We are a young English couple who moved to Italy from London last July and are renovating an Italian villa in Le Marche in the middle of Italy 45 minutes in from the Adriatic coast at the base of the Sibillini mountains and on the edge of the Monti Sibillini national park. Our nearest Airports are Ancona and Pescara approx 1 hour 20 minutes to each . Quiet roads will lead you to unexpected places; rivers, lakes, the unmistakable Sibillini mountains, historic towns, small villages with colorful markets and, a range of festivals and events. The Villa is quite remote and is 10 minutes from each of the two nearest towns.

Local facilities:
Skiing (in season),fishing, walking, cycling, castles, Kiaking (in season), horse riding,local festivals and restaurants.

within easy 45 minutes:
Vineyard's, under ground caves, Ascoli Piceno a beautiful old Italian city with nightlife markets great shops and much more.

Why are we doing ths:

We are restoring and converting the house into a retreat which will be offering courses in: Martial arts, Spiritual Philosiphy, Photography, alternative medicine and much more.

We offer free accommodation in finished rooms and food included. in return for working 6hrs per day, 5 days a week. and hopfully some fun and laughs.

We are looking for people with a good sense of humor a sprinkling of common sense and a relaxed creative personality. After a tricky year for my business in the Uk we have gone from a team of builders to just ourselves and lots of help from friends flying over and staying when possible.

current projects:
Building the Dojo for Martial arts (a sprung floor etc), establishing an organic/permacultre vegetable garden, finishing our outdoor kitchen and pizza oven.

Examples of work:

Landscaping, gardening,plaster boarding, plastering, cement mixing and general renovation,
painting, electrics and joinery no experience is necessary but would be a great asset to the team.

we offer stays of one, two, three or four weeks (longer stays may be possible and possible work at the retreat after compleation, ideas creativity are allways welcome, contact us to discuss)
we are now taking bookings for this year (2010) so book your place early, especially for June/July/august
for more details or a curious chat email us we would love to hear from you !

Thanks for looking :-)
