  • Description


    Hi! We are a young couple (30yo) living in Langhe hills, the wine region of Piedmont, north Italy.
    Lonely Planet picked Piedmont as the world's top region to visit in 2019, check their website to discover about Piedmont and Langhe!;)

    We bought an old stone house + garden and vineyard in summer 2018, we renovated it and we opened a B&B on summer 2019
    We need some help to complete house renovation, gardening, manage and clean the house, sometimes help in small diy projects and working in our vineyard.
    Our little girl Margherita was born in June 2019, so it could be nice to have some help babysitting, if you like babies.

    We love to share our blessed corner of the world with people from all over the world and share our culture, traditions and recipes.
    We did workaway in England in past years and we loved the experience, so we would like to repeat it as host now!
    We will be happy to show you some beauties of our region: landscape, art, history, food, wine and truffles!

    Who we are?
    I am Ludovica, I love traveling and cultural exchange, a degree in Tourism and Languages, 2 scholarships abroad (Japan and New Zealand), quit my company job 2 years ago and now following my dream: owning a charming B&B and creating tours and experiences for travelers. I also love traditions, cooking and embroidery/sewing and all craft and creative things.
    My husband Giorgio is a freelance journalist and historian and most of the days he works from home. He loves gardening, art, Russia and cats.
    We have a black cat called Luna: she lives inside during winter, but mainly outside during summer.

    What else ...

    We are not far from a cosy village, but the best way to move around here is by car. There are also nice paths to hike or go by bike.
    We can organize our time together, so you can visit around with us when we move by car. But if we do not move, you can relax at home or in the garden.
