  • Description

    Description

    We are an English couple who have been living in the southern Italian countryside near Ostuni for 10 years. Jen used to work for an airline and Pete in the music industry. We are in our early 60s with 2 kids in their 30s who live in London.
    Our house and the villa next door are in 2.5 acres of land. We are easy going but hardworking and hold to the belief that if a job is worth doing it is worth doing well. We are into music, films, travel, food, cycling and outdoor life in general.
    Next looking for help in Feb., March, April and possibly May 2015 for 2 week periods and ideally a couple. The work is varied and will include some gardening, painting (not on canvas!), general maintenance, cleaning and possibly some building.
