  • Description


    Hello curious Workawayer,
    We are Joel and Angela ambitious to get to know you.

    Our project is located in southern Italy, surrounded by mesmerizing views of nature and the clear blue sea.
    Two years ago, we decided to step our foot permanently into the village where we currently are. This particular place has particular building, well, actually ruin, which we absolutely fell in love with and took as challenge to restore it.
    It is large, majestic and cries out for it to be saved from crumbling down. For it to be in shape we are looking for first of all, motivated and in benefit skilled/experienced Workawayers.

    --We are always very keen to find carpenters and masons, so if you are one, superb!--
