    Hi! We are a family of 4 (Anna Lisa, mum, Davide, dad, and 2 children aged 14 and 10). We have a countryhouse with load of grassland in the beautiful Collio region (an hilly area very similar to Chianti, but located in North Eastern Italy). We want to start a small vegetable garden and manicure the garden. We also have some steel fence to paint.

    During your time off you may visit Gorizia and the neighboring Slovenia (there is a crossborder public bus or you can ride the bike across the border). You can take the train to awesome Trieste (a little Wien on the sea) or Udine or Venice (about 2 hours train ride).
    Transportation from the house to the town center (3 km) will be by public bus (very few rides throughout the day) or by a common bike we will provide you. Please note: to reach the house you will have to cycle uphill.
