    My name is Giuseppina and I'm 40 years old. I'm open minded and sociable person, I like nature and animals but also I'm a city girl. I was born in Sicily and lived here till I was 14 years old than I moved to Turin where I lived there for 26 years. Nine months ago I moved again to Sicily in San Leonardello where my mother trasformed our old family house in a farmstay. The farmstay is located in the countryside between the sea and the mount Etna at 20km from Catania, and it is surrounded by 12 acres of Lemons, Oranges, Clementines and Pomegranate trees. We are organic farmstay.
    Here I work with my mother Teresa and my aunt Nuccia that helps only for the cooking, really good at sicilian food.

  • Help


    We would need helps us for general gardening (trees, grass, etc.), with initiating the vegetable garden, building the hen house, etc. We need help with the cooking as well and welcoming the tourists when necessary. There are always many things to do, and basically the idea for us is that the helper becomes part of the family during the length of its stay so that he/she adapts him/herself and do a little bit of everything. I'm willing to improve my English so if I appreciate an language exchange.
