  • Description

    Description

    We are an Italian family of 4, with 2 teen agers daughters; we live between Rome and the South Tuscany Region (Maremma). Our dream has always been to have a country house in this Region, as an ideal site to meet people (various Italian/non-Italian friends and guests are popping in and out much of the time especially during the summer time) and host in a very friendly but exclusive way (very few guests a time).

    Our house style is a mixture between Tuscan tradition and modern design, located uphill, with a breathtaking view over the vineyards and the olive groves, with seaside background.
    Our infinity salted pool is the ideal summer set to relax and enjoy this still uncontaminated part of the Southern Tuscany.

    We are looking for a guy, italian and/or english speaking, for AUG-SEPT to help us in house (cleaning the house, doing breakfast, some garden work, pool cleaning etc.) and for the harvest.

    The workawayer will live in a double room with ensuite bathroom, giving him/her the opportunity to discover the area with all the historical, enogastronomic and coastal attractions and to know our local traditions living with us.

    we have an internet access, no pets, no smoking house.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Workawayers will learn about rural life in Tuscany and enjoy being part of an Italian community. They will taste good slow food and learn how to enjoy the Italian pace of life, meeting new people and make new friends. They could live in an uncontaminated natural environment, both close to the seaside (Argentario coast) and to the interior Etruscan villages and Thermal Baths (Saturnia), relax in a salted infinity pool during the summer time and their time off, explore the historical and eno-gastronomic surroundings getting to know one of the most interesting and unexplored Tuscan regions.

    You will be sleeping in a room with private bathroom with shower; meals will be arranged sometimes by us and sometimes by yourself.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    In your time off, you can visit some historical villages in South Maremma, go to the beach (the Argentario Coast is one of the most amazing ones in Tuscany), walk through the countryside and the forest; as we are in countryside, you can move by car that we can provide, as the staff car. We will take our workawayers at the closest train station or sometimes we arranged from Rome airport (the closest one) and will take them back at the departure (train or airport).

    PS We haven't any special insurance for workawayer, it is the responsibility of our workaways to organise their own insurance prior to arrival, if needed.
