    Description

    We need help as from mid March with the garden, mainly cutting grass and some weeding. Some light DIY getting the garden and house ready for the season

    Hello,

    We are Francesco and Robert, a gay couple, living in a rural part of central Italy willing to have volunteers helping with various outside duties. You need to be strong,very open minded and friendly....


    We live in a semi restored farmhouse about 5 km from the historic town of Tolentino between the mountains and the Adriatic coast line.
    The many footpaths leading through woods, fields and rivers covering the mountains makes it a pleasure to explore the environment.
    Being so submersed in wilderness away from civilization, it very much creates a feeling of retreat or escape from day to day ´normal´ life.


    We like living in the countryside and share our way of life with others.
    The restored part of the farmhouse has all the comforts of a modern place yet set in beautiful rolling hills landscape.
    We enjoy cooking, outdoors sports and socializing with friends.
    we have two cats and two lovely dogs.
    I enjoy cooking and try different recipes every time !!


    The tasks that we will be doing together may consist of the following....

    Olive pruning / picking,( when in season ) gardening, landscaping, manual labour, house renovation, clearing brambles, chopping / cutting firewood, ground clearance and site preparation.

    Helping us is very relaxed and informal.

    Plenty of good genuine Italian food on offer !

    Help

    We would like to host outgoing people who would want to visit a new part of this beautiful country, learning about olive pruning giving us a hand with the trees, gardening works and land preparation for future building projects.

    The ideal combination would be to have a great chance to meet new people and learn from each others experience ....
    Ideally you would need your own car as we live in the countryside but would also consider people without one.

    Places to visit on your time off....
    There's an abundace of places to visit, from picturesque hill top medieval towns to lovely unspoiled beaches 25 minutes away by car . The Conero Riviera its only 1 hr away from us, its called the pearl of the Adriatic for its pebble beaches and crystal clear waters and upmarket seaside towns...
    The Sibillini mountains are very close too, about 40 minutes away. A fantastic place for long walks, exploring lakes and mountains plateaus which are covered with wild spring flowers from May till July.

    The nearest shop is about 20 minutes walk from the house but to reach the nearest town which is 6 km away you would need a car or otherwise we are more than happy to drop you off and pick you up from the town centre etc.


    At times one can feel quite isolated up here so it's a great place for anyone interested in meditation or self exploration etc. Or if not, it's simply a great place to enjoy the peace and to explore the nature. Fantastic for walkers.
