  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of four: dad, mum Simona, a girl (19) and a boy (12).

    We spend some time in our city, Catania, and a lot of time in the woods, in the mount Etna, where we have a nice home to repair and renovate, more chestnut, oak, walnut trees to care; there is a lot of work in the garden and in the woods, and much things to do!

    From april to november we need help on Mount Etna; when we are in the woods it's difficult we go everyday to the town, so if you like nature and woods, horticulture and giving help on building construction, it can be a great experience. The town of Catania and the sea are at 50 minutes from the woods.

    Simona is also involved in book conservation, bookbinding art projects, teaching, and sometime she needs help with book conservation or bookbinding projects. If you are interested only for this part of project, please tell us in your mail.

    We can accommodate 1 workawayer in Catania, but 2 or a little family (with a van) if we are in the woods.

    We ask to be part of our family during the time you will stay with us, so help in the kitchen and at home is always welcome!

    Contact us for more information.

    Accommodation

    It depends: if we are in Catania you will have a reserved room where children use to play, and share the bathroom with us. You have to clean your space and use your personal computer (internet connection free, obviously); if we are in our house in the woods, you will probably have to share a room with one of our sons and also you will have to share the bathroom with us.
