LOOKING FOR HOMESITTERS IN JULY
We are a mixed expat couple (Belgian-Flemish/Uruguayan) living and working (for the UN) in Italy. We live in a beautiful, ancient stone farm outside Porchiano del Monte, a small village in the south of Umbria (Central Italy), some 80 kms north of Rome. We produce olive oil and breed horses on our 8ha certified organic farm. Our daughters are 13 and 3 years old. We have three dogs, four cats, four horses, chickens, ducks and turtles on our property.
Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
We are looking for someone who can help on the farm (cleaning stables, feeding animals, mowing, cutting wood, pruning trees, cleaning fields, painting, general maintenance of outbuildings, etc.) AND/OR play with Penelope (2y) and Emilia (12y) while Pedro is at work and Ellen is working from home. It's very important that you feel comfortable around animals. Our house is pretty isolated, so party-goers will be disappointed, but nature lovers looking for some peace and quiet in the Umbrian countryside will love it here! We can bring you to the train station on your days off, and from there you can easily reach Rome (45min), Florence (1.5h), Perugia (1h), etc.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR HOMESITTERS IN JULY. We will be on holiday from 7 to 21 July, and are looking for volunteers to take care of the house and animals in our absence (obviously, no childcare during the homesit as we will be away). We can accommodate more than one homesitter, so couples and families can apply. You would need to arrive on 1 July at the latest, to learn how to do the work in and around the house.
Dutch, Spanish, French, English, German and Italian.
You will have your own caravan with sitting room, small bathroom, kitchenette, and double bed, situated next to the main house.
