    Description

    We are a couple of retired people with a daughter living abroad. We like to visit her and also our friends but have four cats and our plants to water while we are away. Our house is situated a in a hamlet not far from Taormina Naxos but with only a few facilities.We have a garden and an independent beautiful cottage for our guests. We think it's the place i for people who like us love nature , walikng and experiencing the best of a small , friendly Sicilian community.
    We don't need real work during most of the year except for this November when it's time for harvesting our olives. We have only 50 old plants and might like to receive some help by someone younger than us or just as young in spirit as us.
