Hi, we are a couple of 50 move to the countryland from the town of Florence in 2009 ago.
Mugello is a rural area close to the town of Florence, in our little farm we have olive trees for oil, vegetables and flowers garden and it is 4km far from Vicchio, the next village. Landscapes here are really nice and many renaissance painters was coming from this lands. Two horses, three cats, some chickens and a dog, is the team. We like exchange languages and culture, we like cook and taste also foreign food. We don't smoke and prefer no smoker.
We accept request only from one volunteer.
Help in the house
We need help in the garden and with horses stable, in detail: in the morning cleaning the stable, feeding horses, weeding in the garden, it will depend by the weather, soil around olive trees should be well dug and manured, painting wood stable, fence and gates, also indoor we need help for cleaning and maintenance, what we expect from a workawayer is an help in our routine day, we are interested in people with passion and proved experience in govern of horses .
Our activity here is not a business, and in general engagement is not so heavy, but we love our garden and animals, and we do our best to take care of them with pleasure, time and patience. So we expect the same from volunteers.
Worktime is flexibile, from four hours to five in a day, depend, but sure you can take time for you to visit places around.
Accomodation provided is in a nice caravan, it is close to the house and vegetable garden, it is confortable and indipendent, shower and services are inside the house. We like share meals together.
Our place is about 40km from Florence town, it can be reached by train in 1 hour, the house is 4km far from the train station and the nearest village is Vicchio. Nature land and landscapes around are great for running and hiking, take pictures or painting. Two horses, three cats, some chickens, and a dog are all the animals that live with us.
