  • Description


    I am a man almost 50 years old and live together with my wife, dogs and a cat. I need help fixing things at with my beautiful house which is almost 300 years old. I live in the mountains between Bologna and Firenze.
    The area has clean air and a lot of amazing walking paths. Also the train station is nearby. You need your own car in this area. We moved to Italy because we wanted to live a more quiet live close to nature and also share my place with friends, family and work away people. We do not smoke. smoking is only allowed outside the house. There are different kind of projects the whole year around.For me work way is a new experience. Our house is meant to become a family home. i love to share and take care about people and nature. In wintertime it can be cold here with a lot of snow. You need to be dressed for this outside. The house is cosy and warm. In summertime there is always some wind here and a nice temperature around 27-34 degrees. We do not have much insects but sometimes we meet stinkbugs and scorpios in and outside the house.

    Bologna and Florence are close and you can enjoy the culture from these cities. Very close too the house you can hike on the old Roman path called the Via Deigli Dei. 1 km from the house there are 2 pubs and a few restaurants. I love to hike so we can go in your free time to the Via Deigli Dei. You need hiking shoes for this and good clothing.
