We are an English couple who have now relocated to Italy and are just finishing off renovating an old Tuscan farmhouse.
We have a standard poodle Tess who is still a puppy
We have had multiple Workawayer's for the last three years but are now looking for couples or two friends to come and join us over the summer ( March to October )
The main tasks will be working on finishing the house, hard landscaping and looking after the vegetable garden and fruit orchards We are at the beginning of starting up a collection of antique fruit varieties and are processing storing and preserving of Italian fruit and vegetables.
We are vegan and very much into food and cooking !!
Our minimum stay is two weeks but are happy to consider longer periods This is a fantastic rustic area with wonderful culinary traditions and the locals are great .We are sure you will love it.
We work for 5 hours per day in exchange for board and lodgings.
We only cook and prepare and buy plant based food
We have an existing cottage on the land which we renovated several years ago and is our home until house is finished
You will have your own apartment with its own kitchen and bathroom and living area We have wifi and a beautiful terrace with views of Apennine and Apuane mountains .
We prefer volunteers with some building/ land/gardening skills and who are happy to get involved in this type of work. .
We are only 30 minutes from the sea and 'Cinque Terra' and it is an hour from Pisa/Lucca and two hours from Florence .We love walking and would love to show you an undiscovered part of Italy famous for food and foraging and porcini mushrooms. Come and join us on our 'great escape' in an undiscovered part of Tuscany!!
