  • Description


    Beautiful orange and olive trees garden, in a property of 50 ha in the Sicilian country, east side, between Catania and Syracuse. The farm produces oranges and olives turned in a very good olive oil, and breeds horses.

    There are also tre apartments and a small villa with a a pool that I rent as b&b.

    10 horses and three dogs live in the area reserved for them.

    My place is very close to a small fishermans village called Brucoli that gets very animated during the summer season. There are many nice waterfront restaurants a nd bars, a gas station, pharmacy, and a supermarket.

    Augusta is also very close, and in twenty minutes of driving you can reach Catania (where there's the airport) or Siracusa. Noto is also kind of close (40 minutes) with it's beatiful beaches inside the reserve of Vendicari and the charming baroque palaces.

    Other attractions, like mount Etna (where it's possible to ski during the winter) or Taormina are reachable in an hour.

  • Help


    I'm looking for 1 or 2 person (it can be a couple, or two men) ive a hand with horse breeding in the farm, mowing the loan and removing weeds, helping with check in and out or giving informations to the tourists ( english mother tongue or very well spoken required and french if possible but not a must). Three months at least, not less than this period.

    I would like to raise a vegetable garden to support the hospitality daily request of greens so the candidate should possibly have experience in agricolture or permaculture and love animals. I ask for 4/5 hours of daily work depending on what is there to do and to be divided between morning and afternoon.

    I offer the use of a bycicle to move around and reach Brucoli that is very close. Just outside of property (ten minutes walking) there is the local bus stop with service toward Syracuse and Catania.

    In these two towns there are many archeological sites or musueums to visit. Catania is very lively and full of nightlife places to spend spare time.
