    Beschreibung

    As the rental season has started we can only offer rooms that are shared with other volunteers. So if you need a private room, please skip.

    For the moment I am finishing of a yoga hall, so most of the work is related to landscaping around the house (building dry stone walls), construction (carrying stones, painting, cleaning) and is quit physical. We are also pruning the 500 olive trees and you can help carrying the branches away and burn them. Cleaning off the terraces and roofs from the lava ashes is another great job.

    We are a Belgian/american couple living on a organic farm with vineyards, olive groves, fruit trees and a small vegetable garden. My 12 ha property is on terraced slopes with dry stone rock walls (without cement) on the Etna volcano and facing the Ionian sea and the mainland Calabria. The house in Presa is a 3 km walk from town. You will either be housed in the villa or in one of the tiny houses on the property. Depending on the number of volunteers you will have your own bedroom or share it with other volunteers.

    For the south American volunteers looking, please note you are welcome but I DO NOT provide residency at my home, so please skip.

    For those who would like to learn Italian, please skip. My Italian sucks, most of the conversations are in English.

    I very much welcome volunteers who are looking for a long term stay, especially during the winter months, however I evaluate every week the situation and only continue when both of us are happy with each others company/work. You need to be physically strong, so if you have back problems or any other state of mind that disables you from doing physical work, please skip.

    Please ensure you have travel insurance.

    We share daily lunch and sometimes dinner with you and work together. Sometimes I will take you on a trip to the volcano, beach or alcantara river. This depends on how long you stay with us and how good we get along. If you come during the right season (end september/october) you will learn how grapes are harvested and wine is made. Presa is a small village (80 inhabitants) and is 2 km away. Piedemonte is a bit bigger (3000 inhabitants) and 4 km away. We provide bycicles
    I communicate in English,French or Dutch so people who are coming to learn italian, best to skip me, my italian sucks.

  • Unterkunft

    Unterkunft

    I provide accomodation in a 4 bedroom villa where you will have your own room or share it, depending on the number of volunteers we have at that time. You live, cook, clean together and there is a common living space where in the evening you can socialize with each other. We don't provide TV. During high season there are only shared rooms but you can also sleep outside in tents or bring your campervan.

    I will buy food once a week (we'll go shopping together) and there is a budget of 5 euro per working day per person (25 euro per week per person), however you prepare your own meals together with the other volunteers.

    There is internet access. I expect an honest day's work with a MINIMUM of 25 hours a week. We work when the weather is good, which means that Saturday or Sunday are sometimes working days, especially when it rains during the week days. Keep in mind there's no public transportation on Sundays and limited on Saturday. I can't come to pick you up at the airport or in Catania, so please check the dates before booking your flights/trains and so on...

    The property is a 15 minute ride from the nearest beach and Linguaglossa is the starting point for trekkings on the north side of the Etna. There is public transport to visit Catania, Siracusa and the rest of the island.
