    1 April - 31 October 2020 - NEEDED COUPLE with Driving Licence - MINIMUN 1 MONTH

    I am Marusca (Part Time Sales Department Employee) and with my husband Gianni (Enterprenur of a Web Company) I manage a beautiful Holiday House in Santa Maria in Valle - Laterina - Tuscany - Italy. It is a wonderful Villa with 4 apartments and 1 depandance (a stone house). We have guests all over the world from USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, France, UK, Holland, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden...

    The Holiday House is located in the beautiful Tuscany, 2 km from the center of the village of Laterina, then connected by bus to Arezzo. So without a car, logistics could be not so easy.

    We are an authentic Tuscan family and you could know our culture and our traditions.

    We are looking forward to finding a really nice, friendly and polite (boy or girl or a couple.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ support during the morning for the guests, if they need
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ water the garden grass
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ taking care of the swimming pool (maintaining of water and cleaning with Robot)
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ manage the separate collection of waste
    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Website management (do you have a laptop?)

    *️️️️️️️️️️ Grass cutting (one or twice per week depending on need)
    *️️️️️️️️️️ check-in and check-out of the guests as a function of the arrivals/departure (cleaning of the apartments is done by a cooperative so no needs for this, it is just the checking of the apartments at the end of the cleaning and welcome of the guests with a beautiful smile :) !!)

    We can start building a "compost" center to recover organic waste to be used as fertilizer

    Principally we also want you to have fun and to experience the authentic Tuscany !

    The help is required principally in the morning (typical working time is from 7/7.30 to 12 for cleaning the pool and watering the grass which should be done early in the morning). and during the afternoon only in case there are check-out/check-in.

    On Sunday (which will be a free day) and during the afternoons where there no check-out/check-in are foreseen, you can enjoy the beautiful villa with a huge swimming pool or take tours to Arezzo and Tuscany.

    Workawayers will mainly help us to work in our beautiful Holiday House at the same time speak with our guests in English, French, German or Spanish (if you like to spent time with them you are welcome !)
    In case you come as a couple, we may request you some additional help for the house (i.e. small maintenance works).

    The bus is about 3 km, if you want to be independent we recommend the car
