I live in the Umbrian countryside not terrifically well-served by public transport, but bicycle distance from the city and walking distance for a goer -- 6 km one way. I have a guest room sometimes used for guests or Couchsurfers. Because of a back problem I could use gardening help and some muscle in the house occasional.
Help around the house
I am looking for help in Spring, getting the garden ready for the growing and planting season. Any time after early March is good.
There are a few house repairs that can be done this year, too. I would like to restore the door to the outside oven and clean it up so that we could use it. It hasn't been used since the 1960s and it's about time bread and pizza came out of it again.
A separate guest room with a shared bath.
I am a chef so you will eat well when you eat in. You will be expected to pick up after yourself and clean up after yourself. I will not be mom.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Can host families
I try to watch out that volunteers work when it is safe and not under a broiling sun. It hasn't yet ever been 20 hours, but that seems fair.
