We are a family living in the middle of the Tuscany countryside, about 25 km from Florence.
We love nature, animals and spending time in company! We are very easy going and getting to know other cultures is one of our passions.
We are located in Carmignano, a little village of 1200 people and we live in an historical villa from 1600! Part of this villa is now a B&B (open during spring, summer and part of autumn)
You'll get to be surrounded by nature and have a breathtaking view of the typical tuscan landscape, as you can see from the pictures
From about mid October we are starting the harvest of the olives to produce our own olive oil for personal use only, and we would love to have some extra hands! :) we have more or less 450 olive trees! the harvest it's going to last almost 2 months. We are also going to renovate some windows and shutters, repairing and painting them, and also painting some walls!
The task it's going to be quite tiring.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
here you can learn bit of Italian and Italian culture and cuisine and all about the production of olive oil!
Florence is very accessible, since there are trains and busses to get there! (it's always better if you have your own car).
Many other tuscan cities and villages are not far from here! Lucca, Vinci and Pisa are an example.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
we need help with the olives harvest, picking and re-organizing the wood and we also would like someone who knows about woodworking, since we are going to fix and renovate our windows and shutters!
(You won't be asked to help in the bnb, since it's going to be closed)
