  • Description


    I live in remote village in the Alps, called Gracco, 50 km from Udine, north east Italy. I will need a hand with cutting wood and general maintenance of the house I am restoring.

    During time off helpers can explore the valley, climb, hike on the mountains, sunbathe and swim in the river Degano, one km from Gracco.

    My food habits are breakfast with tea, coffe or hot chocolate, cookies, bread and jam, yogurt, fruits, muesly.
    Lunch and dinner are pasta, rice, gnocchi, sometimes soup and frico a local specialty made with cheese and
    Once or twice a week I cook fish, steaks, chicken or sausages on the grill in the terrace, salad or veggy as a side dish.
    Of course good wine from the area.
    Sorry, my food habits are not suitable for strict vegetarians !

    The cultural aspect could be interesting, as Carnia is particular area of the North Eastern Alps. Tolmezzo is the main town with some museums and exibits. There are also other small museums close by

    I will need a hand only a few hours a day, for general maintenance of the cabin, collecting, cutting and storing wood, cutting grass in the summer.
    In summer I have a 40 square meters veggy garden, with around 10 veggy, some work to be done there too.
    I am also restoring a hut, lots of work there...
