    Suzy and I moved here just over two years ago to be away from all the madness. We have a nice, modern house that has an integrated, self-contained apartment that we have used occasionally as a rental. Due to our work commitments; I have a computer software company providing a platform for on-line pc video gamers (Fortnite, Mindcraft, Dota2, CSGo) and Suzy has a Creative and Marketing Agency, we have had very little time to 'love' the garden - actually looks more like a meadow now. To be honest, we also do not have the knowledge, so are looking for workawayers that are interested in gardening and helping us continue to develop a self-sufficient vegetable garden project, perhaps even with chickens and goats in the future - we do not have any at the moment.

    We live in a wonderful part of Southern Tuscany with lots of villages to see and places to visit. There is a local community, with people of many nationalities to mix with and enjoy some of the activities and I am English and you will be welcomed by us and our dog Bianca and puppy Max.

    We have 2,000 sq m of unworked garden and want to create a vegetable garden in part of it to become somewhat self-sufficient. Personally we have no knowledge of how or where to begin and very little time due to work commitments. We are looking for workawayers that have an understanding of gardening and this type of undertaking and can begin the project so that it can become an ongoing project. Obviously time constraints will mean that initially the groundwork will have to be undertaken and the early work will be done without necessarily any results being seen

    One large comfortable bedroom with either a double or two single beds. Good sized bathroom with great shower and reasonable kitchen area with all utensils provided. The lounge is open plan with great open fire for any cold evenings and internet is provided, although streaming movies or football might prove a slight challenge

    Fabulous hot springs, many local towns and villages to explore whilst here. You will be left to get on with it, unless anything specific is required. In exchange for that you will have the freedom to explore and to use our house as an incredibly convenient location as a base here in Southern Tuscany

    Suzy and I both run our businesses from 'home' so the internet is a priority for us. Here in Southern Tuscany it is not as fast as we would like but I am able to stream football and Netflix and we can upload and download large files with ease.

    We have plenty of secure parking at the house, as can be seen from the pictures and easy hook up to electric or water should it be needed for a campervan
