I own a large country property in rural Umbria with a house, cottage and apartment holiday rentals. There are lovely gardens which need upkeep, and a pool. The property is about 20 minutes away from a market town with shopping , restaurants, cafes etc. We are about 30 minutes north of Perugia. I share the property with five dogs, a couple of cats and some hens - as well as guests during the holiday seasons.

The type of help needed differs with the seasons. In the spring to autumn the main help would be in the garden - grass cutting, weeding, watering (lots of watering!!), general tidying and some light maintenance, perhaps cleaning the pool. Also taking the dogs for a walk, feeding the dogs and cats, letting the hens out and putting them away in the evening. Perhaps a bit of shopping and maybe helping with guests requests from time to time. In the winter the help is mainly with the animals and a bit of gardening and tidying, perhaps some computer work and decorating but mainly as company.
Also, non smokers preferred. Work is 15hrs/week in exchange for board and half the cost of food.

A studio apartment is provided consisting of a living/sleeping area with double bed, separate kitchen and shower-room. There is also an outside patio. Use of an old but working Fiat Punto included.

Must like animals - dogs and cats. Most work will be outdoors. Property is in a rural location and 5km up a rough road, so the person(s) needs to like a country life - location is beautiful and peaceful. Help need all year round. Driving license essential.
