We are Tiziana , Pietro (a couple) and Mariano (Pietro's father) and we live in Apulia in a big old farmhouse (Masseria).
I am an Italian teacher for foreigners, Pietro is a chemist and Mariano is a pensioner and he practices fishing and hunting. We are doing some renovation and gardening work and we could really do with some help.
We have 2 dogs and a nice cat. We love animals and nature, we like to eat organic food and local products and we are very careful with the food we buy. We have a vineyard, lots of olive trees and fruit trees (cherries, apricots, figs, plums etc.).
We like to host friends and share our big place, we love good company. Pietro is a good cook and I like to prepare cakes and learn new recipes. Sometimes we would like to have lunch or dinner with our guests, we could prepare something for them or we could cook together.
The area where we live is beautiful surrounded by a small protected wood of ancient oaks. But we are also very close to the village: 10 minutes on foot or 5 minutes by bike. We have a bike for you!

You can learn from us a bit of history about the farm (Masseria), what it was and what was done in these places. They could learn to recognize some plants or birds that are in this area. You definitely could learn some Italian (if you are not Italian). We would also like to learn something from our guests and share experiences and knowledge.
We believe a lot in the cultural exchange that Workaway offers to all of us.
We need help with general maintenance, restoration of antique furniture, gardening, tree pruning. It may need to feed the dogs or spend some time with them, they are very sweet. Everything also depends on one's attitudes and abilities, we like to talk to guests and decide together what to do. Tips will always be appreciated!

We offer a part of the Masseria, completely independent, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen. A giant garden, the possibility to relax and walk in the wood. Food is not included, but you could take our fruits or vegetables from the garden when is possible. When I have time I like to prepare cakes with and for our guests.
The nearest airport is Bari (30 min) and Brindisi (1h30). There is a train station (10 minutes from here) with direct lines from Bari. Buses go to the beach at Polignano a Mare, 40 minutes away. From here you can easily visit Matera, Alberobello, Polignano a Mare, Monopoli, Ostuni and other wonderful places in Puglia.
