  • Description


    Hello! Please come and help me keep our beautiful garden beautiful!
    I am Giovanna, I am 72 (on the outside... young at heart) and simply love the house and garden my husband and I built from scratch more than 30 years ago. The house is quite large, as is the garden, and it is near Campagnano di Roma, a small village about 30 km. north of Rome. We built it as two separate and self-contained apartments and the upstairs apartment is used for short lets during the summer, but I could offer accomodation in exchange for help during the winter months. I am passionate about the garden, I do have some help but I also do a great deal of work in it myself and at times I feel a bit overwhelmed. Hence this appeal!
    For a numbers of reasons I am unable to offer accomodation for more than two weeks at a time.

    Lots of history and art of course in Rome (which is a half-hour drive away or 45 minutes by bus) and Campagnano itself is set in the Veio Regional Park which dates back to the Etruscan and Roman ages. The village has recently become very popular among pilgrims walking the Via Francigena. I am bi-lingual English/Italian so can help with both languages.
    I come from an international background, have lived or spent a lot of time in different countries (UK, Canada, USA, Switzerland), am deeply interested in history, have made a documentary film on the help Italians gave escaped POWs during World War II (shown on national History Channel) and am always interested in meeting new people and hearing their stories.

  • Aide


    I need someone who loves gardens. After Christmas all the roses need pruning and fruit trees in February etc., I would be working alongside you. I'd love to have a vegetable garden but have found that I can't keep up, so help is needed there as well. There is often some maintenance work, like painting the window grilles, to be done in wintertime. I like to build things and be creative in the garden so new ideas are always welcome!

  • Hébergement


    Workawayers would have a twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom and would also be able to use the small livingroom and kitchen (also equipped with a wood-burning stove) in the upstairs apartment, which has its own entrance. We can decide together whether we want to share meals or cook for ourselves separately. I am not a brilliant cook but can teach how to make a good plate of "pasta"!
    Given that the flat is used for summer lets it needs to be kept in perfect condition so I would definitely appreciate tidiness.

    Autres infos...

    I work as a conference interpreter which is not a regular every day job and when at home I like to spend time working in the garden and with my three dogs but I also go into Rome quite often and would be able to give my guests a lift. There is public transport (bus+train) but it is not brilliant so it might be best for workawayers to work a full day and have a full day off if they want to go sightseeing in Rome. In fact, it would be great if workawayers had their own car.
    There are loads of books in the flat in both English and Italian.
