  • Description

    Description

    We are a French couple of 60 years.
    We live in Sicily, Piedimonte Etneo, on the park of Etna where we manage one B and B of 4 rooms in summer.
    We need help to restore a beauty in our garden which suffered a lot in winter.
    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:
    I can pick you up at Fiumefreddo di Sicilia station.
    We live on the top of a hill: the nearest village Presa is 2 km aways, Piedimonte 5.
    In your free time you need to walk or be flexible to wait until I go to town to be dropped.
    From Piedimonte, you can access Catania by bus 4,50 euro.
    Based on our agreement, I can also give you a tour of the region.
    Each workawayer is different: I let everyone their freedom to choose what they want to do.
    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.
