We have been hosting via workaway since 2017, it is a happy experience and we have met people of all ages and from all over the world.
I INVITE YOU TO CAREFULLY READ MY PROFILE, THE KIND OF HELP REQUESTED, THE CONDITIONS.
We welcome enthusiastic, positive, honest, tidy, clean, polite volunteers who have experience in manual work, gardening and want to clean the house carefully. We don't like lazy, messy, dirty people who don't follow the rules; we have verified that our relationship with them can't work and we don't want tense situations, reproaches because we want to live in a harmonious, aware, respectful way of privacy. I want this to be clear to avoid unnecessary travel, wasted time and unpleasant situations.
We are very busy in our work and we cannot always be present so we appreciate people who know how to work independently and responsibly and are independent for food: I give them a weekly sum to buy it.
My family: my name is Cecilia, I'm a freelancer my husband is a teacher, we have two children who help us in this project.
We live in two historic houses of great charm, both dating back to the 1700s. THE GARDEN IS VERY LARGE, YOU CAN LIVE IN THE NATURE AND BE CLOSE TO THE CITY (500 METERS)
Our project: is to complete the renovation of the house, daily cleaning, do major house cleaning, restore furniture, move furniture, tidy up the gardens, cut weeds, make fences, cut branches.
Sorry, we cannot accommodate families, we cannot accommodate people with addiction issues.
IMPORTANT: WE ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR CITIZENSHIP, VISA etc.
my level of English is basic, despite this we understood each other with the helpers who only spoke this language
Heimwerker- und Bauarbeiten
We live in a historic house where important local sculptors lived in the 18th century. the villa is surrounded by a large expanse of land with olive trees and other trees. roe deer, foxes and eagles often come to visit us. In the garden you can run, walk, play sports, yoga or meditation and there are benches where you can read or rest.
The place is very quiet, it is located between Liguria and Tuscany so you can easily visit the tourist resorts of Tuscany such as Pisa, Lucca, Florence, Siena and Liguria such as the Gulf of Poets, the Cinque Terre, Genoa.
Near the house there is a bus station and the train station is 4 km away.
We have mountains where you can hike for all levels.
In 5 minutes on foot you can reach the city center, where there are monuments, the Academy of Fine Arts, the swimming pool and gyms. The sea and the beach are only 7 km away.
I have posted photos of what you can find around and will be very happy to give you information on other places to see.
I can help you in Italian by making conversation and answering your questions. we can organize walks to chat. I can teach you some dishes of Italian cuisine (bolognese sauce, but also dishes with pasta and vegetables if you are vegetarian).
At home you can consult a large library of books in Italian and many books talk about painting and sculpture and have many images. if you like I can tell you the history of these places.
if you love large spaces inside and outside the home you will love this
Depending on the time of year there are many gardening jobs that may be suitable for people with previous experience: weeding, hedge trimming, sapling and shrub pruning, wood cutting, hedge repair, tillage.
At home we need all kinds of general maintenance, furniture removals, daily and extraordinary cleaning, furniture care and some minor restoration.
right now it would be great to have someone who knows how to prune olive trees, an apple tree and a pear tree!
Those who know how to work independently are highly appreciated
People generally work 4/5 hours a day from Monday to Friday.
When you are not working you are completely free to do as you please and have plenty of time to relax and explore the area.
DIGITAL NOMADS are welcome and we have already successfully hosted them.
THERE WILL BE A WEEKLY TESTING PERIOD TO SEE IF THINGS WORK
The bedroom is private. the bathroom and kitchen are shared.
In one of the apartments where you will have your room and the shared spaces (in Toscana) also live the students, our tenants, who come from all over the world to study at the Academy of Fine Arts.
it is possible that during your stay we will also move to another house in Liguria, where you will always have your private room.
VERY IMPORTANT: the helper must keep their spaces clean and tidy
you will cook your meals independently, I have experienced that this makes you freer in your times and needs (vegans, vegetarians, etc.). we agree on a weekly sum for the purchase of your food independently. if you are a good cook and cook for everyone with what you find at home we love you very much
Every now and then we organize a dinner together
COME with proper work clothing (closed shoes, long pants etc, please ... and remember that everyone's priority is always to work safely (we will provide goggles, gloves, ear protection etc).
You need to have an E111 or you own medical/travel insurance. You are responsible for and of your own health care costs. I will ask for copy of your Passport and I.D. etc.
Part of the work is pretty physical and requires resistance, so keep in mind that we are counting on your physical health.
We are very relaxed at home, but we want respect for our home and our properties
I like to keep my privacy and I will respect yours too.
