I am an open minded person and open to new experiences. Travelling is like the second nature for me and like to hit the road by the backpack, not knowing what is around the next corner. We participate to this exchange initiative because we love to help our guests to see the Italian culture from the inside and to really experience what everyday life is like. We like genuine international culture exchange and our aim is to keep this house full of positive energy.

I live in a wonderful villa with swimming pool in the glorious countryside between Umbria and Tuscany, near Perugia. From 2012 I rent apartments and rooms for holiday and I need some help with tourists and the general maintenance of the villa (gardening, swimming pool, house works, animals, etc). To our helper guests we offer a private double room situated in the renovated outbuilding and the use of our bathroom located in our apartment.

This is a beautiful country house dating back, probably to the eighteenth century, located in the gentle Umbrian hills of middle Italy, overlooking the beautiful historic village of Montepetriolo, surrounded by olive groves, vineyards, fields of sunflowers and red poppies. The Tenuta is situated at a stone's throw of Lake Trasimeno, only 19km from Perugia (with its small but yet international airport) and only 30 minutes drive to Tuscany. The property includes an area of one acre converted into a fantastically sculpted park with a large variety of flowers, fruit trees, forest trees, which offer complete privacy to the property. In the park there are lounge areas, shaded areas and pergolas for dining outside. Also found in the tranquil and picturesque garden are pathways and a gazebo covered with climbing plants, as well as a lovely swimming pool 10 mt 5 mt hidden by cypresses and a variety of roses. The main house has a beautiful architecture adorned with a turret and a typical external staircase. The tiles on the first floor are original cotto floors, the ceilings are typical Italian beams and beautiful tiles.
