  • Description

    Description

    We are a Kiwi family with 3 teenage kids, 2 dogs, 3 cats.... We moved to Northern Tuscany 10 years ago and are still working on a big refurbishment project. We live on the premises and have all mod cons - just not particularly refined! Our house is 800 metres up in the foothills of the Apennine Mountains with stunning views. We are looking for couples to work with us - need help chopping wood, stacking wood as well as heavy duty gardening and yard clearing! We also really value carpentry and building skills! Sorry but we can't help those trying to get Italian citizenship .....

    Our house has fabulous views and is situated between two very picturesque medieval villages, one of which has a small store and bar. There are regular buses that take you down (or back up) to Bagni di Lucca and beyond. Google Bagni di Lucca (thermal town) and Lucca which is about 40 minutes away. Florence is about 80 minutes away and we have a fantastic river for swimming and fishing in, great walks, beach is about 40 mins away. You can hire quad bikes, go kayaking, mushroom picking....
