  • Description

    Description

    We are a mixed expat couple (Ellen, 39, is Belgian-Flemish, Pedro, 55, is 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 12 and 2.5 years old. We have three dogs, four cats, four horses, chickens, ducks and turtles on our property.

    We are looking for someone who can help with the work on the farm (cleaning stables, feeding animals, mowing, cutting wood, pruning trees, cleaning fields, painting, general maintenance of outbuildings, etc.) and 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.
