    Hi, my name is Armando, I'm 57 years old and live in Zafferana, in the protected area of ​​Etna’s Regional Park. My home is surrounded by the forest, and has an amazing view, but it’s only 1 km away from the city center. Zafferana is located between Catania and Taormina and it’s chosen as a base for those who want to visit Mount Etna.
    I work with an online rental platform, renting two rooms of the house for tourists.
    I have a garden and a small orchard and vegetable garden where I grow fruits, and vegetables for self consumption.
    I love mountain, the sea, trekking, cooking, and antique furniture restoration. I'm an active person who likes "doing".

    I am looking for volunteers that are open minded, friendly, clean, tidy, and who can make tourists feel welcome.

    Volunteers with the sole purpose of vacation are NOT welcomed.
