    Description

    Hi,
    my place is located on the south slope of Etna, a few kms away from Nicolosi village. In the place there is a a small vineyard and a garden with different veg depending on the season, e.g. aubergines, onions, beans, tomatoes, pumpkins, courgettes, peppers, broccoli, cabbages etc, plus e few fruit trees as peach, pear, cherry, apricot, apple, almond. A double room with breakfast is offered, and would need general help in the field and in the house depending on the season. During spare time you could visit Etna, Catania and the surrounding. When free I'll be happy to show you around, bring you up on the Etna, exchange language etc.
    You may be helping with flexible schedule, I mean during mornings or afternoons or some full days with some other completely off, either together or on your own, and depending on the season either in the field or in the house and generally it's a good mix of all the above...( plus basic participation on day to day stuff in order to keep the place tidy and clean).
