  • Description


    Hi, I'm Marco, a freelancer with a beautiful family composed of my wife and my two children.
    I live in a large house surrounded by an orchard and 350 olive trees about 6 km from the town of Caltagirone. I have two dogs and several cats.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will discover the Sicilian culture starting from the flavors of our traditional cuisine. I would like my teenage children to discover new cultures and learn languages through conversation. We believe that cultural exchange is always a great source of wealth.
    We love cooking and receiving friends for barbecuing at home while listening to music.

  • Help


    We are looking for people who are able to do small masonry tasks and/or who know how to use the welding machine, cut wood for the fireplace and who can help us to clear some furniture from the household, and are able to do small jobs such as gardening or painting; and to help us harvest olives in October.

  • Accommodation


    We host - even a couple - in a room (with a double sofa bed, a wardrobe, a chest of drawers, a table, a TV) with an adjoining bathroom for exclusive use. The guest room has its own entrance which is separate from the rest of the house.
    Guests will be provided with the necessary things to prepare meals independently, using a small kitchen attached to the adjacent laundry room (commonly used) or, in hot weather, by using the external masonry kitchen.
    We are not vegans or vegetarians but we respect the choices of others. If you are a smoker we ask you not to smoke inside the house.
    IMPORTANT: if you are looking for a place to obtain Italian citizenship, we cannot help you and we cannot welcome you if you are not in order with the documents to stay in Italy during your entire stay.
