    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My house is located in a very interesting area, very close to the archeological site of Segesta, with its Greek temple and theatre. The town is half way between Palermo and Trapani, with their excellent cultural and touristic chances. In the surrounding hills there are many excursion tracks and great sightseeing spots.

  • Help


    What I need is somebody who can help me with some little maintenance tasks for the house I live in. I also need some help with gardening, building dry-stone walls and harvesting olives and grapes. I'll gladly have somebody arrange for a chillout space for me and my hosts to enjoy. I would like to do a synergistic garden and others differnt kind of garden. I'm also interested in hosting somebody who could help me improve my linguistic skills, especially in English and Spanish.

  • Accommodation


    The house is in the countryside of Calatafimi Segesta which is called Pianto Romano, 10 minutes away from the town centre. My house is surrounded with plants and trees, it is a one flat house and it's got one bathroom, a kitchen, a living room, a store room, a laundry and a very nice patio. I own a lovely dog and a cat. Workawayers are allowed to grab whatever food they will find in my storeroom and in the backyard, and cook it autonomously. We'll have the chance to share meals. However it's important to keep the house set and clean.

    What else ...

    I'll be living in the house as well, and my father will come and visit sometimes. Should it be necessary, I'd be glad to drive the Workawayers to the town centre with my own car. Several transport solutions are available from Calatafimi to the other towns and points of interest.
