    We are looking for someone to start from April 15 - July 15. You will be staying in a separate house from the family, just 50 metres from the main property. We are looking for an organised, person to run the household while my partner and I are working. This will involve cleaning, laundry, shopping and cooking lunch on week days and helping out in the garden if necassary. We have my partner's mother with us, she is nearly 90 and although she is great fun and pretty autonomous, we prefer to have someone around the house while we are at work, just in case anything should happen. So your role will be not "looking after" her, but definitely being aware that she needs a person present at all times.
    We live immersed in the countryside down a bumpy "white" road. We would prefer it if you have your own means of transport as it would make your time here more pleasant as there is plenty to go and see - assuming we are not in lockdown!
    Finally, while we will provide you with all the food necessary, we prefer for workaways to take have their breakfast and supper in their own kitchen which is in their living accommodation.
    We would consider a couple, if the other half is happy to help out occasionally, eat independantly and pay their own way in food and contribute towards utility bills

    Arcidosso is a comune in the Province of Grosseto in the Italian region Tuscany, located about 100 kilometres south of Florence and about 35 kilometres northeast of Grosseto and near the town of Montalcino.

    Things to see locally:

    Aldobrandeschi castle
    The construction of the first nucleus of the castle, around which the town would develop, dates from about the year 1000. From the 12th to the 14th centuries it was a stronghold of the Aldobrandeschi and a bulwark against invasion of the Amiata territory by Siena. The north side of the complex is characterized by a tower that rises beyond the roof of the highest building in the compound.

    Historic centre
    The historic centre of Arcidosso, one of the most striking in Amiata, develops in a long pyramid shape along the plateau dominated by the castle. Only three gates of the old medieval walls remain, of which two are original – the Porta di Castello, and the Porta Talassese which faces towards the sea. From here, going down towards Codaccio, is the Porta dell’Orologio, built in 1851 to replace the Porta di Mezzo.

    Other buildings
    Arcidosso has several medieval churches, most notably the church of the Madonna dell'Incoronata, where pilgrims journeyed to pray for the end of the great plague; the church of San Niccolò, patron saint of Arcidosso, and the church of San Leonardo. These churches contain medieval frescoes, paintings and icons. Local legend has it that Merlin, the enchanter associated with the Arthurian cycle, lived in a cave in San Lorenzo, a village between Arcidosso and neighbouring Castel del Piano.

    There is internet available in the house where you will be staying however it is not 100% reliable and definitely not strong enough for regular zoom calls.
