    *️️️️️*️️️️️*️️️️️WE NEED HELPERS FOR THE SECOND HALF OF MAY*️️️️️*️️️️️*️️️️️

    We spend the Summer in a traditional nineteenth century country house, revamped (mainly, but non only) for touristic purposes. Its occupants may be Diana, the originator of this project, her daughter Noemi, or me, Sergio.
    The whole property consists of 3,5 hectares: a grove, fruits trees, some olive trees, a garden and a other small outbuiding (used in the past as stables) that we'd like to rebuild in the future.

    We run a B&B in Summer, and every year a heavy dose of maintenance is needed. We usually operate at the beginning and at the end of the touristic season (May and September). We're looking for help for 4-5 hours a day, providing food and a bedroom with private bathroom. We need help in all the area of the property, inside and outside: gardening, farming, carpentry, masonry and other fields may be involved time by time.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We're all very curious about different cultures and very keen to share our stories and experiences. We think that the biggest opportunity given by living with strangers is not only to get in contact with different thoughts from our owns, but also to see how these may reflect in basic, everyday life.
    Everyone of us has his own set of skills and knowledge, so your experience may differ from the one of others, but we all believe in enriching eachother with different visions of this world!

    The place is located 2 km from a small town (San Vito dei Normanni) and 7 km from beautiful beaches (Torre Guaceto). Overall the property is perfectly located for anyone willing to explore historical towns and natural areas.
    We can pick you up from the train station nearby and show you the zone, and we'd be glad to spend our free time with you, cook together and enjoy the peace of our Home.
