Hi! I'm Vincenza and I live in the countryside of Polignano A Mare (Apulia) since 7 years, with my lovely cats and chickens. It's a very peaceful place for who loves nature and animals, respecting everything and everyone.
My everyday goal is to live in harmony with nature and animals (humans too!)
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
I'll be glad to spend time with you, teaching italian Language and culture (if you are not italian) , showing you a different lifestyle (if you generally live in the city). I can carry you around visiting the town of Polignano, Conversano, Alberobello...
I can teach you to prepare something typical like "focaccia", "panzerotti", "pizza", "gnocchi di patate", "pomodori sott'olio". I can also teach you how preparing bread, vegan cakes, seitan, marmelade from the fruit of my trees, and also how to make soap with olive oil, toothpaste with clay. And also I can show you some edibles wild herbs.
I need different kind of help: cleaning the house, painting the walls or the gates, general maintenance with eletricity staff and water staff, care of animals (cleaning and fixing the hens house), gardening, harvesting fruits or olive (based on the month)...
Italian, English, Spanish, basic French
You can sleep in the guest room with three beds . There is one bathroom only, shared.
I would like to share meals time with you , but if you prefere not you can use the kitchen for cooking your own meals.
I'm vegan so I can offer you only vegan food.
In your time off you can enjoy the quiet of the countryside on the amaca that is in the garden. You can also go to visit the town of Polignano (we can go together if you like) and stay on the beach. There is no public transport for reaching my place but I can take you in the town, or sometimes you can use my car. We can go around together or if you prefere I can leave you in the train station so you can also go to visit other town or city (like Monopoli, Lecce, Bari)
