    Hi! We are an English family (with three teens) living in a medieval village in the Tuscan mountains, 10km from the nearest town (Bagni di Lucca). We bought an old house in the village 11 years ago and have spent that time slowly refurbishing it, whilst enjoying the slow pace of life here (and the wonderful food and wine!)

    We've always had very good experiences with Workawayers in the past, and feel that we offer a home-away-from-home here. We are a very laid back family, who eat, laugh and enjoy life together, and believe that it's always good to meet new people and have new experiences.

    We're looking for some short-term help to get our house ready for renting/living in the Summer. We have a 3 bedroom house where we usually live, which needs a little spruce to get it ready for guests arriving in June (mainly painting and steam-cleaning/sealing the cotto floor). We have a large hall downstairs which needs some plastering work, painting and cleaning.

    We also need some work doing in the garden (weeding, potting-up, general maintenance and possibly preparation of a vegetabel patch), and it would be a treat to have someone else cook a meal or two for a change!

    We would need our workawayer(s) to be confident with dogs, as we have a 7 month old male Presa Canario/Dogue de Bordeaux cross called Norman and a 5 month old female Cane Corso called Iggy, who we'd like you to feel confident walking and playing with. We also have a 9 year old female Bulldog (Doris), but she sleeps most of the time :)

  • Unterkunft


    We have a self-contained bedroom with en-suite shower room on the mezzanine level of our house. You'll have your own entrance and complete privacy when you want it. But we would of course love for you to spend as much time with us as a family as you like!

    There are about 80 people in our village and we are a 15 minute drive to the nearest town, so this isn't a post for someone looking for crazy entertainment! The area is great for walking, with some breathtaking views, and perfect for a 'time out'. The beautiful walled city of Lucca is 40 minutes away and Florence around 90 minutes away, both of which can be reached by train from our local town of Bagni di Lucca (if you don't have a car). We have a fabulous restaurant in our village (the Buca di Baldabo) and there is a real community feel here.
