  • Descrição


    During the winter months, we are looking for 2 people who would like to come and stay, do some general maintenance and feed the cats. If this is you, please make contact. We will also being looking for our usual support next year from April.

    We took over Casa in April 2022 from someone who has been running creative retreats in this corner of Umbria for many years. Julian and his team will continue to work from our house and we will be adding further creative and wellness retreats

    We typically look for 2 workaways for our seasons - one to help cook for our groups and one to help with guests (preparing rooms, serving meals, etc). Groups are around 6-8 guests only and we live in a beautiful hill overlooking the iconic Tuscan landscape.

    Some people join in during retreats, offering guided foraging walks or yoga. When the guests arrive, all staff are expected to behave in a professional and calm, customer focused manner. You will be invited to join in on any appropriate activities. We all drop to retreat speed when the guests arrive.

    Sometimes you will be cooking for guests and sometimes it may be cooking for and supporting the practitioners providing healthcare for the guests. We pay €250 a a week for a single person and €400 for a couple for each retreat week .

    We have had cooks/chefs here for a number of years, and all have benefitted by gaining a true understanding of Italian food in a low pressure, small-number environment, with simple Italian cuisine - enabling them to gain experience of the traditional food of this country. This would be a paid position with lovely accommodation.

    While on retreat, there are many opportunities to be involved, learn, meet and make friends with the creatives or health care professionals on site.

    We live near a beautiful Tuscan hilltop town, Chiusi, and the railway station there serves all the major cities in Italy. Around an hour away are Rome, Florence, Arezzo, Siena, Perugia, Assisi. In the summer months there is a swimming pool and an amazing natural environment in which to wander and unwind. This is a stunning and classic tuscan landscape where people travel thousands of miles to be able to photograph and paint. The art studio is available during off-class times that you can use.

    Above all, we would like help from someone with a friendly and positive disposition, happy to turn their hands to whatever is needed knowing that all help is greatly appreciated. It is fair to say that many of our workaways come back to work, or stay much longer than they expected, or sometimes just pop by to say hi for a week or so and get stuck in again. There is always plenty to do, and we work hard, but it's lovely here and we make the most of the opportunity to live in a beautiful place with a visiting dog, a few cats and lots of smiles.
