We are a French couple of 60 years. We live in Sicily, on the park of Etna where we manage one B and B of 4 rooms the summer.We need help to restore a beauty in our garden which suffered a lot. The complete family consists of 2 cats, "Yume and Neko", a dog " Le chien, ma Chérie"and 5 hens "Téméraire, Froussarde, Moimoi, Rouquine et Rigolotte" .
NOTE: the nearest village is 5 km aways, no public transportation.If you want to go to the village in your free time you need to walk or be flexible to wait until I go to town every day to be dropped. From the village, you can access Catania by bus 4,50 euro. If you have a driving licence and are a good driver, I will lent you my car: I did it for Vince, Virginya and Clemens
FOOD: I provide simple meals. We eat pasta and vegetables daily here but not meat every day. Tea and coffee is provided: if you want soft drinks or wine, you need to buy yourselves. I cook and I expect you to help me in clean up after meals.
Please, try to be respectful in my house and if you need something ( from the fridge or else) ask me first.
Feel free to contact me if you have any question.
Our French culture allied to our life in Sicily could interest the volunteers. We try to speak English, Italian, Spanish
