    Hello Volunteers!
    Would you like to know the green heart of Italy?
    If you like outdoor life, nature and you are not scared from physical work outside…. We are looking for you!!
    We need great help for pruning and trimming in the park and in the olive groves, in the garden and in the field.
    We have an express need of help from February to April 2019.
    We can provide accommodation and food.
    Contact us, we will be glad to host you.



    Who would like to join us for the summer in this beautiful Estate???
    WE HAVE 2 OPEN POSITION FOR YOUNG MOTIVATED PEOPLE WILLING TO VOLUNTEER HELPING WITH TOURISTS from MAY to SEPTEMBER! COUPLE WOULD BE WELCOME!

    If you are searching for an intensive italian summer, meeting people, speaking the language and enjoying the landscapes, THIS IS THE RIGHT PLACE!
    From May to September we are searching for reliable volunteers – single or couple are welcome- to help our small team during the touristic season with: cleanings, service, laundry and guest assistance.
    We would prefer long-staying volunteers (i.e. minimum 3 weeks!).
    REQUESTS FOR JUNE AND JULY ARE PARTICULARLY WELCOME!

    In exchange of your hard work and cooperation we will provide food and accommodation in one or two rooms in the villa mezzanine floor!

    In your free time you’ll be plenty of unique places to visit in the surroundings:
    Spoleto, Trevi, Montefalco ( and its wine tasting tours!), Assisi, Spello,Perugia (They can be easily reached by train), and the Trasimeno lake, really deserve to be seen! Or, if you prefer, you can just walk around, enjoying the landscapes and the relax of a summer in the Umbria countryside!

    Come and join us, to have a great time together in the Umbrian countryside!!



    Our Cultural Association, a non profit organization, was set up to develop over several years a number of medium and long term programs for the upkeep, promotion and enhancement of the Villa.
    The Association's main objectives are the protection, restoration and maintenance - ordinary and extra-ordinary, of the Historical Heritage (buildings and decorations of the Villa monumental complex and the park adjacent to the complex) and of the natural environments around it.
    We maintain the huge park and all the historical organic olive groves around the Villa ( the protection of the landscape and the historic and artistic merit of the Villa complex and the park have been officially recognized by the National Commission for Italy's Cultural Heritage. )
    We work to recover the life of this environment and the cultural importance of this special place hoping to contribute to a general interest in the rich cultural and artistic heritage of the Umbria Region.

    The park and the olive grove are our main consitent commitment.
    We need great help in the park from the second half of September to end of November and in Spring - from March to June. In the summertime we may need help in tourism hospitality.
    We have many many different duties and projects we could need help, but often short period help makes it quite difficult to share delicate issues. That's the reason why 3 WEEKS is the minimum stay that we can accept.
    VERY IMPORTANT FOR US, very useful and very ENJOYABLE FOR THE VOLUNTEERS is the OLIVE HARVEST in the organic fields around the park - from the end of october to the end of November .We welcome groups in a very nice country farm within the estate , we provide great Italian lunches and nice environment for a special working vacation FROM THE END OF OCTOBER TO THE END OF NOVEMBER. In the summertime , when the agricultural side is not too workable as it' s quite hot, we need help in the kitchen and with the services for the tourists hospitality, (cooking and taking care of the guests).
    Hope you join!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The region is beautiful. Nature and culture are the most important facilities in the area. Great food everywhere. Nice town to visit as SPOLETO, ASSISI, TREVI, MONTEFALCO,PERUGIA. We are quite close from ROME ; h1,30 by train . In the fall we have the special situation of the OLIVE HARVEST which is a nice experience to enjoy.
    We will need information about you in advance and it would be necessary an accident insurance policy for the time you will be staying. If you don't have one, we can help to set it up.
    Unless otherwise decided in particular cases, 3 WEEKS is the MINUMUM STAY that we can accept.
