    I live with my 11 yearsold daughter in Piombino, right in front of Elba island. I've been speaking some english with her since she was 2, we did some travelling (also with workaway) in Canada and UK and now she can communicate pretty well. We are going to move in a bigger house (still in Piombino) and will need some help with the move, carrying cardboard boxes and stuff. No need to be strong, just fit! I need an extra pair of hands. This will supposedly take place in early september but I'm still uncertain about the dates. Mothers travelling with children my daughter's age would be top! Exellent level of english required.
    Guests welcome also in the autumn/winter period, minimum 3 weeks. Then the help required will be some housework.
    My deal would be 3 hours of work a day in return for accomodation with no meals included. We can eat together but the workawayer should contribute to buying food. But we can also arrange it differently

    What else ...

    I expect people would like to join us in late summer, which is a very good season for the area. Less hot than july/august hopefully! I'll be working but not everyday, in that period of the year we are normally at the beach at least once a week and the host is welcome to join us. there is also a nice cove in a walking distance from the apartment. Apart from beachlife, the town center is a 20 min walk away or 10 by bike. there are some nice villages around our place with some relevant medieval landmarks and in piombino as well as in the surroundings, and elba is at one hour ferry and can be visited with a one day trip.
