    Descripción

    We are Jon-Scot & Guido, a Scottish-Italian couple (guess which one of us is Scottish and which is Italian?) living in Umbria, central Italy, in a beautiful house in the country with two very friendly dogs, six lovely cats, a gaggle of crazy geese and a small flock of chickens.

    We are very busy, especially during the spring, looking after our garden with fruit trees and lots of grass needing cut. We need help from mainly in spring/early summer - so April to July, but we'd also like an experienced pair of hands in the Autumn for clearing up and pruning.

    We are good fun guys, chilled and enjoy a peaceful, rural life. Also, we thoroughly enjoy meeting new people and hearing their amazing stories about their travels! (We are gay, but you don't need to be).

    We will provide accommodation in our spacious guest bedroom with king-size bed, three meals per day (Breakfast, lunch and dinner) with drinks, free WiFi broadband internet and also plenty time off to explore central Italy. We have made great friends through Workaway and a similar site that we have used for longer and we are open to making so many more friendships! We live only 1.5 hours drive from Rome.

    I am a trained English teacher so I can help volunteers perfect their English and I am more than happy to do so! Actually - try to stop me from helping you improve your English!

    Since 2012 (originally on another platform), we have hosted people from all over the world. We are keen to host people from countries that we have never hosted before, so we can collect more flags. Of course also happy to host more new friends from the countries we have hosted in the past!

    Flags that we have collected:

    Spacious guest bedroom with kingsize bed. Breakfast-Lunch-Dinner included (sometimes self-service). We can host two Workawayers*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️, but they would need to sleep in the same bed, so better for a couple or 2 close friends. The Kingsize bed can be made with two bed-sets as there are two separate mattresses, but the two single beds have been fused together, so they don't come apart.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️ But we usually only take 1 at a time.

Have a coffee on Piazza del Popolo, Discover amazing churches like Tempio di Santa Maria della Consolazione, San Fortunato, the Duomo and for a bit of architectural contrast Santuario dell'Amore Misericordioso. You can check out spectacular views from Parco Della Rocca, Piazza Garibaldi, Giardini Oberdan and my favourite Monastero delle Lucrezie. You can indulge in some non-church history at Palazzo del Capitano and the Cisterne Romane (underground Roman Cisterns).

    Visit other picturesque Umbrian towns such as Orvieto, Perugia, Spoleto and Assisi.
    Explore the landscape Lake Corbara, Lake Trasimeno, Monte Subasio, Piediluco & the Marmore waterfalls and if you are here at the right time - The Flowering of Castelluccio di Norcia.
    And if all the rural life gets too much for you, hop on a SULGA bus directly from Todi to Rome.

    We recently updated our home wifi network. It is now good in every room of the house plus our outdoor relaxation spaces. The connection is strong. There is a small desk available for the exclusive use of workawayers.

This is an example of the type of job that Workawayers can get involved in. Here we took a strip of lawn and turned in into a small shrub & flower bed, complete with watering system.
Luciano is a very moody cock and the hens are super shy.
