    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We, Peter and Denise, are a swiss couple that lives in Italy for nearly 30 years. Denise is a tour guide for Tuscany and and you can join her on some of the tours. Nearby are a lot of interesting medieval villages and cities (Siena, San Gimignano, Florence ecc which you can explore on your freetime. The hamlet itself is quite international and you can practise different languages (german, french, italian and english). Peter does a lot of handywork in the house and you are welcome to join him in this work.

  • Help


    typical tasks could be watering the plants, mowing the grass, feeding the animals and go for a walk with them, some help in the household (cleaning, cooking etc) and some repair tasks in the house (if you are interested).

  • Accommodation


    You will get a room in our house and you can use all the facilities of our house. We live in an old farmhouse in a little hamlet (ca 10 houses) in Tuscany near Siena (20 km). The surroundings are very rural, ideal for walking and mountain bike.

    What else ...

    there is no local transport to our place but you have many occasions to go to Siena either with us or with our neighbours. But of course you should enjoy rural places (no night life around)
