    Description

    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.
