I'm a 22-year-old guy who runs a nice farmhouse in Tuscany, near Montepulciano, with my family and staff.
The farmhouse, located in a beautiful position, on a hill of the Tuscan countryside, surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, sunflower fields, and lakes, is one of the most famous in the area.
We produce DOC red wine, extra virgin olive oil, and honey, which will be ready for shipments in September.
The farmhouse is located near UNESCO heritage sites (Montepulciano, Val d'Orcia, Assisi, Siena) and many other famous cities and countries (Florence, Pienza, Montalcino, Perugia, Cortona, Città della Pieve, Rome, Castiglione del Lago, Orvieto).
We host people from all over the world (United States, China, Canada, Germany, Holland, Denmark, France, Switzerland, Spain, Austria ...) and we get easily fully booked since we open (April 3d) when we close (October 30th).
This year we have a lot of new projects to develop. For this reason, we are looking for a person who can help us with guests, wine, garden care, apartment cleaning, and PHOTOGRAPHY.
I believe that having different points of view from people around the world is one of the most important things for a business.
We are searching for a Workayer but mostly for a loyal and respectful friend, a new foreign member of our family!
