  • Description


    I am a 60 years old professionist.i live with oscar my dog.I live in the center of palermo,in a beautiful building from the 15 century.i work all day and I travel much so i like to have people who take care of my garden when i am away and can help me with the house maintenence , fixing broken objects,repairing chairs,doors anything that needs renewing. In the weekend i often go to a farm near the cefalu’ sea,and i need much help there with the garden and the cleaning...People with some tecnical skills are prefered.I can offer a room with bath or depending on the period,the whole appartment that is next to mine.I need people who can use their hands and their head,which are able to organize themselves alone,as well as share a meal and work with others. helping hours are flexible.so we can agree on short or long days.or no helping days at all.this can be good if you want to travel around and take long weekends.it will depend on the project for the week. . At the moment,june 2021,i need help mostly with cleaning, in palermo but also in the farm.. and taking care of maintenance.some help with the garden .I can t help South Americans with citizenshi and i prefer people wanting to stay for long periods..i also prefer people with manual skills, i am not interested in people cooking neither to learn a language. If you cna drive a car much help would be needed in the farm where is a wonderful landscape but is far from public transport.
