  • Beschreibung


    Our place is a big house with 20 ha of land in the hills behind the town of Cortona in southern Tuscany. We are a German/English couple and have owned the house for 40 years. Last spring we have built a new pool and we could do with the help of one or two practical guys with a bit of muscle who would enjoy helping to finish the area around the pool. There are banks to be planted, a small area to be concreted and steps to the vegetable garden, fire wood to be stacked and the vegetable garden to be cleared and dug over.
    John is very practical and has a lot of skills in building, carpentry, plumbing, gardening. He used to be a model maker and Sabine a language teacher. We both love to have people around and had many very good experiences with helpers from all over the world. We can host people from November 19 to Dec 14 for a stay of 2 to 3 weeks.

    Cortona is on the main train line from Florence to Rome and near to many interesting cities and sights, such as Montepulciano, Arezzo, Siena, Perugia, Lake Trasimeno. There is a school bus to Cortona that stops right by our house. There is good hiking on old roman roads right from the house and everywhere in the area.
