  • Description

    Description

    There's just my husband John and myself. We're not young, but also we're not elderly! John used to work here in Puglia as an electrician and I teach English to Italians.
    Our very private, countryside villa is in the heart of Puglia, Italy, but it's also within 5 Km of 4 reasonably sized towns and 25 Km from Brindisi and its airport, which is served by Ryanair, Alitalia and other airlines. Bari airport is an hour's drive north.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Fluent English and reasonable Italian and French spoken. Puglia is still an under developed part of Italy with a predominately agricultural economy mainly olive and some wines. You will probably drive a tractor and use other garden mechanical tools.

    We are looking for couples (non-smoking). We have a tractor, rotovator, strimmer and mower.

    Most of the work will be in the garden and on the land. Some minor building work.
    There are 2 bikes available for use, but use of your own transport would be a benefit as there are plenty of places to visit in the area.
    We have 2 dogs a Marimanno and the other a Siberian Husky. We have one house cat.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Ostuni, Carovigno, Lecce, San Vito dei Normanni, Cisternino and Martina Franca all have beautiful old centres. Further south is Otranto, a lovely, historical coast town and Matera, the Sassi town. The beaches here are mostly unspoilt and un-colonised out of season. We have normally a very mild temperature. However local transport is limited to trains and there are no buses on our particular road.
