    Hello workawayers,

    We are a young couple, Marina (30) and Nicola (30). We moved last year in an old house in the countryside of Marche along with a small crew of pets and big hopes.

    Currently we have one dog, four cats, one rabbit, one turtle, two parrots and four chickens (making delicious eggs). We are also growing some vegetables in the garden and have a small plantation of olive trees and fruit trees. We would like to expand the farm, have other animals and maybe grow other crops in our garden (1.5 hectares).

    Our house sits 30 minutes walk from the town centre of Loro Piceno. Our lovely village of 2,000 people has an old castle, small shops and family-owned cellars. Vino Cotto, a type of fortified wine is the most famous product of our village and almost every house has its own tiny cellar (we also have a small one).

    Macerata, the main town of 40,000 inhabitants, is 25 minutes drive and can be reached with public buses.
    In 30-40 minutes drive, you can also reach the beaches on the Adriatic sea or (in the other direction) visit the National Park of Sibillini mountains.
    On your free time, you can also visit other medieval villages nearby, which are all characterized by their picturesque centres, stunning views and delicious traditional foods.

    We choose Workaway because it is an opportunity to meet and get to know other people which is the best way to learn new habits, lifestyles and cultures.

    We are looking forward to meet you.

  • Arbeit


    Nicola's parents, that live nearby, give a big hand with the gardening and taking care of pets but, as they both retired, at times they like to enjoy their free time elsewhere and this is where we need most help (we both have full time jobs).

    Types of work we need help with include:
    - Daily care of the animals and sometimes cleaning their "rooms".
    - Some work in the vegetable garden (weeding, harvesting, planting, watering)
    - General maintenance around and inside the house.

    If you fancy so, you can dare to teach some English to Nicola's parents when they are around (they are very friendly and open-minded but barely speak any word) :D
