We live in the countryside on the hills of the beautiful region of Abruzzo, near the village of Morro D'oro, 10 Km from the beach and 40 Km from the highest mountains of the Apennines.
We are a family of 5, myself, my daughter, my mother, my father, and my brother. I work as an animal groomer in my own shop. In my free time I like to take care of the vegetable garden, fruit trees and our animals, we have chickens, gooses, cats, dogs and a donkey. My father, since he is retired, takes care of the garden, trees and animals full time, my mother, also retired, takes care of the cleaning of the house and cooking.
All the components of the family speak English, my mother and father also a little of German, and my brother a little of French.

Here you can benefit from enjoying the Mediterranean style of living, relaxed and good food.
You can learn gardening, how to grow vegetables, take care of fruit trees and animals. With my father you can learn general maintenance, from mechanical equipment, construction, plumbing and wood works there is nothing that he cannot fix himself. If you are interested you can also learn Italian cooking.
we are looking for a volunteer to baby sit our 16 months old daughter named Iside.
She likes staying in the outdoors with the animals, also we would like the volunteer to bring her in the playing grounds, to the beach, and around in general.
