  • Descrição


    My name is Bruno and I'm originally from Venice. I retired from my career to live a simple life in a quiet old house in a small mountain village in the Alps, at the foot of Monte Rosa, the second highest mountain in Europe, on the border with Switzerland. I need help (4/5 hours a day, 5 days a week, 25 hours maximum per week, cutting wood and storing it for the winter, keeping the garden tidy and other general maintenance work. I would need an experienced plumber and electrician if possible, and also someone with bricklaying experience as the house is old and needs some repairs
    A few kilometers from my house there is a winter sports resort (Macugnaga) where you can ski in winter. In summer you can go hiking on the glaciers. In both summer and winter there is a lot to do for the mind and body. Walking, reading, writing, meditating, swimming in the river, visiting the villages or Lake Maggiore which is not far away. My house is large, surrounded by a walnut and larch forest. I have a vegetable garden that I grow using natural and organic methods. And in the garden there is a spring of fresh, pure water. There is a wooden house under a walnut tree for those who want to be alone in the woods for a while. I live alone, I am retired, I have two children and they both live and work in France, with me there is a dog, in front of my house there is the valley and under the Anza stream where you can fish Not far from my house mine there is an old gold mine, closed for many years and there is also a canyoning centre.
