We have a country house in a small village close to Trapani, about 15 Km away. The area is very peaceful surrounded by olive trees and vineyards. There is an endless beach 5 minutes away by car where one could also walk. The village is well served with shops, pharmacy, postal office, bank and even a church! It would be ideal for a couple or one person.
For professional reasons we are unable to live there but we really love our dogs Luna, Valentina and Lilli along with the 3 black and white cats and we are very concerned about them being alone, with no human presence.
For this reason we are offering the dependence of the house where you can comfortably live. The fully furnished, one bedroom house with a pleasant leaving room is completely independent with its own kitchen and bathroom. There is also a heating system and air conditioning. You also have access to a large patio.
The animals are very friendly and quiet. All they need is to be fed and a human presence.
You can stay at your convenience. The longer the better! Even if we are not there, we have family and friends living close by and we can always support you when needed.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
The Sicilian countryside is always the best place to learn Italian. The area is very interesting, Trapani is known for its production of excellent sea salt. The scenery is breathtaking. There is abundant history in the surroundings due to the several colonizations that have taken place during the course of the Italian history. Within a small distance you can find Greek ruins, Baroque buildings, Phoenician traces and Byzantine testimony to name a few...
There are also many water sports one can partake in such as windsurfing, kite surfing and sailing. Additionally, there are many beautiful walks one can take in the surrounding mountain ranges.
You can also learn about olive cultivation and the process in which olive oil is made.
Food is the most genuine and exquisite you will find at a very affordable price!
Feeding and taking care of 3 cats and 3 dogs. Little help in the garden at your discretion.
