one or two persons who are present and enjoy using what nature offers as we did for the past 20 years when we ran an educational project in 2 houses on 25 acres with olives and sheep. Now the sheep are sold and we rented out for a while, but in the meantime would have to invest so much in order to legalize the activity that we prefer to work outside waiting for the property to find a new destination. Since there is so much beautiful room, sitters could invite friends to stay with them (economic contribution to be negotiated).
I might not be off most of the time, but, due to a hand-surgery 9 months ago, would very much appreciate help in strimming. It would be perfect to have someone for a longer amount of time. In addition, and if you like, there might be WWOOFers (willing workers on organic farms) to help.
taking care of the garden (also for his/her own food-requirements), watering plants, maintain the property, strimming (about 4 hours of work a day), feeding one dog.
The property extends on a hill above Lago Trasimeno (you see it from the highest point)at 450 m in a small settlement with Dutch, Sicilian and Umbrian neighbours. It ist park-like, surrounded by trees, with a swimming pool (will not be opened this year), bakery, wood-shop, atelier, gorgeous panorama, plenty of light and surrounded by fences and a closeable gate. Magione, with 8 supermarkets, train-station and anything you might need is at 10 km distance, the nearest village with a bus-stop at 4 km. To Perugia it takes 20 min.with the car.
Telefone, internet (7 MB), all commodities, but no luxury.
Please don't apply for this position if you can't make a (minimum) three month commitment to the job. If you've taken a sabbatical from a stressful job, it would be the ideal opportunity to switch and immerge in rural rhythm - as did the last couple who stayed from June to November. We had a great time together.
