LOOKING FOR A COUPLE WHO CAN HELP OUT FOR 2 or 3 WEEKS IMMEDIATELY: GENERAL TIDYING, CUTTING GRASS, WORKING IN VEGGIE GARDEN, PAINTING WINDOWS & DOORS. *looking for an extra pair of hands to help us out NOT to use as slave labour : )

We are an Australian Italian couple living in the hills above Cortona with our two boys (11 & 13) some goats, a cat, a dog, and some chickens.

Tasks vary according to the seasons.
In spring and Autumn we need help with general work about the property as well as with bigger projects. Tasks may involve any of the following...... fencing, paving, digging trenches, cutting grass, clearing/cleaning woodlands, woodcutting, childminding, painting, gardening, helping out with the goats and chickens.

The summer season is when we rent out our three apartments and the work involves general tidying and maintenance........sweeping paths, cutting grass, cleaning pool, weeding BIG veggie garden, helping with change over day.

We can accommodate up to two people at one time. Accommodation in spring/autumn is in one of our rental apartments and in summer it's either in our house or in a big tent in a shady paddock with a real bed.

Winter is generally our hibernation period but we do occasionally require responsible house-sitters.

Anyone who feels comfortable taking over kitchen duties for a bit is always welcome! We eat lots of pasta coupled with in-season produce. We're not vegetarian but most meals contain more legumes than meat.

You need to be flexible, energetic, outgoing and friendly. We tackle every task with a team effort approach and work together to complete projects.

We have found that we prefer helpxers that can stay for at least 3 or 4 weeks or more (especially in the summer period).

We live in a really pretty quiet corner of Tuscany 12km from the beautiful lively town of Cortona, 1.5 hours by train to Florence and 2.5 hours to Rome.
