    Description

    I live in the beautiful Chianti area, in Tuscany - Italy. I have a big property with 8 acres of land with lots of olive trees. At the beginning of November we started picking up olives and it is a real pleasure to taste the new oil !!

    The property is the " Centre for Evolution of Consciousness" based on two principles: Reciprocity and Collaboration.
    There is a yoga / meditation room where we run retreats and workshops during spring, summer and autumn. The Covid 19 isn't much of a problem here as the workaway quaters is separated with an independent entrance. The first week or so it is good to keep distances also in my kitchen were we usually eat.

    At the moment I'd love to attract someone (or a couple) experienced in outdoor plants, with a green finger ( as we say).
    The plants I have are as following: camellia - bougainvillea - roses - wisteria - euriops - gaura - lavender - helichrysum - incense - aquilegia - phylos - weigela - liriope muscolari - jasmine plants - bignonia - american vines.
    They need to be trimmed and taken care of and fertilized.
    I have also general maintenance to be looked after so I'm looking for somebody who is good at a verity of outdoor tasks such as repairing liking roof of a pergola, sanding metal fence and varnish- electrical - simple plumbing jobs.


    Regarding accommodation, there is a sweet wooden house with kitchen/living room , bedroom with bathroom that can host up to a couple guest.
    The view from the property is really stunning!!! It gives you a sense of openness, freedom, silence and possibilities ! It is only 2.5kms from the little town of San Casciano Val di Pesa - Florence. It takes 30mins to walk. San Casciano is very alive place with and interesting evening program during the summer: cinema in the open, theater and festivals.
    I'm working out to provide free access to Internet !!!

    Accommodation

    Regarding accommodation, there is a room + a living room with bathroom in the stone house to host the guests. The bed can be a kingsize or 2 singles. The heating is floor system and electric so I'm asking to switch it on only in the evenings. (it costs a lot!)
    The view from the property is really stunning!!! It gives you a sense of openness, freedom and possibilities ! It is only 2.5kms from the little town of San Casciano Val di Pesa - Florence. It takes 30mins to walk.In the big stone house there is a independent room with private bathroom.
    In relation to the Covid we can easily keep the distances and not risk.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    With your time off and Covid permitted, you can get to Florence in 30mins bus and enjoy cultural/arts visits. Siena in 1 Hr. Pisa 1.30 HR.
    So much to do around here, walking, cycling, air-ballooning, horses, swimming in the local swimming-pool.
    Have a look and let me know what do you think about it.
    Be happy
