This profile was opened 4 years ago under the name of "Where To project" from the idea of Nadia and Giulia, two girls from Oria, a beautiful town in the south of Italy. In 3 years we hosted around 100 people from all over the world.
Right now things are a bit different because 3 new people belong to my life: my husband Fabio and our babies Vera, 3 years old and Livio, 1 year old. We moved in another countryhouse where we would like to invite volunteers to work with us to diffent things. We will need people helping us to make the garden, paint the house and helping with house maintenance and babysitting.
Join us if you like peaceful life in the countryside, riding bike, and take part of the slowlife of a little town.
After many experiences with volunteers, we believe that currently couples or families with kids are good for us.
