  • Beschreibung


    Ottavia and James (both 44) manage an English language education centre in rural Lazio. We are an easy going but busy and ordered couple with Scottish roots. There are 10 hectares of organic farmland (hazelnuts, chestnuts, fruit and veg, animals etc.) on the property and the work we need is often manual and can be tough. We are both teachers, so clear instructions will be given to assist those unfamiliar with tasks. The accommodation is in a large villa with plenty of space and most meals are cooked by Ottavia. Children may come on school trips, for activity weekends and summer camps while Workaways are here. There is always a lot to do and tons fun to be had along the way - come and join us!

    Travellers will benefit from the hosts' knowledge of Italy and the Lazio region with specific regards to places of interest, local produce and cuisine. Helpers will learn about the local culture, language, how the land is worked and also pick up useful skills in a friendly environment.

    Helpers will be required to work on various activities including pruning, fencing, harvesting nuts, weeding, cutting grass, chopping wood, feeding animals etc. On wet days workers may be asked to help with cleaning and decorating inside the villa for a maximum of 5 hours per day in exchange for full board and lodging in the villa itself. Due to the size of the property and the range of jobs which constantly need to be completed, we need quick learners who are not afraid of hard work. Skills with strimmers and chainsaws, tractor driving and gardening, animal care, fencing, painting and decorating etc. would be useful but not essential. Help will be given for all activities.

    En suite bedrooms within the villa (very comfortable). Generous meals will be shared with hosts - the standard of cookery is excellent!

    Ronciglione is close to Rome and even nearer to Viterbo (the city of Popes). The appeal of Rome is eternal but there are plenty of interesting activities closeby: walks in the hills, the lake, many picturesque villages, thermal baths, restaurants and bars, sports etc.
