    Hi there

    We are a recently retired couple. Fabrizio is Italian and I’m Irish (Yvonne). We both took early retirement in July 2020 to pursue our dream of moving to Sicily. We’ve just recently bought a wonderful house with a pool and a large garden, only 800m from the sea and beautiful beaches.

    We love Sicily, love good food, and enjoy the sunshine. We can provide accommodation and meals to someone who’d be happy to get stuck in to general work in both the house and the garden.
    The garden is totally overgrown and will require some pretty physical work. We’ll have builders working on the house but are hoping to be involved in doing whatever we can ourselves (with your help).
    We are also planning to create a website & blog, your help would be great for this as well.

    Our house is 2km outside the seaside town of Pozzallo, a short bike ride away. It’s a vibrant town all year round. Bigger towns of Ispica and Modica are a bus ride away.

    A great opportunity to learn Italian, enjoy some authentic Sicilian life and see a neglected property brought back to life.

    Sadly we can not help Workawayers looking for residency.

    We cannot provide you with any insurance while staying with us nor with travel insurance, so we advise you to take care of that matter on your own. However, we do our best to provide a safe environment to avoid any accidents from happening in the first place.

    Thank you for taking the time to read our profile :-)


    UPDATE 16/4/22
    It seems we have our Workawayers till the end of August
    Currently, we are not able to do planning for the following months but if you are interested please let us know.

    Thanks for reading
