I am Ivano (Italian) and with my wife Terhi (Finnish) we run a B&B in Rome countryside.
We promote sustainable tourism, organic farming and contribute to develope the economy of our little medieval town.
Our International family (kids are chileans) welcome all year long guests from all over the world.
As B&B host we don't like to rent rooms but provide and share experiences.
We need people to help us to develope and promote what is considered one of the most welcoming and friendly B&B in Rome since 2005. Volunteers will be welcomed in our expanded family but they need to be able to merge, bring energy and solutions; no problems. If they are only looking for a free and comfortable place to stay near Rome most problably didn't get the concept.
We don't like to talk of working hours per day. Five hrs/day per five days a week is a general parameter but we like results but even more we like to feel people taking care of us and our projects as much as we take care of them.
The concept "hours are done", expecially if attitude is unpleasant and results are not evident, doesn't work here.
Normally we tend to have more volunteers at the same time to develope specific projects. Expecially if they don't have specific skills they will be involved in all aspect of communal living and general running of the house.
Ivano is the handlyman taking care of maintanance (whenever he manage), building, cooking, touring and showing the guests the secret of his country. Terhi love interacting with guests and volunteers, gardening and take care of animals (that's why she married me).
Both of us like nature, hiking, and social activities.
We have a lot of projects to work on and share and we are looking for young people to develope.
We have been travelling a lot and confirm the quote "Travelling is the best investment you can do in your life!".
