At the moment we are waiting for spring, so we can re-new the fencing for our ponys and cut back brambles.
In our old farm house there is always something to do. So at the moment we simply require some help with our daily life.
We - that's Melanie, a self-employed 48-year-old musician and a cheerful 8-year-old boy - are active and like the outdoors, our little dog, our three hens and our lovely garden.
If you are an organised person we would appreciate your help around the house and the garden/fields.
Ideally we are good hosts for female workawayers, on their first trip away from home.
In English I'm almost bilingual, I speak Italian and a little bit of French.
