Our farm in sicily is about 15 hectares, is 3 km far from the small town of Calatafimi-Segesta and it is just 3 km at eastward from the ancient town of Segesta. You can see the ancient town and the theatre looking at the window of many rooms. We can give hospitality to young people who wish a work-holidays experience in Sicily: English speaking young people are preferred but French and Spanish ones are welcomed too. I am in my 60's, my soons come sometime as my wife.

We produce olive oil, honey and a little of wine, vegetables and fruits. The house is confortable, we have 3 rooms for guests and one for a voluntiers. Between October and November we accept many voluntiers for the harvest of olives. In Springer voluntiers work mainly with bees and honey while in summertime (especialy August) with guests.
Meals are served all together and are the same for all guests. I am a physicist so I speak English and a little French. Whenever is possible I like to live with my guest. I have good knowledge of the Sicilian west side territory and if you like I can drive small group by Land Rover to discover unusual archaeological places on the mountains around Segesta.
I am looking a voluntier for a long period able to survive alone in the farm. He/she has to maintain the house during my absence and have care of eventually (rare) guests.
