  • Description


    HOUSE SITTING for april, may, June

    My name is Viviana. I am a painter and engaged in social work overseas. I have been living most of my life in Africa, middle East and Far East. I am very interested in other cultures and I have a multicultural background in my studies and work. I have a house in Umbria since a long long time, in Monte Castello di Vibio which is my " home". So when I come back I need and enjoy to revitalize the garden and the house and enjoy the slow but busy time of nature.

    The village that is located 700 meters from the house offers music and cultural events and evening entertainment. In the proximity there is the Parco naturale del Tevere and natural, wild parks good for tracking. About transport there is a train and regional bus station at 8 Km from the house and local buses at 300 meters from the house and I myself can support with driving around.
