We have recently rennovated an old farm cottage in central Italy (Basso Lazio) and are settling into a country life with two lovely dogs. The house is rennovated to high standards with modern conveniences set in 4 acres of land with an outlook towards the castle of Roccasecca. The dogs, who were abandoned 'up the hill', live outside, are friendly and essentially independent apart from needing to be fed daily as well as enjoying a walk or three. You need a car to explore the surrounding area that is full of old villages, historic sites, great mountain walks, history and the famous Abbey of Monte Cassino. You can take a train to Rome in 1.5 hours. If you cycle then its fabulous cycling country - lots of hills if you want them. We are looking for someone who can keep the house in good order (we are currently in the process of landscaping) and ensure the dogs are fed.
