Last Updated: June 18, 2019

Between April and July the jobs are mostly gardening,upkeeping the house(painting,etc..), the road and possibly also helping with olive trees pruning.
We can host 2 helpers, possibly couple or friends as they have to share a room, the minimum stay is two weeks.

The farm is not certified as organic, but we use no chemicals.
The most important thing of the farm is the farmhouse consisting of a 14th century tower and 17th century expansion. It is a National Monument but we have just finished restructuring it and it has all the modern conforts.
It is 25km from Florence and has a rather good bus service from the nearby village of Santa Brigida.
The farming activity is practically only olive trees,mainly in October.


You will be able to visit Florence.
One of us will stay with you and you will have a chance to eat and,if you want, learn some Italian cooking.
