    Description

    *In June July and August*
    *Preferably 2 couples*

    Hello hello hello! We are an Italian family of 4 (parents and 2 children): my sister (26) and I (23) moved out and our parents are looking for help with our family estate on the Mediterranean sea.
    The estate is on the seaside, in a place which is surrounded by pine&olive trees and 2 minutes away from the sea. Trips to Catania take 20 mins by car/bus and to Taormina 30 mins by train from Taormina. We speak Italian, English and a bit of Spanish. My parents are both active and passionate about cooking and eating good food. We provide all meals and we all eat together.
    We are looking for help with the maintenance of the outside area and of the inside too.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a traditional Italian family who still respects siesta times. You will learn about Italian culture, and Italian lifestyle and food. We are relatively close to Mount Etna, so you can also try some good wines. If you come in October/Novermber you may help us to pick olives and make olive oil!
