  • Description


    En ce moment, je recherche des personnes qui parlent français parce que je veux apprendre cette langue.
    right now I'm looking for people who speak French because I want to learn this language.

    I have been renovating a large villa in which I have created a Bed & Breakfast. Not far from the city, but it has a slightly country style.
    My house is on a hill just 900 meters from the sea, I have a large garden in Aci Castello (a small city just outside of Catania, 10 km).

    7 nice and affectionate cats live with me.

    I'm looking for young, personable English or French speakers (multilinqual is even better) to assist in overseeing maintenance and the remodeling of our garden space,marketing, as well as general guest services.

    My B&B is LGBT+ friendly. As a volunteer, you would live in my B&B and enjoy lunch and often the dinner with my team and me. My B&B runs 24/7 but as a volunteer you would be expected to work no longer than 5-6 hours a day/5 days a week. I take frequent trips into the city center during which my partner and I love to show our workaway volunteers around.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here, you will have the opportunity to better undestand Sicilian culture as well as European culture through our many international guests. You can also take pride in helping to create a new landmark on the east coast of Sicily.

  • Help


    I am looking for a young (better group of friends) personable English or french speakers (multilingual is even better) to assist in overseeing maintenance and the remodeling of our garden space, concierge service, purchasing, marketing, as well as general guest services (answering phone, responding to online inquiries, and negotiating sales).

  • Accommodation


    Accommodation is a room with a private bathroom, possibly shared with one other workaway volunteer. The location is close to the city (accessibile by public transportation or bike), but far enough away to ensure a feeling of the country side with views of the sea and a lack of chaos.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The area where my B&B is located is called Aci Castello, named after the thousand year old castle that sits along the coast just 900 meters down the hill. For first time travelers, I recommend that you get comfortable with the small sea-side Sicilian village first as there is a lot to experience, from fresh coastal food to inexpensive boat tours.
