I went to the countryside this week-end and I just felt a strong need to return to my childhood holidays at my grandparents farm, surrounded by mountains, forests and animals. Some chores in the morning and a great lunch followed by an afternoon nap. I never slept so well in my entire life.
As I was browsing through here would by my favorite add:
!!! WE NEED HELP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE !!!
We need additional help for a wedding we are hosting on June 5th. We are urgently seeking one male employee to begin as soon as possible and stay beyond the 5th. If you are interested, please title your message WEDDING, so we can get in touch immediately. Thank you.
Would you like to stay in beautiful Tuscany? Come and help us in our agriturismo – only 27 km away from Florence (about 30 minutes by train)!
My name is Daniela and I work together with my ex-husband in our farm and agriturismo. I live with three of my four daughters at the age between 15 and 17. We need help with our business, general maintenance of the house and care for our animals. We produce wine and olive oil and have vineyards and olive fields, but at the moment we don’t need any help in this area. We have eight apartments and a villa with six guest rooms. There are two swimming pools and the fattoria offers a beautiful view around.
It is a small paradise in the heart of Tuscany so if you want to be a volunteer in Italy just send us a message!
We prefer people who can stay at least for one month but even if you want to stay for a shorter time, feel free to ask us for availability.
