  • Description


    I live in an old farmhouse set in the hills, 8kms from the small town of Umbertide in the northern part of Umbria close to Tuscany. The house and gardens are surrounded by lovely countryside perfect for walking, with wonderful views and swimming nearby.
    I teach English and I'm opening a bakery . I'm also putting finishing touches to the house and garden and I have small mill guest house to maintain so all in all quite busy and extra hands would help. Looking for helpers from March-Oct.
