We are a Kiwi family with 2 dogs and 3 cats.... We moved to Northern Tuscany 14 years ago and are still working on a big refurbishment project. We live on the premises and have all mod cons - just not particularly refined! Our house is 800 metres up in the foothills of the Apennine Mountains with stunning views. We are looking for couples to work with us - need help with heavy duty gardening and some clearing and property maintenance! We also really value carpentry and building skills! Sorry but we can't help those trying to get Italian citizenship .....

We play a mean game of cards if that can be considered cultural :-)
We are thigh-high in our building project and need help with tiling (bathrooms) clearing the rubble, building trades are always welcome - energy and enthusiasm key!!
own large bedroom with double bed, own bathroom in very spacious family house
Our house has fabulous views and is situated between two very picturesque medieval villages, one of which has a small store and bar. There are regular buses that take you down (or back up) to Bagni di Lucca and beyond. Google Bagni di Lucca (thermal town) and Lucca which is about 40 minutes away. Florence is about 80 minutes away and we have a fantastic river for swimming and fishing in, great walks, beach is about 40 mins away. You can hire quad bikes, go kayaking, mushroom picking....
