Hi. We've been living in Italy for 16 years now. Buying, renovating and selling houses. We've now sold the last one and I've been told that under no circumstances am I to do another, by my dear wife. So, here we are, looking for something to do. We're very good with animals, I'm an ex dairy farmer, who's daughter had, and still has horses and ponies. Naturally, we've had our share of cats and dogs over the years too. Being a farmer, I'm also very practical, and there aren't many machines I haven't used. We're both avid gardeners, as well as loving to cook. We both speak Italian and of course English, with a bit of French. 

We're not afraid of new experiences, we moved out here not speaking a word of the language and not knowing anyone. In this time we've made many friends among the locals and are treated as such.

We've used Housecarers ourselves for some years now, and feel that we could be of benefit to someone, somewhere wanting a really good couple with tons of hands on experience.

Looking forward to meeting you soon.

Ian and Jo.
