  • Description



    Would you like to stay in beautiful Tuscany? This is a farm and a holiday stay for tourists in the hills of the heart of Tuscany. I Daniela run the place with my family of four. We have hosted workawayers for more than eight years and loves to meet and greet new people.

    Depending on the seasons there will be different tasks to do but we always need help with the animals and maintenance around the place. Otherwise we have a small production of olive oil. So many different skills are welcomed and useful!

    We are sorounded by beautiful nature which gives you the opportunity to go hiking or biking or just enjoy the beaty of nature it self in your free time. But if you want to go to Florence it is only 30 mins away with the train. If you need help or advice we are there for you but you have to arange your own free time.

    We prefer that people stay more than three weeks but if it is not possible don't hasitate to contact us, maybe we can arrange things differently.

    We are looking forward to meet plenty more new interesting and different people who is ready to share and learn new cultures!

    Different skills are needed. Almost every day do we serve breakfast for 2-10 people and sometimes in the weekend a chef comes to cook a magnificent dinner for the guests where you can Learn about Tuscan food secrets.

    Volunteers who love animals will be highly appreciated! Every day we feed the animals dogs, cats, pigs, rabbits, chickens, gees, eagle, sheep and horses. They are very friendly and most of then walk around freely around us when we work.

    But all the skills you have are apreciated. We are always open for new ideas and initiatives in order to develop and make our agritourism more attractive to everybody!

    General maintenance of the house also needs to be provided like cleaning, washing, laundry. There are many flowers and some gardening and restoring to do.

    Depending on the season, you will have one or two days off. The work is not hard, it changes every day and every week. So you can learn a new things everyday. This means that we are looking for a flexible person, with a can-do attitude, if you see something around that can be done the make the place feel free to do it.

    In conclusion we are both a farm and a B&B which means we are welcoming all kind of people with all kinds of skills!
