  • Description


    We are 2 vets and love the countryside. I am brazilian but live in Italy since 25 years. Since we bought this house we never stop restoring it! The house was an old cattle farm and now is our second house.

    I stay in Mantova city, 12 km away, and would like to have somebody to keep the house clean, the garden ordered and restoring, building when necessary.

    We also have a dog and a cat. My mother is old, but independent does not need much care, just company. I also need help with the garden, cleaning the house and making repairs, our country house is in a "permanent" state of construction!!!
