    Hey ciao !

    My name's Julia, I'm from Swizerland and two years ago, I left my country for a six months trip with workaway in Sicilia where I found love and peaceful. That's why I just decide to move and definitely live on this beautiful land with my boyfriend, Giuseppe, who was born and raised on this island. We are 29 and 30 years old.

    We are two nature and animals lovers so we decided to live in Giuseppe's country house that have a fantastic position with view on the lake of Piana degli Albanesi. We have a big field with a lot of different fruit trees and a garden that give us vegetables all along spring and summer. For us, our house is a little piece of heaven.
    We have a dog, an adorable australian sheperd that follow us everywhere we go. We also have five horses, two cats that we saved from the street and chickens.
    I work with horses and Giuseppe work at Palermo as a lawyer. If you want to visit the town, you can go down with him.

    Here, it's possible to do wonderful excursions. Our village is full of life with young parties and traditionals events. We are at thirty minutes from Palermo.

    We need help for the spring to do our organic garden, to water it, pick up the fruits, plant the plants. We also need a hand to look after our animals.

    When the weather is hot, we often go to swim in the lake of our village or at the sea. We like to do excursion and trekking, to visit new place in Sicilia, to visit art exposition, to go to the famous aperitivi and meet our friends. If you want to share all of this with us, it will be a real pleasure !
