I’m Marco (47), and I live in a country house in the south of Umbria, close to the city of Terni (4 km.) and to the magnificent waterfall of Marmore (3 km.), the highest in Europe.
My home is surrounded by a wonderful garden, where you can relax and look for the sunshine, but the most beautiful thing is that at the end of the garden, runs the clear River Nera where you can go to take fresh and swim in summer.
From my house, you can reach the town by bus, by our bicycle or walking if you like (about 30 min.).
From the train station in maximum 1 hour, you can get to Rome, Perugia, Assisi and others medieval places in Umbria.
But if you decide to remain around the city, along the Valnerina, the river Nera valley, you can practice every kind of outdoor sports and activities ( kajak, rafting, mountainbike, speleology, riding, hydrospeed, trekking, paragliding, ecc.)
In last ten years I’ve restructured this house by myself, and now I live and I run a Bed and breakfast here, along with my cats!
See you soon guys

Help around the house
I need help for general maintenance of the house, work in the garden and the park. Is a little bit hard sometimes ( cutting grass, using chainsaw, brush cutter and other tools). I need peolpe able in DIY works ( painting, etc) and also that have a little ability with concrete works because I have to restore an old wall.
Obviously, I'm able to do all of it, and I can help and teach to you .
Unfortunately, I have only rooms available for tourists. I have a little wooden house in the garden , with the space only for sleeping. During the summer, volunteers can stay there, use the bathroom in the loundry, the shower in my apartment or in the swmmingpool, and we share kitchen, breakfast and food in my apartment.
If the rooms for guest are available, during the low season, volunteers can stay there without problems.
I have also a sofa bed in my own apartment available. The studio is only a big room with kitchen and a bathroom ( you can see in two photos), but sometimes we've slept there in four people, without problems. If somebody wants to stay there, I'll be happy to share it.
