  • Description


    we are an Italian/Anglo family enjoying the life in the countryside but needing help with everyday chores! A painter and a retired engineer who speak English together and that would be useful to a volonteer wishing to improve their language skills as we also speak Italian. Our children are living abroad. We are planning to start a bed and breakfast activity with the possibility of bringing horses as well. We live in a paradise with glorious views over the lake and situated at 530 metres. For someone who wishes to escape the frenetic way of life and concentrate on ecology and country pursuits this is definitely the place. We are very quiet people so if you are expecting a trendy way of life this is not the area. We are not in a position to pamper our volonteers as we are getting on agewise so that must be understood from the beginning.
