Please read before applying, and *** ONLY *** apply if... :
** The only dates needed are those listed. Please ONLY apply if you are available on those dates, otherwise you will be automatically rejected. We do NOT keep details of potential/future sitters (this is a recurrent question).
** Please verify your possible travel costs (flight and car rental if needed) before applying. There is no point in discussing the sit if you can not meet the costs of travel.
*** Apply if you have access to a car (yours or rented).
** We can host one child of 5 or older if she/he shares the studio with her/his parents. The sit is not suitable for children younger than 5 or for more than 1 child at any given time.
** I'm sorry, but we cannot host other dogs on the property (nor cats!)
Thank you for your consideration.
If the above conditions are met, read on...
We are located in the heart of the Chianti region (Montespertoli, where some of the best wine is produced), 40 minutes from Florence, 1 hour from Pisa and Siena, 1,5 hours from Arezzo and 1,5 hours from the Tuscan Coast. We are a tiny family of 2 (myself, 50 , my son, 11) and our beloved rescue dogs. We are looking for 2 people who would like to spend between one and four months in Tuscany and help us with our dogs. We require someone to walk 3/4 dogs for 1,5 hours a day (in 1 o 2 outings), and to help with the garden (cleanup, watering, cutting grass). You will also be asked to feed the dogs on occasion. The rest of the time you are completely free to explore the area or enjoy the house and garden, at leisure.
Accommodation is offered in an independent, private and self contained cosy studio apartment (bedroom, kitchen, bathroom) in the back of our property. You will have your total privacy but are also welcome to join us for a drink or meal, or to spend time in our extensive garden if you wish.
We are located in the countryside with no public transport. You will need to have a car while you are here. You may also, if you wish, experience Tuscany by bicycle ; in this case we can arrange to take you shopping weekly. You would in any case need to provide your transport (car or bike).
Please contact us if you require additional information.
Thank you :)
