We are a family of 5 parents and 3 Kids...nearly grown ups (Father 52, mother 47, son 27, daughter 20 and the little daughter 10) who own a little farm in Liguria in the organic Valley near Varese Ligure. The house was of our parents and we renovated mostly with our own hands. We are surrounded by nature but not too far from a little place called San Pietro Vara where you find two bars and a pizzeria. We ask for help in the garden and in the house as we all work also except our youngest daughter.
We are not far from the seaside so it is possible to reach Sestri Levante and the Cinque terre by bus.
We prefer femal volunteers because sometimes they have to share the bathroom with our girls.
