    WE HAVE ALL THE HELP WE NEED FOR THIS YEAR. WE WILL NEED HELP IN THE SPRING NEXT YEAR SO GET IN TOUCH FROM FEBRUARY ONWARDS!

    We have a small, family run business based at a 300year old Tuscan farmhouse. There are 3 self-catering apartments which are rented through the season, and we also run workshops in Pilates, yoga and photography. We harvest the ancient olive trees here by hand to produce extra virgin olive oil. The business is run by me, my partner and his parents (who live at the farmhouse). We have 2 small children, aged 6 and 4.

    We need someone to help us in a few ways - some childcare, especially during the summer holidays when our kids are home from school; and clearing up afterwards during the workshop weeks; some preparation of the apartments on really busy changeover days; some help in the garden and olive grove.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in the countryside near a very small village, there are many local festivals through the year both in our village and those nearby. There is the opportunity to meet a huge variety of people throughout the year, both locals and guests. Our apartment is part of an old farm, we have one neighbour upstairs. Next door is the old stone farmhouse, owned by friends of ours who also have small children. There is the opportunity to help with the grape harvest for local producers, our olive harvest and there are many things to see and do in the area - the mountains, the sea, etruscan ruins. We are situated an hour south of Siena and 2 hours from Florence and Rome.
