  • Description


    We are a family recently moved here from Milan, we did a change of life. It's Giulio, Michaela and Leo (7 years old). We have a pub and B&B, a little field with garden and fruit trees.
    We are located in front of an historical road, SS62, and the famous Via Francigena with pilgrims and tourists passing by.
    We love to stay here, we have spectacular landscapes.
    We live and work in the same place: we don't need to move often to the city. The nearest town is very little and there are very few public transportation to the city.
    We don't need any help for the pub, as it is so little, but we would like to improve our agricultural potential and finish the works our house needs. Furthermore we need help in everyday life: cooking for the family, take care of the house, animals and garden.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We've been living for ten years in Milan, then moved here in the mountains. We know the bad and the good of both experiences. There is a beautiful landscape to discover here, very special things to eat, very good air to breath.

  • Help


    Everyday there's a lot to do, different things, there's time to get relaxed but not to get bored! We need some help with cooking, the field and garden, and set things around the house. There are some hard works to do, like building the fence of the garden, planting or cutting bushes.
    Our house needs some work of maintenance and building to complete the renovation work: carpentry and wood working, cleaning the wood for the floor, etc.
    Outside we have a field and a vegetable garden: it needs help :)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in an isolated area. It is rarely connected with the city, the mountains and the sea: Parma and Liguria's Cinque Terre are 1 hour far from here, by car, bus or train, but they are not so frequent (one a day). It could be difficult for you to make touristic journeys if you don't have a car.
