  • Description


    We live in an organic-oasis within a farm, with horses, 3 lakes, great walks, organic garden, and we are 800 mterers from the village and 5 km from the most beautiful medioeval town in Italy, Gubbio.
    Our family consists of a boy 13 year old and 9 year old daughter, a cat and a dog. We are non smokers , I am vegetarian but wife and kids may have some time non veg.
    We look for people that are happy to have an experience in the country-side, help in the garden, collect olives, share the house daily life and be open to any type of need. There is always some thing to do either with kids or maintenance and even looking after guests coming in the "agriturismo", ( holiday in the farm)
