  • Description

    Description

    We are a B&B offering surfing and yoga, located in the south of Sicily, in the small village of Santa Maria del Focallo. This is a quiet beach town during summer months that lies on the back of a 15-kilometer long dune beach.

    We love animals and we have three lovely dogs and four very independent cats.

    We are a B&B and at the moment we are close down for the winter break and we need a couple to take care of our three beautiful dogs and four very independent cats.

    Our dog sitter for 3 years moved forward and now we need a new couple to take care of our dogs.
    This winter we will need from November 2019 to 26th March 2020.

    Our pets:
    The eldest dog, and alfa male despite its size, is Avaya. He was found by Ettore next to the garbage bin in front to the beach entrance, he was born probably just the day before, and abandoned in a box with all 5 his brothers. With the help of the volunteers from OIPA Modica, Ameriga fed them with powder milk and bottles, but nonetheless the puppies begun to die. After 3 weeks Avaya, who was the biggest one in the box, was the only survivor.
    Manera was found by Ettore at the beach a week later. On a warm afternoon Ettore was walking with Avaya and Flash (his husky who passed away in 2017) when Flash disappeared behind the dunes. After a while he came back with a super cute black puppy and brought him to Ettore with his approval! Manera is super active and loves to give kisses (just bring your nose close to his mouth if you are up for a slurp!).
    The last but not least of our dogs is Dea, and this time she found us and we fell in love with her at first sight!
    We've got also four cats: Shakti, Zombie, the blind little girl that loves play around with the dogs, Lakshmi and Parvati - we found this two girls this year and since that moment they became part of our lovely family and we started taking care of them!

    Your mainly tasks will be taking our dogs for a walk (generally twice a day), taking regular care of the house and garden.
    Driving licence is required :)

    Our place is located in the south of Sicily, in the small village of Santa Maria del Focallo. This is a quiet beach town during summer months that lies on the back of a 15-kilometer long dune beach. During winter, it becomes an isolated place that's why we prefer a couple instead of a single person.
