  • Description


    Hi guys! My name is Doriana and I'm a fifty year old girl :)

    I decided to live in Sicily because of the stunning nature and this helps my artistic soul. I am an artist, with a house in Lido di Noto and a studio in Noto where exhibit my artworks. I also rent out the building next to my studio for which I may need a hand. The house where I live is a few steps from the beautiful beach and I have a large vegetable garden with orange trees and various local Sicilian plants. Will you help me? I have so many projects! I have had many experiences with Workaway and have met amazing people! I love the idea of the exchange of cultures and I will be happy to learn about your life, your ideas, music and cuisine! Unfortunately my English is not fluent so I would welcome lessons :)

    See you soon!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Walks on the beach! You can reach the famous Vendicari natural reserve at walking distance :) I will be in Noto a few times a week where you can enjoy the many bars to grab a coffee or a drink. Or you can also just relax with a good book ;) In terms of transport, in the holiday season there is a bus that can bring you straight to Lido di Noto, but we can discuss to see what works for you (I probably will be able to pick you up in Noto).
