    About us:
    We are two friends, Daniela (from Austria) and Giambattista (from Italy) managing a House in the forest in Tuscany close to the coast (15km). We are here since January 2016 and we wouldn't mind an helping hand with some general tasks in or around the house. The house is run as a holiday house and center for residential courses and retreats for Yoga, meditation, nutrition and other holistic disciplines. We have two lovely dogs and two cats.

    What needs to be done:

    We mainly need help in the following tasks, but this may vary:

    - Little gardening
    - General maintenance: little things here and there to fix
    - Forest: we are surrounded by the forest and we need to clean a bit the spaces around the house, like cutting branches and bushes so that we have access to that space
    - Creativity can be expressed freely to improve the common areas or the apartments
    - If you are a yoga teacher, a massage therapist or you have some other qualifications or experiences, we could offer your private treatments to guests and you will be paid your rate for your work. We cannot host you only for this, in exchange we also need help with all the other tasks.

    Who are we are looking for:

    A single workawayer or a couple. You should not mind working outdoor in an isolated house in the forest. The closest village is 2km, the beach 15km. We go at least once a week with the car to the next big town for the weekly farmer's market, that's on the seaside and sometimes we stop for a walk on the beach or a skinny dip during season. It's not easy, but possible, to go around with public transport, your own vehicle or driving license (valid for Italy) is recommended if you want to be independent.

    What do you get in exchange:
    You get of course all meals. Most of the time we'll eat and cook together, but sometimes is not possible and you will have to take care of your own meals.
    Accommodation is in one of the apartments or in the yoga room.

    We might ask help with tasks like cleaning or cooking for our guests only if it is really busy, usually we have staff for this tasks and do not require from our Workawayers to help run the place, but rather help make it a nicer place.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We were Workawayers ourselves in the past and we know how important it is when you arrive to a new place to feel welcomed and part of the family. We strive hard to make this true for our volunteers. When you are here you're one of us. You'll learn to understand how is life in the real Tuscan countryside and its small villages and you'll certainly enjoy the food culture and learn a lot of new recipes. You can learn a lot of the Italian language in the process if that's what you're looking for and, especially if you live in the city, enjoy the real sound of silence and everything about a Mediterranean forest: the free food it offers, the animals that populate it, the different vegetation and so on. We have also learned many tricks and tips from our Workawayers and that's what really makes the difference as the exchange is never only one way!
