    Hi! We're Fluentia, a small group of people who lives in Liguria (Italy) in a village called Villatalla (IM), and we are searching for helpers, to work with us in our gardens.
    We ask your help in many different situations, from simple gardens activities to more heavy works, like building fences etc, or cleaning the house and help us cooking.

    Villatalla is a small town located in the hills of Liguria, 40 minutes from the sea. There is a simple shop and the local Tavern. The village is surrounded by oak and olive trees, in fact many of the town are dedicated to the olive harvest and the creation of oil.
    We will provide you room and board, must of us loves to cook so you we'll taste some local dishes.
