  • Description

    Description

    I am Giulia, mother of Alan who now is in USA, and of Stella. We are country folks in the heart, have a small house and a lot of land with olive trees,
    Our dream is to improve/implement our land and the woodden barn that needs some finishing work, create some woodden structures etc. in order to bring life to our little paradise called Tassinaia....
    Therefore we seek the cooperation of good willing people who can bring enthusiasm, vision and mainly some actual skills and experience in building with wood. We need people who know how to work with their hands, use electric tools ( and chainsaw) and have DIY capabilities.

    We live in a beautiful place on the Chianti hills 20km from Florence, you can spend time visiting our fascinating city and learning about Renaissance art and Tuscan culture. We produce organic olive oil and are happy to share our experience. We are an open minded family, welcoming, well travelled, and proud of 'the Tuscan way of Life'.
