We are in our 60s, an anglo italian professional family with 3 grown up daughters, 2 son in laws and a grandson of nearly 3. We have a labrador and 3 cats. We live in a house on a hill in the north west of tuscany. We also have a holiday flat that needs some attention occasionally.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
Help with Computers/ Internet
Our garden is wild and untamed, but could be even more beautiful. It's very steep and rocky with a medieval castle (in good order) on the top. Olive and other trees need pruning or cutting back to reveal the castle, and paths could be made for easier access. Mend stone walls paint,weed, dig, sweep/tidy up etc. Give help with computers if possible/necessary.
You need to have lots of energy and be strong!
