    Hello, we are looking for help picking olives as soon as possible till about the 20th of December. Thanks for enquiry :)

    Hi! We are a family who lives in the beatiful Tuscan countryside, just 10 minutes walk from the city centre of Cortona. Mum (Patrizia) is a wedding planner and Rebecca (21 years old) and Marta (27 years old) are university students and come back to Cortona during the weekend whenever possible. Rebecca was a workawayer last year in Canada and this summer in Wales and she really enjoyed her experience.

    Our house is plenty of animals: we have three dogs, one cat, some chickens, a rabbit and some small parrots. We have about 3 hectares of land with olive trees, a very very tiny lake and a stunning overview to the valley. We often enjoy amazing sunsets from our yard and we love having bbq parties with our friends.

    We are looking for someone to stay with us for about 3 weeks from mid November 2018. We're looking for an animals lover, fit enough for outdoor jobs and who enjoys being surrounded by nature. All meals will be provided; we like cooking and we would also love to taste your traditional food if you want to. In November we might have a warm and nice fall as well as some rainy days. Anyway the area is full of historical and artistic attractions as well as outdoor activities and you will not get bored here.

    We can just accomodate one guest a time.
