Pratolungo is a wonderful place in southern Tuscany, on a hill (800m) which has been abandoned for at least 10 years before I bought it. About half of the property is covered with trees and bushes, the rest is now green land.

I am looking for helpers from April to September 2014 for planting Lavanda and trees, gardening, cutting trees and bushes, building gates, helping with the guests (preparing tents, help in the kitchen) and for working with our cute little donkeys!

Our cultures will be Lavanda (1-2 hectares), Nuts and fruit trees (1-2 hectares) and a big garden for vegetables.
Our three donkeys should be trained to carry luggage on hiking tours.

We offer accommodation and meals to tourists in our open-air hotel (5 double "rooms", see website)
In the future we will built a small lake to collect rain water, therefore we have to cut down the bushes in an area of about 2000 square meters.
Our place is run only with water from our own little well and a small solar system for electricity and warm water.

the only stone house we have is used as a kitchen, (I live in a camper) guests and helpers sleep in comfortable tents, most of them do have a proper bed. If there are many guests helpers may have to sleep in a normal tent with sleeping bag.

I speak english, italian, german and a bit of french :-)
