  • Description


    Hello, my name is Philippe-Pierre.

    I am living in the beautiful hills near Florence since more than 20 years.
    Together with my dog Taggi and some cats.

    A house for friends from all over the world. A sort off a meeting point., for meditation, dancing, art and music since many years.
    Due to Covid19 the activity is very low.
    But you will have plenty of time for meditation, paintig, hiking, horsbackriding, woodcarving and visiting the nearby town Florence, Arezzo or Siena .

    The house is Secular Buddhist orientated.

    I need some help because i am in remission from a cancer after a ambulant chemotherapy.
    I have to go periodically to Switzerland for controlls and check ups.

    So i need a housekeeper and helper who is able to keep the house and the animals who are living in the house. Someone who can cut the grass and keep well the garden around the house.

    We are a open minded, peaceful and friendly house.

    Looking forward for a precious helper.
    Peace, love and happiness to all sentient beings
