost always in the kitchen baking, fermenting, making yogurt, preserving, making soap, or cleaning foraged fruits and seeds, or in the garden, watering, planting, sowing seeds in trays and choosing what seeds to order for the new season. I work full time on the property. Every Thursday morning I teach an Italian language class from my home as it is a language I love and my first language. To find out what we are up to most days please see the Instagram account maravillagedreaming or please see my blog Village Dreaming as it will give you a very good idea of who we are and the many projects we are passionately cultivating. We are a non smoking property, and that applies to every bit of our property. We also encourage you to have waste free meals while here and to take responsibility for the waste you produce as much as possible, with the exception of compostables: we provide a compost bin. We provide a bin in the bathroom as well because that is necessary. I love to give tours of what we are up to and try and offer this opportunity to every guest. If you wish to eat in, there is almost always something to harvest from the garden, herbs all year round, berries in mid to late summer and a mix of vegetables.
We really look forward to sharing our story with you and hearing yours. We love having air BnB guests!

Acceso para huéspedes
You can access the piazza garden, the kitchen garden, our wetland garden and take walks around our property. When the kitchen garden is very productive you are welcome to access herbs and vegetables and berries. Just come and touch base with me to see what is growing abundantly. Our property is very new, we have been building for the past three years and have many projects on the go: revegetation, plantings of nuts, oaks, chestnuts and hazelnuts. The establishment of a fruit and berry orchard.
Workshops/classes private or group in: fermenting, naturally leavened bread baking, preserving, yoghurt and Labneh, home made pasta, soap making using readily available animal fats. If you are interested in a workshop send me a message and we can discuss pricing and workshop theme.
We also have extremely wonderful neighbours: and we highly encourage you to visit the free range pork farm called Jonai who raise pigs ethically and humanly. They have an onsite butchers shop where you can purchase their various cuts and sausages and an open gate policy. Our other neighbours are a little further away, a five minute drive from us (anyone within a five minute drive is a neighbour to us) and are called Captains Creek Organic Wines, they have an on farm restaurant, a very productive organic market garden and produce organic wines. If you are visiting us during strawberry season (summer to early autumn), then we also recommend Claire and Pete's Morningswood Farm.

Otros aspectos destacables
We really encourage guests to consume food and drinks in the kitchen lounge area. The impact of spills in the bedrooms is really felt by us, as linens cannot be used again once wine or tea, or oily foods make contact. The tannins in wine and tea don't completely come out and oils are impossible. We really want to keep our prices low. Food and drink spills have a direct impact on our ability to sustain a low price, as it forces us to buy new linen after a single use. The straw cottage sits adjacent to our straw home, so if you are wanting heaps of privacy, you will find it wanting. However you will have privacy in your own kitchen and guest room. We have designed our property so as to maximise human interactions and wanted to create a village like atmosphere. If you are a foodie then please pop into my kitchen or kitchen garden to see what I am up to. Our farm property is very new and we are still working on many projects: main house kitchen fit out, garden beds in the passive solar heating/propagation greenhouse, we need to build a pizza/bread oven, and complete landscaping and garden work, as well as continuing to establish fruit and berry orchards.

Our neighbourhood is great. We are in a farm district with pork, cattle, chicken, organic wine and vegetable farmers. The landscape is beautiful I think. You can purchase free range pork from our neighbours Jonai and Organic wine from Captain's Creek Wines. We sometimes have fruit, herbs & vegetables for sale too for those who would like to take some home with them (seasonally available). The Maze House on 3155 Midland Hwy, Newlyn North, has a really beautiful ornamental and vegetable garden. If you are a garden lover like me, you will really like the Maze House. Lambley's Nursery is on 395 Lesters Road, Ascot, a 30min drive from us. They have really wonderful and unique perennials for water efficient gardens.
There are lots of foraging opportunities too. Plums, apples, elderberries, and wild herbs in summer. Pine mushrooms, chestnuts and quinces in Autumn/Winter.
