This is a beautiful place in a hilly landscape, set in 22 hectares of unspoilt countryside, 12 km from the Etruscan hill town Cortona. We are a German/English couple who have owned the house for the past 40 years and have a number of ongoing projects that are fun to do with other people: the vegetable garden, the olive grove, the orchard. Then there is the general maintenance of the grounds, the pool and the house that we rent out to holiday makers in the summer. We have no animals as we like to be independent and free to travel.
There are a lot of interesting things to do and people to meet in and around Cortona. Cortona is on the train line from Florence to Rome, one can easily visit all the major tuscan towns by train. We plan to work 4 - 5 hours a day for 5 days a week. You will have your own room in the house, good local food and free wifi.

Hi! I'm a math teacher and my husband an engineer. We live in a very amazing place: in the country, in the hills, but very close to the city of Brescia (in the north of Italy, not far from Milan and Venice).
Our house is a rustic, big building surrounded by a big soil with a little vineyard and a vegetable garden (we are also trying to do permaculture). We have a dog, 7 chicken 8 ducks and 4 sheep that need care. We need somebody that can help us in houseworks inside and outside.
We like to host people, we have already done that many time and every time we were pleased to discovered new worlds! Our house is always full of people from around the world.
If you like people, nature and animals contact us! we need someone from the first of March!

I am looking for a person who can prune olive and fruit trees,reorganise a terraced garden and help with restoration and maintenance,starting in March.
The villa itself is a big barn and farmhouse conversion, restored slowly and devotedly in the mountains east of Florence. It is near many famous cities, and only 20 or so mins. from the E45, the main Rimini/Rome highway.

I play flute and am learning the cello. There is always something interesting to do. The sculptor Michelangelo was born a stone's throw away and St. Francis had a retreat nearby.
I look forward to hearing from you,
Jenny.

We need help all year round. Longer stays (3 weeks or more) are preferred. We are looking for a couple of strong arms to dig a few trenches for our irrigation implant.

Fall and winter here are the most prosperous seasons of the year. A great deal of fruits ripen, starting with olives in November followed by avocados, feijoas, annonas and then all the citruses (satsumas, clementines, madarins, chinottos, lemons, oranges, tangelos, citrons, pummelos, grapefruits) but also pomegranates, guavas, hovenias, medlars, etc., etc. Some of them need to be picked almost every day throughout the season. This is the time when most plants embark in their slumber and thus the best time to prune.

Hi, my name is Guido and with my parents, sister and grandma we live in a nice, chaotic country house in the middle of a 3 acre orchard in Giarre on Mount Etna’s east side - exactly in between the mountain and the sea.

My parents work for the Italian education department, my father (Tur... more inside

Our winery and trail riding stable is located in the hills of Chiana Valley near the city of Cortona. The vineyard of half a hectare and an olive grove of one hectare is all managed by the owner. All farm work is carried out with care and all by hand. It is very important for us to renounce the use of chemicals. The vegetation, the variety of trees and shrubs support the natural cycle and the protection of plants. Pruning of trees, the thinning of the vines, the harvest of grapes and olives is done without mechanical assistance. Picked by hand the fruits arrive without damage of processing.
Our horses are experienced trail horses and we offer our guests different riding programs and trails rides.
Our team:
Michaela, originally from Germany, trail riding guide and horseman trainer.
My partner Vasco, who was born here in Tuscany and lived here ever since, is the master of the vineyard and vegetable garden and a great cook.
And of course-our horses, dogs, cats and chicken.
