my name is Claudio and I am glad to welcome you to our WorkAway's offer :).
Let me introduce my family: We are an Italian family and it is composed of Me, my mother (Maria Teresa) and my father (Carmelo). At this moment they live in the same place as our little hotel and I live in a flat nearby.
We live in a beautiful City, the name is Campofelice di Roccella and it is located in the province of Palermo (Sicily). We have also 3 good and kind dogs, they are chihuahuas: Chicco, Leo and Molly. The boys stay usually outside and the girl inside :)
We have one vacation houses on the Sicilian beach, it is composed of a complex of villas and a swimming pool in front of the beach. The sea is just 100 meters far. It's really amazing to live here!
What about me:
I am an entrepreneur. I got a diploma as an Industrial Electrotechnical Expert (electrical systems and industrial automation), and I am graduated in law, in tourism sciences. I am the owner of the family business and I also have an agency abroad in real estate and tourism training. I love working and studying marketing. I'm continually looking for new businesses, especially online ones.
I love photography. In the past, I worked as a photographer and video reporter. During free time I like to read books, spend times with enjoy relaxing on the beach, going to the movies, playing sports, hiking in the mountains, driving my quad in the forest
My mother works at the city hall. She loves singing so much. She is the number one to organise parties in the pool for guests. My father works with maintenance in the vacation houses. He loves watching television, movies.
My family is very open and fun. You can feel part of the family. People from southern Italy are generally more open, friendly and friendly people. We have already done many experiences by work away and every experience has been magnificent. We love having guests at home. With all of them, we are still in touch!!! :) We have a great family! :)
I hope you will be part of our family soon!

You can benefit from many things. If you are in love with the Italian language, or the Italian culture and the family atmosphere makes you feel at home, this is the best experience you can do.
We speak Italian very well because we studied it (unfortunately many Italians do not speak correctly :) ) - Both my parents and I do not have an accent because of the dialect.
The main thing that you will learn is precisely the Italian language in a fun way. You will also learn how to work in the tourism industry. You will learn how to manage a hotel, the customers, you will know how to take care of a swimming pool with the products and you will also learn how to cook many Italian dishes.
My family and I love cooking so much, in fact, I'm sure you'll love it so much.
We need some help with these kinds of activities:
- Helping with guests (check-in / check-out)
- Helping at home: cleaning and cooking
- General maintenance of our place: painting and gardening
- Dog sitting for our dogs
