I have a 400 year old farmhouse in italy that needs some attention and in spring/summer 2020 we will start a garden. i am a cook by profession. i've have had great experiences with workawayers and othe platforms here in italy and at a farm i had in michigan 5 years ago. i've also met many other friends through the workaway program at my friend martin's house in lazio. I would like a couple or friends to share the second bedroom and one bathroom place for a week or two at a time which usually gets extended to longer. there is also another 2 bedroom flat in the small town just 7 minutes away which is the house of my girlfriend so we can have several workawayers and all sit together at the big table outside for meals together. the house sits on the border of umbria and tuscany close to anghairi. The house is simply furnished but recently upgraded befitting an old farmhouse with all modern conveniences, it is not fancy but comfortable and cozy with beautiful surroundings, peace and quiet. There are two large bedrooms with queen-sized beds and is equipped with anything needed to live and be self sufficient. there is internet, cable TV, central heat and a wood burning fireplace.
The house sits on seven acres of land with fruit trees and has a beautiful view of the medieval town of Lippiano (a town of only about 150 inhabitants) untouched by tourism, has remained unchanged and consists of only a post office and the town bar) with its castle and churches and the people could not be nicer. It is near all of the important historical cities while remaining off the beaten path. "Chiarella" is isolated but Monterchi is only five minutes away and where there are a stores, restaurants, banks, bars and the best pizza in the world every sunday night.
For days off Arezzo, which is 20 minutes away has trains to just about anywhere in Italy from Florence, Cortona, Siena and Assisi. Rome is approximately 2 hours on the fast train
