Hi, I'm Simone and my family and I live on the slopes of Etna, we love nature and take care of our animals: two dogs (Specter and Belle), and our chickens.
We would like to expand and make our garden more beautiful and take care of the countryside that we already have, but which we can hardly care for my father Gaetano and my sister Gaia.
If you like being in the middle of nature but with an eye to comfort and the possibility of having a lot of free time to go around and have a nice holiday I think you will find yourself very comfortable with us.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
You will live immersed in Sicilian and Italian culture, and you can visit beautiful places around Sicily and having two consecutive free days you can move wherever you want.
Besides, my family and I will be happy to share knowledge with you, and especially Italian.
You will meet many people who probably have different points of view from yours or do things that no one in your country does, including cooking.
I also love my land and when I am free I will take you with me to places that are usually a little more difficult to reach in order to return home with a complete view of Sicily.
The main help required are;
-teach something you are competent in.
-Help around the house like (cleaning, fixing small things)
-Help in the countryside
I just ask for a little flexibility as the tasks are not so much but varied, the help hours change by the day but you will always have Sunday free.
During the week you will not do tasks more than 15 hours.
