  • Description

    Description

    We're an English family who moved to rural Puglia from London to try a different way of life. We need help from couples (sorry families) in the autumn with our olive harvest and then again in the spring with general land management and buildings maintenance.

    Claire & Andy met at London Zoo and bought a dilapidated old farm in 2004 which we've renovated and converted into a self-contained holiday villa and living accommodation for us. It's set in 5 acres of land planted mainly with olive and almond trees. We have a vegetable garden and keep chickens, and we also have three dogs and a cat as well as three children aged between 12 and 7.

    We've made a commitment to farm the land organically, as well as installing solar hot water panels, using wood in our heating system and collecting rainwater to fill our cistern.

    We host couples aged 25+.
