Currently we are NOT looking for helpers!
We can anyhow offer a longterm job as farm manager, families welcome. We provide ONE basic sallary and free accomodation for a family. Contact us for more information.


I am Nicola owner of the farm and Veterinarian. I work half the year in Italy on horses and half in Laos on elephants. I am in Italy from March to September and in Laos during the winter months. The farm is an 85 hectares property with a stone house from the 17th century.

Located in central Tuscany at 15 km from the coast and 200 m of altitude we have very mild winters and fresh summers, due to the sea breeze.

We got work to do and we look forward to have people living with us!
By us I mean helpers, staff, my family (two nearly grown up Teenagers Nicolò and Giulia, living during the week in Florence), tourists, some cows, some horses and our dog.

From March 2014 on, we are looking for strong arms to complete our big renovation project. Meant is painting, building, constructing, etc. inside and outside. We will have a variety of interesting and special projects going on, as for example the construction of an “helpers area”, an upcoming cow project, a creative renovation of the helpers’ quarters, etc.

Next to that, we got all year round typical farm work like gardening, trimming, etc. to be done. Of course there is also some work with animals involved as daily feeding and fencing…

If you are willing to help us out on daily farm duties, with renovating or if you want to contribute with your special artistic talent to make a perfect place even more unique you are right with us. If you are searching for some hands-on work or creative artwork we are searching for you.

In exchange we can offer you good Italian food, nice and relaxed atmosphere, interesting stories to share and a perfect place to be.

We cannot host more than two volunteers at a time, except for well-defined projects in which more than two people are needed. If accommodated inside the main house the helpers should contribute in meal preparation and reordering. If separately accommodated, we are glad to provide you with basic cooking ingredients to prepare food for yourself.

We look forward to hearing from you!
