  • Description

    Description

    We are a Kiwi family with 3 teenage kids, 2 dogs, 3 cats.... We moved to Northern Tuscany 10 years ago and are still working on a big refurbishment project. We live on the premises and have all mod cons - just not particularly refined! Our house is 800 metres up in the foothills of the Apennine Mountains with stunning views. We are looking for couples to work with us - need help chopping wood, stacking wood as well as heavy duty gardening and yard clearing! We also really value carpentry and building skills! Sorry but we can't help those trying to get Italian citizenship .....
