We have 3 houses: 2 with apartments that we rent mostly from Saturday to Saturday in a large property of more than 700 acres like a natural park overlooking Chiana valley ( Tuscany) and Nestore valley ( Umbria) and like a crown around us the most beautiful medieval and renaissance villages in Italy as: Città della Pieve, Cortona, Montepulciano, Castiglione del Lago on Trasimeno lake, Chiusi and Chiusi Lake, Perouse, Assisi and so on. But we don't see Rome and Florence easily accessible by train from Chiusi railway station in one hour about. The work it hard only on Saturday when the families leaves their apartments or the villa and other families will arrive the same day. So we ( I and the volunteer )have to greet the people, help the two cleaning ladies and the maintainer to do their work and welcoming the new arrival from all over the world. Monday I collect all the new arrival at one of the swimming pool to explain the things to see and to do, the others day there is a light work of gardening, or cleaning the swimming pool ( generally is done by the manteineer) , put order around the houses or inside the storage room where are bicycles, fishing rods, toys, DVD ... for the customers. she/he could help me to answer to the mails arriving at the property - but generally I do myself this work.
I'm un old lady living with his son. My staff is very nice and all will be very friendly. The volunteer will have his own room with bed, night table, desk and something to hang his dresses. At home, that is above all the property, we have two bathrooms. The volunteer will be our guest mainly: eating with us, helping in the kitchen if she ( I would prefer) like to learn italian recipes, keeping order in the house ( the two cleaning ladies come twice a week).
I will let her/him the old pick up of the farm to go out and inside the property because is big.
She or he can have 2 days off as suggested, but she can be free most of the days to visit the beautiful surroundings around us. Sometime I will be pleased to go together because I need to know any news or event around to suggest it to my guests.
