  • Description


    We are Alessandra e Patrizia, strong women with a lot of of work to do. We are married since 2014 (in Italy there wasn't a law for same sex marriage but we did anyway a big party with all our friends and family) then as the law passed we had our regular wedding in September 2017. We are proud moms of Michele Alessandro and with the help of one employee we run the Locanda Settimo Cielo in Lubriano.

    We need to share experience and spend time with people from whom we can learn something new and to whom we can give something.

    We look for women (sorry but we prefer to work with smart, independent and strong women like us) or couples (better women, same-sex couple)...or try to prove us wrong :-D we are always ready to a good chat and we like to "change mind" with a reason.

    We usually look for W.A. from end of march/start of April 'cause at this moment of the year we open the locanda after the winter closing and there is a loto of work to do, so that we cannot keep it together with the rest, not related to the job at the Locanda. Such as: follow up the "house" duty like animal care (2 dogs and 6 cats), simply garden duty such as watering the plants in the porch or something more difficult like task at the food garden and eventually, some times, cooking for the family or do the courses: family stuff like that.

    We offer:
    Of course we need one of the skills above :-) The working time will be maximum 4 hours a day, depending on the amount of work we have at the locanda. The rest will be free time to spend as you like in the neighborhood or whatever PLS note that it's not comfortable to move without a car (bike, motorcycle) meaning: no easy public transportation is available in the area. Of course you'll have a room with bathroom, meals, internet and all you'll need for a cozy and happy stay.

    This is what we usually ask to a workawayers:

    We run an Agriturismo, during the season we are very busy and we would love some help to take care of our personal stuff: animal, run the private home duties and daily maintenance work in the food garden. We need help but on top we need to share our lifestyle with some one that can understand and share this vision.
    We will have a baby when he will arrive we will have more duties and less time to develop our beautiful house-farm-eden :-)
    We remember that our search criteria is couples (better if same sex couple, but also etero couples will be welcomed) or female lonely travelers - workawayers.

    Thank you for paying attention and see you here
    Ale e Pat
