    Description

    We are living in a tourist area along the South-east coast of the Sicily. Here the sea is splendid, the water is crystal clear and clean, the beach of fine and golden sand. There are many reefs and natural reservoirs. We have a farm with lemon gardens, olives trees and vineyard close to Noto Marina. We are preserving the original features and natural character with stone walls, old well, a lot of different fruits and trees. We have some animals: one donkey, some bees and some chickens. We tried to respect the nature starting from the way to take energies. We have photovoltaics and solar panel. Hour agricultural activities is bio. We also rent our 6 accommodation to the tourist.
    We always need some small mason work.

    What else ...

    We are a family of 4 people (2 adults 50 years old about, 1 girl 16 years old, one boys 11 years old)
    We teach in the school. We have a 3 floor home with apartments sea side and two "Villas" in the country, near the beach, only 350 mt. The land around is about 20,000 sqm.
    The apartment and the two villas are for rent, normally weekly all year around. Half of our guests are from Germany the rest come from all Europe. We want try this barter. Little works for hospitality.

    We will offer you, like for our tourist guest : all furnished apartment, electricity, gas, water, linens, towels, air condition or heating, wi-fi area for free, 2 bikes. The apartment is sea view, 40 meters from the sand beach.
    We cant promise food because we offer a high value apartment. But you can try our wine...and the product of our land (lemon, almonds, olive oil,...)
    Or maybe trying we can change our opinion in the future and we can offer food. But in this moment we can't promise it.

    For now the work consist helping us with maintenance of house (painting gates, fences, walls, woods), cleaning and washing in the homes baby sitting, and some others little gardening works (wood cutting..). We have a lemons farm then we need harvest the lemons. .

    We look forward to your application...
