We have 2 places available for people with skills to help build a gazebo and small fence and paint it. Also able to strim and clear near fencing and help dig up and replant a flower bed. If you think you can help we would love to hear from you.
We offer for about 5 hours help each day 5 days a week, all meals and accommodation. The rest of the time is free for you to relax and explore Tuscany and the area at your leisure. We tend to work together outside on the land, garden and in the house.
We speak perfect English and Italian and live in a farm house in the hills of Bagni di Lucca, a beautiful thermal spa town 25 minutes north of Lucca city. We are within a train ride to Lucca, Pisa and Florence. In the mountains, great for walking and those who like outdoor pursuits.

Bagni di Lucca is a rural Tuscan area, famous for its thermal spa centres. We live in the nearest village Guzzano, loc Pieve di Controne. This is a traditional Tuscan village filled with locals, where most people either farm produce for their families, have allotments, or work cutting woods in the woodland. The village Guzzano has few foreign families. it is filled with friendly local people and we have here a real sense of community here. Bagni di Lucca centre filled with bars, shops and restaurants, La Villa, is 4 km away with buses running daily, to good transports links for Florence, the Versilian coast, Lucca, Pisa and the Cinque Terre. We tend to go down to the centre every day, so getting a lift for our work aways is no problem.
