Looking for an enriching experience in Italy?
My name is Barbara and I am 62 years of age.
I have just moved into a very nice, isolated house for the next 2/3 years until the destiny of my organic lavender farm will be set. I can host a skilled single helper or couple to help in housekeeping decluttering and a little maintenance in the house.
Normally we grow our own vegetables and pick the edible herbs that grow on the property.
Biodiversity is a must here and we also harvest seeds for exchange.
We live with two big, lovely black dogs, Tara and Taboo, 5 cats and about 30 chickens. We breed an ancient chicken breed feeding with natural feedstuff and we need help to the chicken coop clean.
There is a lot of things that can be done and we are always open to new and creative ideas, to make our small farm a better place to visit.
Among requested skills, we'd love to host a good DIY "engineer" as soon as possible!
Along with my family, I generally eat simple local natural food, some of it is grown by us.
We are no vegetarians therefore, if you are, please let us know beforehand as well as if you are allergic to anything.
We love to hear other people's stories and cultures and we only host helpers with references, travel insurance, photograph, clean, tidy, enthusiastic and polite who are prepared to work Monday to Friday for about 4 to 5 hours per day, starting from 8.30 or 9am, including the time needed to clear the table and clean the kitchen after meals.
On weekends everybody, including us, will be off duty from Saturday 2pm but of course we are flexible in case you plan a full weekend away.
We are and like open minded people and polite smokers. We provide limited quantities of wine during meals and we do not provide hard liquors. Smoking, eating and alcohol drinking in the bedroom is not permitted.
We do not accept extra animals.
PS: CITIZENSHIP RECOGNITION SEEKERS: Unfortunately due to the present situation and rules in the territory where I live, I can not host for this purpose any more.
Ciao for now! Barbara

I think travelers might benefit from our life experience, culture and the beauty of the territory where we live.
With their help I'd like to organize little cultural events in the spring/summer season.

My Eco life project requires maintenance, gardening and help in the house.
Priority: help keep the house clean and tidy, wash dishes and leave the kitchen clean and tidy. I would also like to create a nice and welcoming outside for the house. So the required skills are as gardner, mason, electrician, carpenter plus interior decoration and renovation ideas will be most welcome.
Lorenzo is a great help and takes care of the animals and the vegetable garden, but he is not very skilled in general construction and maintenance. So the more skills in that area the better.
In the winter the house can feel please be prepared with warm clothing.

Travelers will be hosted in a nice comfortable two beds room with a stunning view in our home.
Travelers can benefit from a very beautiful and cultural area, Vicenza (30 mins away by car) and the Palladian Villas district, wonderful food and trekking area. Venice is about one hour away by train and Verona (Romeo and Juliet's town) is a little more than half hour away. Padova and thermal centers are within 1 hours drive, walking experiences and lots going on in the whole Region starting with the spring throughout the fall.
TRANSPORT: Helpers will be picked up and taken to/from the nearest railway or bus station on arrival/departure dates if needed for a 5€ contribution each trip. Except on Sundays (unfortunately!) you can count on public transport to and from Vicenza, stopping not far from our home quite frequently mornings and afternoons during the week. Extra lifts can be negotiated.
