  • Description


    We are a family of 5, myself Barbara (42), Francesco (48) plus Niccolò (9), Lisa (7) and Nina (18 months, born in June 2017). We moved a few years ago to beautiful Siclily, in the city of Siracusa and its little jewel island of Ortigia (Unesco site).

    We own a space right in the center of the island which is a restaurant and sometimes a cultural center aimed to support art and culture.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Sicily is a gem and has a lot to offer to people willing to witness 3000 years of history and cultural identity. ORTIGIA is a main touristic location with lots of people, activities and positive energy.
    We will share a bit of our Italian tradition and habits and our babies will overwhelm you of joy and craziness.

  • Help


    We are looking for someone willing to play with our three kids that would feel happy teaching them some English, Piano or Drums; sometimes we might need little help for general maintenance and in that case we ask for it clearly once we get in contact. When our guest has good artistic or cousine skills sometimes we like to engage him/her with our project as well.

  • Accommodation


    We have a little private suite-room with its own kitchen and bathroom and 2 other rooms with queen size beds and balcony which share the same bathroom. On top of the house there is a little living-room and a terrace where you can enjoy the sea which is just couple meters away from the house. There is a common house-kitchen as well to cook yourself.
    The house has a total of 4 rooms that can be occupied by artists or paying guests as well.

    We live couple blocks away from there.
