    Description

    born in sicily, geologe , married to a german physiotherapist, father of 3kids, my passion to nature became a hobby and now a job, growing almonds and capers - high quality food in two of the most beautiful corners of Sicily, until now it is almost just me while my wife is staying with our three kids but i cannot make it anymore on my own.

    the plants are getting bigger and i need some helpful hands above all for the harvest. first of all for the almonds between approx the 5 until 25 of agost,. you need to love the heat, getting up early and be willing to move because beating the almonds down the trees with long bamboo sticks and then carrying boxes from here to there is quite an exercise but you can than look forward for a nice swim or relax on our place. we're quite in an isolated but very panoramic place without public transfer but of course will bring you to the beach or so on in free moments.

    Accommodation

    on the almond plantation we have two little wooden wagons , one divided into bathroom and kitchen the other in 2 tiny bedrooms, one would be my room , one your's ..or you want to sleep in a tent which we have, that's fine as well

    we will share 3 times a day meals together, we like to cook with 0 km organic ingredients, we are open to taste also other cultural food, for who loves and knows cooking.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    as i said above i'm glad to help you to get to the beach and see a little bit of the region. in august also my family will be around and often some friends with the tent, we do pizza in our outside oven, cool off in the little swimming pool, with the 3 kids it doesn't get boring and might be also good to have some help . so i like to work quite hard and enjoy life at the same time.
