    Description

    Winter months are slow in the countryside.

    Will be looking for late Spring workawayers.

    1) OLIVE TREE work
    2) Garden plant trimming
    3) Animal care -4 great Border Collies that love to play ball.... 2 easy going cats.
    4) Small vineyard winter trimming and tying.

    Having your own car for personal freedom is necessary.

    Tuscan Country home, on edge of a village, needs extra hands with some cure and maintenance (ordinary and extraordinary). Large Villa style farmhouse with 4 hectares of terrain, olive grove, 3 dogs and a cat. Or better said a farmhouse in the Villa style. 15 kilometers from Siena. Twice a day (mornings) local access by public transportation. Otherwise programmable bus access drop off and pick up 4 km away at the nearby town.

    It's a family home but most of the family isn't around anymore so it has become a one man show where the only inhabitant works a day job, has hobbies, loves to socialize and yet takes care of the whole property on their own. There are some extra-ordinary simple maintenance tasks that need to be done and an extra pair of hands would be nice to have around. Company is always nice to have.

    I offer HOUSING for 3 hours of day work. We MAY interact and we do need to coordinate dinners. (I have long days and hours).
