    Description

    hi everybody,

    I live in a beautiful old house between Perugia and Città di Castello in the green heart of central Italy; Umbria! The house is old and we are slowly working on it, restoring parts of it and tidying up. There is always a lot to do! We are a creative couple and are often converting old pieces of wood and old doors into up-cycled furniture!

    I am looking for relaxed, easy-going people who can manage a balance of being independent and respecting our privacy but are friendly and sociable and would be happy to spend one or two evenings together.

    I have a guest's room with access to kitchen and bathroom. In return for free accommodation I would ask you for a few hours each day to help us with some DIY and cleaning jobs around the property. I can also supply you with fresh fruit and veg from the Orto, fresh eggs and a few other kitchen basics.

    there are many things to do…

    making and repairing fences,
    cutting the grass and helping out with the animals and vegetable garden (we have a large vegetable garden, chickens, ducks and geese)
    repairing old doors and windows,
    turning part of the lawn in front of the house into a car parking area
    re-building an old stone wall
    general house cleaning

    - I would be interested in hosting people with carpentry skills, building and DIY skills etc as we are a practical pair but we want some help with some bigger jobs and to learn some new skills from you!

    so some help with these things, for a bed and food, GOOD, LOCAL, FRESH food :), it sounds fair! doesn't it?

    What else ...

    Montone is a peaceful hilltown in a beautiful panoramic position between two tributaries of the Tiber river. It was formerly controlled by the families which dominated the area, such as the Del Monte, the Fortebraccio and the Vitelli families. However, around the middle of the 16th century the town was ceded to the Papal State.
