Small farm with B&B in Montelparo
Help is needed all year with general gardening, strimming, weeding as well as general repairs to buildings etc.
During October help is required preparing for the olive harvest.
We have 4 dogs and a cat which are all very friendly, however there are usually several puppies here too as we foster them from a local kennel until they find loving new homes. Dog walkers are always welcome!

Thanks for helping me to improve my English and for the nice chats and great meals and moments we shared.
The place is very nice and it was a pleasure to spend a few days with you and your friends who are also my friends now.
She is a very outgoing person and a joy to work along side and to have met. Jasmine got along well with all members of our family young and older! As well as our many various animals and pets.
We will miss her a great deal
