  • Description


    I am Maurizio, I am 43 years old, I was born and raised in Palermo, Sicily and I have lived for 2 years in Castelluzzo near the beautiful town of San Vito lo Capo, in a house inside a small residence near the sea and mountain where I offer a room with two beds and a private bathroom . I like to travel and my most important trips have been in Central America, from Mexico to Panama, I have been to Madagascar and in Europe I have had the pleasure of visiting Greece by sailing boat, I have been several times to Spain and to Fuerte Ventura, one of the Canary Islands, I have been to the Czech Republic, Poland and worked in Germany. I have a 2 year old girl named Frida. I like cooking and being in contact with nature. I have a field of olive trees in the center of Sicily in the province of Caltanissetta, where I produce olive oil and until last year I produced red and white wine that I have been producing in the province of Trapani since this year. I love music. I would like to improve my language skills by learning English and Spanish. I would like to learn how to cook international cuisine.I am starting to surf in our little Sicilian waves. I would like to practice some holistic disciplines including yoga, taichi and meditation. Thanks!
