    Hello Travellers,
    I will need help with:
    - painting, cleaning and organising the house
    - collecting and chopping wood
    - animal care
    - building stone walls
    - land clearing

    Hello and welcome!

    The main project consists in the recovery of a splendid house in the mountains with a mill for grinding chestnuts.
    The place is really immersed in the green of tuscany (garfagnana) with over 300 chestnut trees. There are natural waterfalls of 5 and 20 meters just 15 minutes walk away and many fantastic walking trails.

    I currently have about 100 free chickens and several cute German shepherds who helps me look after them. There is also a pond with trout that I restored.

    I have a vegetable garden and many wild herbs, berries, nuts and mushrooms to harvest and preserve. So even in the winter I can provide good food which is sourced locally. If you like I can teach you to cook using traditional Italian methods.

    The drinking water comes from a natural spring. With this I also make my own soap which many people consider therapeutic. The farm has a river running through it, and in the future I would like to create hydro-electricity from this.

    Right now I'm concentrating on renovating the bathroom, although I do have a toilet, shower and bidet working with hot water made with a wood-fired heating cooker.

    Please note my place is a bit isolated in the mountains, suitable for nature lovers. If you dont arrive by car you can take a bus or train from Lucca to Coreglia and from there I can pick you up.

    thanks in advance and see you soon ...
