  • Description

    Description

    We live in a charming small house in the Tuscan hills between Florence and Siena. We are Belgians and Dutch but live already for 12 years in Italy.

    In April and may and in october and november we need someone to help with us in the garden. We work with tool's like a brush cutter, grass machine, electric pruning shears and a Gator (small tractor). So you really have to know or wanna learn how to use these. We have to clean and cut 100 olive trees in november and there is a lot of weed to cut in march and april. We also have to do some painting, wanna build a house for our chickens and a dry place to store our wood for the winter.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will be able to see the best parts of Italy, learn about Italy, Belgians, Dutch, Italians, Italian food, wine, olive oil and how to run a family business. But most of all you will learn about our lifestyle, our experiences and the many different things we did in life.

    Most of all you need to be a nice person with a good character, who can be discreet and has a good sense of humor.
    You have to be 'independent' and know how to keep yourself 'busy'.

    We do realize that religion can be very important for some people. We respect every persons personal believes but we also think religion should remain a 'personal' matter and should not implicate moral behavior that is contrary to the law or universal human rights. We do not allow 'fanatic religious or political people' in our lives, nore people who don't believe that all humans are equal and have the same rights.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    In your free time you can do whatever you like. You can stay at home and take a swim in the pool or watch Netflix in our TV room, make music, paint or draw, play with the dogs, go horsebackriding. Or you can take the train in our village and travel to the beach or visit Florence or Siena. Maybe sometimes we even let you use our Vespa :)

    We believe that a real 'workaway' traveller wants to see and learn things in his free time. So only work, sleep and eat with us will not do. We like you to visit things (with or without us) so you can see the area and talk with us about all the great things you saw and did.
