    Hello. I'm Marta, 30 years old right now with a daughter, Mia, 4 years old.
    With my parents we have a beautiful farm in the countryside of San Miniato, where they are actually living. ( Me and my daughter we live in San Miniato village at about 10km from the farm )
    The house is a tipical Leopoldina restored by my father. We have chicken, 2 labrador female, 2 donkeys and a huge garden with a pool.
    I'm a Montessori teacher, I have a private school in the farm for children until 6 years old.

    Spring/Summer : you supposed to help with general housekeeping, cooking, cleaning outside space for guest, help with cleaning apartment for guest, feed the donkeys and clean them, walk around with the dogs, doing something in the garden like cut the grass or plant.

    Sometimes I need some help with Mia, so maybe I can ask you to stay with her few hours or evening while I'm working, just play with her speaking english or your mother tongue.

    We are looking for someone helping us feeding the animal and helping my mother with some garden-job like plant some vegetable or looking at her flower with her. My parents both speak english not very well but they try and they are 60 and 65years old. In their home there is a bedroom with shared bathroom at your disposal, meal will be togheter, cooking and cleaning togheter.

    My parents or I can drive you to the train station in San Miniato village to reach Pisa or Florence, Siena and other beautiful city near by.
    There are no BUS running. By walk you can reach Corazzano, a small village at about 1.5 km in which you can find a small market to buy food, a post office, farmacy and bank.

    You supposed to help us 4/5 h by day, depending on the period of the year you came.

    Please apply if you are someone who is relaxed, happy, sincere, energetic, warm, enthusiastic and outgoing. You must love nature and animals and children of course!!!
