  • Description


    We are a German family who has purchased a home in this beautiful location in Lake Como, Italy. The house is located on a large piece of land and covered in trees to give privacy. From the property you have views of the lake and with only a short walk you can have a picturesque overlook of Lake Como. The house is two floors with three separate units. The ground floor unit has been improved but the two upstairs units is what we need the most help with as well as some garden work around the entire estate.
    *️*️*️*️PLEASE NOTE: We have a highly energetic Belgian Malinois. She is extremely friendly but she must be introduced to you first. If you are scared of dogs please do not apply. *️*️*️*️

Outside, the garden needs to be cleaned up a bit including raking of leaves and collecting/cutting of branches. Also, we need someone who will be able to clean the house, including washing floors and windows.
