  • Description

    Description

    I'm a 22 year old boy who runs a nice farmhouse in Tuscany, near Montepulciano, with my family and staff.

    The farmhouse, located in a beautiful position, on a hill of the Tuscan countryside, surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, sunflower fields and lakes, it's one of the most famous in the area.

    We produce DOC red wine, extra virgin olive oil and honey; from September we will start shipping.

    The farmhouse is located near UNESCO heritage sites (Montepulciano, Val d'Orcia, Assisi, Siena) and many other famous cities and countries (Florence, Pienza, Montalcino, Perugia, Cortona, Città della Pieve, Rome, Castiglione del Lago, Orvieto).

    We host people from all over the world (United States, China, Canada, Germany, Holland, Denmark, France, Switzerland, Spain, Austria ...) and we are always fully booked since we open (April 22th) when we close (October 30th).

    Because of my studies, this year I will not always be present, so I'm looking for a boy/girl who can help us with guests, wine, garden care and apartments cleaning.
