My name is Bruno and I'm originally from Venice. I retired to live a simple life alone in a quiet old house in a small mountain village at the foot of Monte Rosa which is the second highest mountain in Europe, on the Swiss border. There is a winter sports resort (Macugnaga) just a few miles from my house where you can ski in winter. In Summer you can make excursions to the glaciers. There is plenty to do both summer and winter for the mind and the body. Walking, reading, writing, meditating, swimming in the river, visiting the villages or the Lake Maggiore which isn't far . My house is large, surrounded by a forest of walnut and larch trees. I have a vegetable garden that I cultivate using natural and organic methods.
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
I need help (5 hours per day, 5 days a week) to chop wood and store it for the the winter, keep the garden tidy and other general maintenance jobs. I would need experienced plumber and electrician because our house is old and needs some repairs.
What else ...
I do not smoke and I prefer non-smokers. I am not vegetarian but I mostly cook vegetarian food with products from my own garden.
