This is small farm (5 hectars, half of which is forest) in a quiet green valley, 1 hour walk from the village. The railway station (7 km) is Fabro-Ficulle, halfway between Rome and Florence. Here live funny dogs (4 adults) and sometimes their puppies come visit, there are also cats, often in the house. We protect Hedgehogs, many of them all around at night. There's a veg-garden that needs weeding, and other attentions... and loads of things to do: mainly rebuilding some order here and there, help with fruits & veg.preserves, clearing, cleaning and so on. We preferably eat our own produce, gather wild herbs, truffles and fruits; we buy as little as possible and are not used to animal products.
Usually -as a guest- you have a self contained room.
we can host 1 guest at once.
Stays of at least 1 week, and it is better for someone who is happy to be on her/his own at times. Help needed mainly around and in the house and sometimes also in my ceramic lab.
Sometimes small building jobs and repairs, painting and so on (people with carpenter- electrician -plumber skills are always welcome! :) Languages: Italian, English, Spanish & basic French.
Please do not ask "how many hours", it is already written on HelpX: about 4 hours per day, nobody will control your time,this is not a factory, of course it's not a hotel though! :) let's be happy and share our best! :)
