  • Description


    Looking for committed volunteers to help with basic maintenance and home housekeeping (at least 1 month stay).

    With this offer we are looking for workawayers who can help us in the general maintenance, interior painting and cleaning of our apartments located in Taormina.
    We need help in the house to clean, to re-paint the walls and do some general maintenance. You will help 5 days per week for 5 hours per day.

    Taormina is a small town on the east coast of Sicily, about midway between Messina and Catania, and very popular tourist destination since the 19th century.
    The village is perched on a cliff overlooking the sea. Besides the ancient Greek theatre, it has many old churches, lively bars, fine restaurants, and antique shops.
    Taormina is approximately a forty-five minute drive away from Europe’s largest active volcano, Mount Etna.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The main benefit is the opportunity to stay for free in a location where accommodation is usually very expensive. Also, staying in Taormina is a good opportunity to visit places near by, like Catania, Forza D'Agrò, Savoca, and spend some time on awesome beaches. Taormina is also a very interesting town from the historical and cultural viewpoint, a place where it is possible to enjoy beautiful art and architecture. The area also offers nice walks in an amazing landscape.

  • Help


    The help required from volunteers is mainly cleaning. General maintenance may be required and the tasks may change according to the needs. Additional help may be requested for doing laundry, watering the plants in the garden and the terrace, and bringing recycling materials to the bins (plastic, paper, glass).
