    We provide accommodation in our home on the estate, where you will have your own bedroom and share a bathroom and kitchen with our family. We are very close to Citerna and Sansepolcro, both are about a 15-minute bus ride from the estate. Typically, we prepare lunch and dinner. We love for everyone to eat and socialize together. We also love to try meals from your culture! We clean the kitchen together and there is a common living space where in the evening you can socialize with each other. We have TV and internet for your convenience.

    We have easy access to internet. We can also give you a ride by car into Sansepolcro, where you will have easy access to all the most beautiful places in Italy such as Arezzo, Anghiari, Citerna, Perugia, Siena, Lucca, Florence and Rome. We expect an honest day's work with a minimum of 25 hours a week. We work when the weather is good, which means that Saturday or Sunday are sometimes working days, especially when it rains during the week days. Keep in mind there's no public transportation on Sundays and limited on Saturday. We can pick you up from the bus station in Sansepolcro. Fighille is about a 15-minute walk from our estate along a scenic road in Umbria. In Fighille, you can find a great village bar with Wi-Fi and apperitivo, a supermarket and dress shop. If you are active and enjoy the outdoors, this is the perfect experience for you.
