    URGENT Help needed 9th April 2019

    We are an Anglo Italian family who needs help getting our rental house ready this will involve ,gardening, painting, cleaning, and general tidying. You will be working with us each day. We have been let down by some of our workawayers last minute so now have availability. There will be some other workawayers working with you, so it would be a great opportunity to make new friends as well as having a great time in Tuscany! If you think you can help and make these dates let us know we would love to host you.

    Meals are provided on working days with evenings free to relax and explore Tuscany and the area at your leisure. We will be working 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 near to Pisa, Florence and the Cinque Terre. Close to beaches and in the mountains, great for walking and those who like outdoor pursuits.

    We will collect you and take you to the local train station in Bagni Di Lucca when you leave us.

    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.

    PLEASE NOTE - We do not insure our workaways, it is the responsibility of our workaways to organise their own insurance prior to arrival
