  • Description


    Ciao travellers, cheerful, fanciful and indipendent people.
    For some circumstances I'm here alone during this period so I'm searching 1 very Indipendent person or a COUPLE to stay here to PET AND HOUSE SIT with 3 dogs 1horse and 1 donkey, because I need to be eventially a bit more free and to go away sometimes,even for few days. Sl Accompdation in a hamlet cottage ( no in the high season) or a room in the house. I supply for essential food. Better if you have driving license. If you have particular skills in buildings or as carpenter we can make some economic agreement ( no salary anyway)
    If you are musicien we can prepare a basker
    In Case you are busy you can choose the option : just take. Care of the animals ( no 25 hours X week but just 10) , and provide to your meals.

    I also consider LOng TERMS VOLUNTEERS
    I wait for you ❤️ . PLEASE DON'T WRITE IF YOU ARE NOT REALLY INTERESTED in what is described above!!

    NORMALLY (depends on seasons
    Help with horses
    Gardening and weeding
    (grass cut weeding or trimmer if you are able )
    swimmingpool (foreground) cleaning and maintenance
    -Cooking ( not for turists)
    -guests entertainment, cleaning common spaces and pool, gardening,

    In any case we expect from you a real mental health, reliability, maturity, Independence and sharing will.
    ATTENTION: If you are not real nature lover, not a bit wild in your soul, NOT adaptable and brave, if you are just escaping from yourself, this is not the place for you!!

    Our PLACE :We are living in a small Ancient hamlet in a panoramic position at an altitude of 750 mt in Piacenza (Emilia Romagna) high hills, not far from interesting artistic sites, in peace and silence.
    We love music, art cinema.
    I love spirituality and philosophy( beginner) You can use our music room with many instruments ( sinth , piano, guitars, jambee, ampli etc)
    I'd love to develop art projects together.

    Normally Need help 3/4 hours a day for 5/6 days a week, but eventually the volunteers help as long as they feel like. I'm flexible and wish you have plenty of time for yourself.
    If you like cooking for everybody you are always welcome! Sometimes you will arrange your own with autonomy.
    Anyway I provide for essential food stocks and supply of wood. You'll provide for your, beers, drinks and specific special diet.
    In working time we use to have lunch together as a family , changing roles in the kitchen (Who cooks doesn't wash the dishes ...and viceversa).
    Also In the evening sometimes we dinner together
    Naturally we are delighted to taste your different food. No one serves the others, we cooperate all together,

    What else ...

    WORNING You should know that we heat, also water only with wood ( solar shower outside in summer) . A part of progress has not yet entered from us. It 's very romantic, admittedly, but sometimes tiring.
    This is not a frenetic place. SOMETIMES YOU'LL BE ALONE. As you come
    here you must to be able to relax and loose the sense of the
    time that passes so fast..., don't feel bored , be independent and cultivate you own time.
    Anyway when you don't resist, and want to escape for a while, there's a bus right in front of the farm a couple of time a day that brings you into the "world".

    Please write only if you are really interested ciao
