  • Description

    Hi, we are Yvonne and Cliff, a fit, healthy and energetic couple from the U.K!

    Seven years ago, we both decided to give up the rat race and took on the challenge of renovating a tired villa and traditional stone house (a trullo) in the south of Italy. We are extremely proud of our achievement as we transformed the property and 1.5 acres of land and olive grove, into a stunning property with landscaped gardens and a beautiful pool. To help us on the way, we discovered Workaway, and hosted many fantastic workawayers who joined in the hard work and fun of our endeavours and made a significant contribution to the results. So much so, that we thought....why don’t we do this when we’ve finished? After all, we would be bored if we had nothing to do! So, here we are, now ready to offer our skills and experience to anyone else eager to find a use for us.

    Not afraid to get our hands dirty, we are very hard working and enjoy physical jobs. We have a good sense of humour, are easy to get on with and enjoy a bit of banter. We love all food and are happy to help out with any cooking and clearing up if needed.

    We look forward to meeting you!
