We're an English family who moved to rural Puglia from London to try a different way of life. We need help in the autumn with our olive harvest and general farm and buildings maintenance, then again in the spring with general land management and buildings maintenance.
We've renovated an old farm and converted it into a self-contained holiday villa and living accommodation for us. It's set in 5 acres of land planted mainly with olive and almond trees. We have a vegetable garden and keep chickens, rabbits and sheep. We also have three dogs and three cats.
We've made a commitment to farm the land organically, as well as installing solar hot water panels, using wood in our heating system and collecting rainwater to fill our cistern.
We host couples aged 25+.
