    Hello workawayers,

    We need under more a little help with building/ gardening (which can be hard work!) and everyday life ...

    For quite a time we didn't have workawayer, but we want to start it again...
    We are a German couple, who are restoring an old Italian Farmhouse in southern Piemonte, Italy to live here. Piedmont is the region of good wines and the home of the Slow-Food-Movement - the distance to the sea is about one hour by car. Though we are here on the country-side, the social infrastructure is very good with a lot of shops and restaurants nearby.
    The house is situated in the Alta Langa near the little village of Prunetto on a south-west hillside with terraces and with a great view on the Mediterranean Alpes. Other towns nearby are Monesiglio, Cortemilia, Ceva, Alba - the next big town is Torino, the next big airport Milano-Malpensa.
    You really should love dogs: we have three Bergamasco-sheepdogs, who are part of our family and always around.
    We hope to have new puppies this summer!
    On one of the terraces we have a nice swimmingpool (6,5 by 3,5m).
    We love to cook - our kitchen is tasty, light and healthy with a lot of vegetables - typical Mediterranian - we love to make our pasta ourselves aswell as jam and tomato-sauces...
    ... and we love to have fun!

    Help

    the work to do is very diversified:
    The house is nearly ready, but there is still a lot to do to really finish and maintain, like painting shutters and doors...
    Here is also always garden work (we have flowers, vegetables, meadows and fruit-trees) and some terraces always need a helping hand too.
    Our Bergamasco-sheepdogs, who love to play and who need sometimes a bit of attention and grooming of their rasta-dreadlocks...
    You should do your part of cleaning, dish-washing etc. like we do
    The swimmingpool needs a bit of cleaning every day - saving bugs and flies out of the water

    Accommodation

    Our house is an old "rustico" a natural-stone house, which is nearly rebuilt totally.
    We have two bathrooms on two levels of the house, so one will be for you.
    You can choose if you prefer to sleep in our caravan, where you really would have your own home and privacy - or to sleep in the chamber below in the house - we sleep on the first floor, but at the moment we are using the living with kitchen-area on the groundfloor, because the living/kitchen on the first floor still needs floor-treatment and furniture ;-).
    You would share meals with us and just live with us...
