Would you enjoy a change of scenery this winter, in a beautiful conservation area 700m. high in the Tuscan Apennines? I am looking for a self-motivated person with references to help in the house and garden.
My name is Jenny. I am an elderly English woman who trained as a sculptor many years ago, fell in love with the Tuscan countryside and bought some farm buildings to convert. The result is that after 30 years I have a very large house and garden and need the help of someone who can do repairs and maintenance as well as working on new projects.
Contained in the house is spacious apartment I rent for holidays. www.villasimonicchi.com
My mother was my close companion for 20 years but my children and grandchildren are all in England. Now I live alone I really enjoy the camaraderie and sense of involvement that my Helpers bring.
The house is big and ideal for a helper with a computer-based business or a project that needs peace and inspiring surroundings. Looking through the helper list I see a number of people with great references who would instantly feel at home.
