In September I am looking for someone to water my vegetable garden for 5 days. 15 km from SIENA (Tuscany)
We initially registered for three days at Helen's place but decided right away to stay for 10 days. Helen is a wonderful person and an awesome host! She supplied us with vegetables and herbs from her garden, spring water and tips about the region. We loved the evening chats with her and the peaceful and friendly atmosphere she radiates. When we had to leave, it felt like leaving a friend.
Her appartement is simple but romantic and clean. We liked it a lot!
We had a real great time at Helen's place, located in a lovely tiny village in the heart of Tuscany countryside. Half an hour driving to Siena, 50 minutes to San Giminiano. Helen's a great host, she recommended us some places to visit and good restaurants around. The studio is clean and tidy, well-furnished and close to gardens and forest. Perfect to run away from the crowd of Florence!
I have a degree in Physics and work as a scientific translator, freelance, from Tonni by internet. I try to tread lightly on the Earth.

Initially, I am looking for garden/cat minders for 19-23 September 2012. Then maybe I shall branch out ...
