    Good Host
  • Description


    I am an italian housewife who recently moved here in tuscany to revive a once dead farm house. I have done a lot for this place, but nowadays i´m starting to feel too old for some of the works that should be done. I would love to have some young and nice people to host and share with them the results of my work (which i am very proud of) and to help me with the rest. In exchange i will make sure that you´ll eat the very best products that the earth here can produce and that you will leave a time that you´ll hardly forget in the wonderful Tuscany.

    We are looking for people who can help with maintenance works of a farmahouse in tuscany. The house is an old manor which we are currently renovating, so there is a lot of work to do including: cutting grass, chainsawing trees, building fences, curing the vinyard, growing a vegetable garden and much more. This is has not by any mean have to be mistaken for a unconfortable staying, as we are a good point with the renovation of the house itself and it´s a very confortable and cozy farm. Most of the work is meant to be done outside, were i cannot work alone for issues of physical strenght.

  • Accommodation


    You will have a confortable bed in a shared/single room depending from the period of the year that you come. The house is gorgeous, immerse in the hilly wilderness of tuscany, you will even have at your disposition a pool (depending on the period of the year that you come) and a park surrounding the house counting more than a million square meters.

    What else ...

    Depending from the periods of the year a part of the house could be rented (generally from July to August), but this will not cause any trouble for you, as your rooms will be separated from the hosts ones. I will always be there for any problem. Work aside the house is near some of the most beautiful sightseeing opportunities in the whole tuscany, like San Gimigniano, Monteriggioni, Volterrra, Florence, Pisa and Siena. It´s also at car distance from the wonderfull Tuscanian coast (30 minutes by car or train). I believe that Tuscany is legitimately one of the best place on earth to visit and to live, but you will learn this yourself by coming here.
