** PLEASE CONTACT THIS HOST IF YOU CAN SPEAK A BIT OF ITALIAN OR WANT TO LEARN IT**

I am a 51 year old craftman and tiler, I love to live in the nature and travel. I'm a good photographer, I sometimes work in clubs as photographer and event organizer. My passion is the football and i forgot to tell you that I live alone with my labrador, I'm divorced.
I' m searching help to harvest the olives in my property. Then I can show you all the process to make the oil at the mill. Here in Umbria is a tradition that goes on for hunderds of years, almost all the families have an olive grove with secular trees.
Usually, because of the quantity ( we have in total 120 olive trees), we produce oil just for our family. The harvest period is from the last days of October, so I can host you from around 28-10-2020 to a date that can be flexible ( it depends about the weather).
I don't speak English unfortunately, a friend helped me to write this. So I will appreciate so much to teach you Italian and maybe try to learn a bit of French ;) My mum is a good cook so you can learn some delicious recipe from her knowledge. She ran an handmade pasta shop in Tavernelle, our town, until 2008 for 40 years, so you can get this precious skill on pasta making if you like to cook!
In the end of October me, my brother and my Dad use to harvest the olives in our property on the hills not far from my home. Now sadly I'm alone, they cannot help me as before so I'm searching someone that could help me. I will appreciate so much it. Unfortunately i can't speak any language, just Italian. I've studied some French but now i forgot everything :(. So I prefer to host someone that can speak a bit of Italian and want to learn more, or Spanish/ French language is also fine, we can try to understand each other!
There are no skills required to harvest the olives so everybody is welcomed.
I can provide two private bedrooms, a kitchen and a toilet just for you workawayers! I will provide all the meal to my volunteer. I can also let them cook because I have an entire kithcen just for my hosts.
Near my town there are many beautiful middle age villages like: Panicale (), Città della Pieve and not far Perugia, the main province of the region. During the free time we can visit together some place or when you want you could take the bus to visit the nearby places ( at 50 meters there is a bus stop). At 20 minutes from my town there is the Lake Trasimeno, it's really nice for walking and discover the nature.
Umbria is a really nice region, full of art, beautiful landscape, nature, wine, good food ( it's famous for sausages, ham and other typical pork dry meat) and mountains. Togheter we could also visit a wine cellar and taste the good umbrian and tuscan wine we have!
