28th November to 22 December 2019: Help needed to work in forest camping area raking leaves, creating paths, building cob wall, making earthen floor for converted hay barn, building kitchen welcoming airbnb guests, and full restoration of seventeenth century hay barn in the forest.

We work from 8am to 12pm each morning in a stressfree environment, the rest of the time is yours to enjoy the mountains, scenery, walking & nearby villages. Artists, carpenters, engineers, and visionaries particularly welcome to develop this wild woodland into a cool living space MUSICIANS of course always popular we sing many evenings late into the night and turn up at local festivals to busk etc.

Accommodation is very comfortable usually in a twin room, in our own home which is finished to a high standard. All meals included. When house is rented we all move down to the yurt & camping area - also very comfortable. We are located in a small hamlet overlooking Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, one hour north of Lucca, in the Appenine Mountains with fabulous views of the Apuan Alps. We are fifteen minutes from Castelnuovo the nearest train station, and 1.5 hours from Pisa Airport. The location is very rural, although the villages of Chiozza (15 mins), Castiglione (30 mins) and even Castelnuovo (1 hour) are reachable on foot.
