    We specially appreciate company for our daughters aged 9 and 3, and help with taking care of the olive trees. We especially need help with olive picking, which takes place in October and November, and with pruning the trees, from March to May each year. In other periods, we can pick wild herbs, flowers and berries that can be eaten, we can work on the little wood in order to create new paths, we can cut wood and grass...

    We have a big guest room with twin beds. The bathroom is in common with us. If you particularly appreciate privacy and the sounds of nature, you are of course free to borrow our tent and accommodate yourself in the garden or in the olive field!

    We appreciate company as much as help, and we do not ask for long hours of help (unless you come when we pick up olives: in that case, we usually work hard a lot!). Gianni works in an office in Firenze, while Giulia is home for most of the time, so she can be a good company. Public buses arrive 20-30 minute walk away from the top of the hill where we live, but we can arrange for car rides up and down the hill!
