I am a professional English Teacher/Examiner and Language Consultant, specialised in preparing clients for international conferences, public speaking events etc., or international exams. I help clients particularly with Speaking: Pronunciation and Writing in English. I offer as part of exchanges, my professional expertise.
OUR PLACE: a restored farmhouse with a large garden in a stunning (pre)alpine setting in the far north-east of Italy... an ideal location with easy access to mountain sports: downhill, alpine and cross country skiing, open-air ice-skating, sauna health and wellness, contemplation, hiking, slope style/downhill/mountainbiking, road cycling and we are also near many excellent rivers for kayaking and fishing, as well as being close to the upper Adriatic for great sailing (we do not provide a boat).yet.
- Carpentery and fencing
- garden maintenance and preparing raised organic vegetable garden possibly with hot composting
So we look forward to welcoming those who can undertake small handyperson tasks, i.e. carpentry, even minor electrical/plumbing etc
WISHFUL THINKING project
We are keen to host helpers - who could help us to sell our house - even internationally - using online platforms, because we are not terribly savvy in that area.
We are really super interested in hearing from people who feel they can contribute to helping us achieve these aims, through, for example skills and knowledge of woodwork or organic gardening or who have knowledge of fruit trees etc.
Our experiences have been fantastic fun and very successful. We are extremely grateful for the help that we have received and really love having guests, taking them around to see the sights, and really do go out of our way to make sure they enjoy their stay.
We have a lot of requests and prefer helpers who provide REFERENCES.
We are happy to accommodate groups of two or three, and it's our experience that the more helpers, the merrier the stay.
If you have your own transport, it's easier to visit any of the off-the-beaten-track places we are able to send you!
However if you don't have your own transport it isn't a problem, see below: GETTING AROUND
In exchange, for travellers/visitors/helpers we offer some of the following:
- local on-the-ground knowledge of Slovenia, Friuli and other parts of Italy
- accompanying/organisation of small groups or individuals on tailored tours i.e. cycling, river and water sports, historical, culinary and wine-tasting, wellness (sauna, natural therapies)
WE CAN ALSO ORGANISE:
-participation in local agricultural production and activity from wine-making and tasting to pig-slaughtering and sausage-making depending on time of year
- cooking lessons with local and foraged produce, (can also arrange pasta-making sessions)
N:B: we speak Australian English at home, but we also speak Italian.
YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE pleasant and very comfortable accommodation here and I can cook to suit most dietary requirements and preferences.
The local bus from Udine drops you right outside the door, with several services each day, however the last bus from town is around 8pm.
There are a couple of bikes available - most of the time - for local visits and day trips, and there is an excellent bike hire service nearby, remember we are on the Giro d'Italia cycling route!!
ALSO INTERESTED IN TRAVEL/ HOLIDAY C0MPANIONS:
Seek above for periods of between 1-6 weeks in Europe (Turkey/Middle-east/Asia) in July/August and for short periods/three day weekend breaks in spring and autumn with like-minded individuals/couples/small groups especially those wanting practice or lessons in English language.
- can also consider taking a helper role for summer assignments of short periods of work/conversation lessons or interpreting and/or guiding/accompanying or cooking, preferably in a holiday location.

Very large, very comfortable bedrooms first floor with beautiful views, desk and sofa, and own bathroom.
There are lots of things to do in the area: the house is surrounded by grapevines and is literally on one of the most beautiful and renowned cycling paths in Europe. All around are mountains for hiking in summer, skiing in winter, Rivers for bathing and kayaking in Italy and Slovenia (less than an hour away), sea kayaking in Italy Slovenia and Croatia. The area is also famous for Prosciutto, Salami and Wine, so gastronomic delights and tours are all around us.
