    Hey ciao !

    My name's Julia, I'm from Swizerland and three years ago, I left my country for a six months trip with workaway in Sicily where I found love and peaceful. That's why I just decided to move and definitely live on this beautiful land with my fiance, Giuseppe, who was born and raised on this island. We are 29 and 30 years old.

    We are two nature and animals lovers so we decided to live in Giuseppe's country house that have a fantastic position with view on the lake of Piana degli Albanesi. We have a big field with a lot of different fruit trees and a garden that give us vegetables all along spring and summer. For us, our house is a little piece of heaven.
    We have a dog, an adorable australian sheperd that follow us everywhere we go. We also have six horses and a foal, two cats that we saved from the street and chickens.
    I work with horses and Giuseppe work at Palermo as a lawyer. If you want to visit the town, you can go down with him.

    Here, it's possible to do wonderful excursions. Our village is full of life with young parties and traditionals events. We are at thirty minutes from Palermo.

    When the weather is hot, we often go to swim in the lake of our village or at the sea. We like to do excursion and trekking, to visit new place in Sicily, to visit art exposition, to go to the famous aperitivi and meet our friends. If you want to share all of this with us, it will be a real pleasure !

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We will learn a lot from each other, this is sure !
    Here the life style is really alla Siciliana, the people like to speak with each other, have a coffee together, build their own stuff.
    Our house already is a mix of culture and we think that the more different culture there are, the better is !
