We live in Motrone a hilltop ancient village in Tuscany it is 8km away (thank goodness) from Civilisation.

Starting and finishing times depending on the seasons, planting and harvesting

We provide a free bicycle

For days off we like folk to see the area and they can leave 7:30am on the bus and arrive back Sunday evening and I pick them up from the Railway station, we are a base for visits all over Tuscany, and with Pisa Airport and low airfares all over Europe.

The help at the moment is watering, weeding,mulching and fertilising and replanting and cutting firewood

We are really looking for those with Building and mechanical experience or those who are used to manual work especially with farm experience.

The help requires someone who is reasonably fit and highly motivated and prepared to learn skills.

We have a very busy and successful online property hosting programme which takes priority and you can expect to get involved helping out...

We provide good accomodation sometimes we give you the food and you cook it for yourself ....very good WIFI

We have a farm of 18 hectare which we are redeveloping a old vineyard and orchards, and bringing in organic vegetable gardens on a permaculture basis ..we are also growing edable mushrooms.

We will show you how to make wine and cheeses in season.

This year we have had great success in cultivating mushrooms alongside our vegatables and using them in conjunction with our chickens geese and sheep

The house is nestled in a small hilltop Tuscan village.
Enjoy walks in the forest and the peaceful ambience of a small agricultural village steeped in history, whilst only a short drive from Borgo a Mozzano, Bagni di Lucca, Lucca and Barga.

House rules are simple courtesy and respect your hosts and the adjoining neighbours.

The water is from a mountain spring and is delicious!

We prefer long term commitment for those who prove to be suitable.

We look forward to your enquiry, especially those with skills
