I am Diletta, daughter of Ornella and Antonio. I live on the lake of Garda and usually help my mother practising her english and at home as we have a big house with a big garden, once the field of my grandfather. We have been renting three small new apartments to tourists since may, the activity is super new and indipendent: we won't need your help working here. The apartments have a terrace and a swimming pool that you can use while you're here if it's not used by guests, but we live in the bigger red house that you see in pictures and here we need your energies: as my mother speaks only a bit of German and English she would like to improve her skills to be able to welcome guests properly. We live with my grandmother (1st floor) and my brother and we have two dogs and some chickens and ducks. We are looking for a volunteer from september as i will leave backpacking the south east of Asia and I would like to find a good soul to replace me. My parents are super welcoming and they will treat you like a son/daughter, I am pretty sure.
Here you can learn something about the south Italy culture: my father comes from Apulien and can make an cook Orecchiette, but he's the classical type of man that can make practically everything, he has also a small "museum" in our tavern with memories of his past as a police man. You could learn (or teach us) how to do compost and how to grow some vegetables taking care of the garden. My mother has a passion for Orchids and together with my grandmother they make jam and tomato sauce. We are a simple family and we like to share and to learn from travellers. You can learn how to cook Italian food and take care of chickens/ducks.
Dieses Projekt schließt möglicherweise den Umgang mit Kindern ein. Mehr Informationen findest du in unseren Verhaltensregeln und Tipps hier.
The help required is helping my mother improving her English/German skills maybe one hour a day and in general helping her at our family home including tasks such as picking vegetables/working in the garden with her. The tasks are various and you are not supposed to work hard, but to be flexible! Imagine the type of help you could were asked by your parents!
