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.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
She will stay in a beautiful countryside house, in an area full of historical background (mainly WW1 and WW2). We all speak English and have been living abroad for several years.
We need a person who is passionate and has some expertise on gardening. She should take care of the garden (pruning, planting new plants) and start a vegetable and edible flowers garden as well as planting new small trees. There will be also some fence to paint.
A very comfortable bedroom with a double bed all for you, a desk and a wardrobe. Also you will have a bathroom with shower all for you (not ensuite, but very close to your bedroom). Shared Kitchen (meals are provided by us, but if you want to cook something by yourself you can always do it). Possibility to play ping pong and a piano. The house has been recently renovated so it is very comfortable and pleasant.
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.
