Hi there, we are Yvonne and Cliff, an English couple (and our cat Zorro) who six years ago decided to escape the rat race in the UK and embark on restoring a property in Puglia. We are both in our early 50’s, but are young spirited and energetic. Our aim is to develop a beautiful place in this rural countryside to rent out to future guests, looking for comfort within a tranquil setting.
We have made a good start on the restoration project and the interior of the villa and trullo are virtually complete, very comfortable and well appointed. We have added a swimming pool which is also complete. The work in the garden is progressing at a steady pace (slowly) and we could really benefit from an extra pair of hands or 2!
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
This is a very agricultural area. Local food production.
Most of the work is heavy, manual labour i.e. soil and rubble shifting, bricklaying and concreting, so we do need fit and healthy workawayers. There are some lighter jobs to help with the aching muscles, such as painting fences, housework, and cooking. Depending on the time of year, we may need help with garden maintenance and harvesting our fruit trees. You need to come with your own work clothes and sturdy boots but we will provide working gloves etc
We would ideally prefer to host non-smoking couples.
English, Italiano (poco)
Depending on the time of year, you can either stay in our self-contained trullo with it's own bedroom, lounge, kitchen & bathroom, or stay with us in the villa where you will have your own bedroom and bathroom.
