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" .
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.
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.
