    Description

    PLEASE.have a look on the calendare before applying!!!I cannot host for july an august!

    We are Micòl (39), Arturo (8), Cosimo (5).We are living in the countryside since four years.We would like to change life.We own a small piece of land (2500m2)which at the moment is almost wild.
    We would like to obtain some food from it but we don't want to exploit it and we want to preserve the diversity of life it hosts(we eat a lot of wild herbs from it at the moment).We would like never enter in supermarket again.
    At the moment we are in a transition.We still buy our food (but we bake our bread! ).

    We live in a small and simple house in the hill on Cassibile, 10km from siracusa, near the "Riserva Naturale di Cavagrande del Cassibile".
    Details of the works we would like to do are below.apart from this we consider 'cleaning' something that is on eveyone who lives the house.
    we are very curious about other cultures so we willl be glad if you want to share our life when not working and at the same time we will manage to give you your free and independent time.

    We have water only from the rain so we ask to our hosts to be very careful in using it.
    We like to travel and we love to share with other people our experiences.We love to host the world in our family also because we are an home schooling family so we are grateful that our kids can learn from life and not from the books.
    We want to host people:
    -who understand that whe are sharing the house so we prepare the meals and we clean common spaces togheter or with turns
    - who tries to respect and use carefully food, water, electricity by not wasting them

    Italian speakers are very much welcomed from my kids!!!
    We don't smoke and prefer to host no smokers.
    We don't have animals.
    Have a look on the calendar before applying, please.
    I HAVE NOT TIME TO ANSWER TO ALL THE E MAILS.PLEASE APPLY ONLY IF YOU REALLY ARE INTERESTED AND FIT THE REQUEST (WORK EXPERIENCE)THANKS A LOT!!!
