We are a family of five that recently renovated our families' 17 C farmhouse. We have our home, the children, the fruit and olive orchards, lavender field, garden plots and grazing land for our 3 horses and 3 sheep to look after. It's a big job! I am looking for a positive, energetic, responsible person to assist us with any of our many outdoor or indoor projects! What are your talents? I'm sure we can use them!

I request approximately 25-30 hrs per week and you can organise that how you wish. The rest of your time is yours to spend how you wish and we are happy to take you down to the train station on your days/hours off so you can explore the region.

We are an Italian-American family, English-Italian speaking in the home, friendly, open-minded, hard working, well traveled and interested in different cultures. We will be delighted to share our Italian and American cultures with you. We will also respect your space if desired. Our interest include travel, sport, Yoga, living sustainably and consciously, good people and good food! We are interested in the cultural exchange aspect too.

We are a 50-minute train ride from Florence and live in the Mugello Valley, rich in art, food, wine making. There are a multitude of biking, hiking or running trails with stupendous views right outside our gate. Night life not so happening though and it is family living.

Please contact us to discuss further details and please include your experience with any of these skills; yard/home maintenance, gardening, painting, homemaking...and what passions you may be able to share with us otherwise, like a passion for guitar or drawing or animals or storytelling, or card playing, ect. Also let us know if you have a driver's license.

You can watch the YouTube link above to see the beauty of our property!

Thank you. We look forward to hearing from you!!
