    Now looking for a couple from September. We can host from 2 weeks up to three months. We need to make a pause for Christmas when our families will join and we will need the apartment to be free to host them, and are available again from January onwards.

    We are a family of 3, mother (43), father (51) and son (5). We are travellers and creative. We love to put our hands into manual things and learn every day. We love music, cooking healhy dishes, we love the snow and gardening.
    Myself I am fond at interior design and I love sewing.
    My husband has a little carpentry lab for his spare time and plans to start doing wood toys 100% eco fiendly for kids one day.
    Just moved from Milan to our dream house on the Alps to live in harmony with nature and gaze at the surprising landscape all around.
    Our house went through big renewal last year, now it's the turn of the external part! :-)

    Here you can:
    - enjoy the great view to the Alps and sun raises on the plain (we are on a hill)
    - try the itineraries in the nature all around
    - enjoy relaxed village life: Torre Pellice is a cosy nice little town (5.000 dwellers) with restaurants, bars, book shops, minimarkets, etc.

    We offer accommodation and bills coverage. We are happy to share meals especially during weekends when we have more spare time (free from work).

    We need some help cleaning up the garden (prune some plants, cut the grass, clean the ditch, etc.), to co tongue our work to complete our first vegetable garden (build the gate for the fence, the brink for the raised beds, the path in stones, improve our organic composter, harvest the vegetables and the fruits according to the season and when you visit us)
    Will then also need help to sandpaper the entrance door and paint it, take the silicon out from the garage gate so we can replace some broken glasses, put in order some materials we have parked in the outer part of the house to the garage, build few steps in the path to reach easily the vegetable garden, sandpaper some wooden doors. Should you know something about electricity, we would also like to bring electricity in the canopy and the garage.

    We have a number of electric tools to make these works easier :-)

    Last, but not essential, it may be nice if you could help with our son, prepare some meals and clean the house. We manage all this quite well but we may need your help here and there.

    We are flexible with the days/hours that can be arranged together.
    Our only wish is that you make yourself available on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays which is when we are also free from our works and can explain you how to do the job. Except for the first explanations in each job and depending also on your confidence factor to become independent with that task, you can decide freely when to do it also arranging based on your other remote job if any.
    We see no constrains and are open.

    Since we will progress on with these works week after week, some of the listed works might have been completed at your arrival. Please feel free to check with us for update if this is relevant information for you. :-)
