Description

My wife is Italian and teaches at the primary school and I work in sales. We live in the countryside surrounded by Vineyards.

My wife is bi lingual and teaches both English and Italian. I understand enough Italian to get by with the aid of finger pointing and miming.

We don't go night clubbing but prefer to visit cafés and bars in the surrounding villages for coffee or aperitifs.

We will move into this house in April, if you are handy with a paint brush, mop and bucket we would love to here from you. The garden is huge so any green fingered tomato growers are also needed.
