  • Description


    I am finishing to renovate the beautiful house in which I live and work, and need your help and your (good) tastes to improve the place.
    Although there is a cleaner I also need regular help in the house, for going to the fresh food market, help in the kitchen (I cook a lot) and other usual tasks.
    The house is right on the sea and situated in the most attractive part of the island of Ortigia in Siracusa.
    There is a beach from which you can swim literally downstairs.

    I am a French software developer, and have offices in the same building.

    You will get a double bedroom with its own bathroom.

    As it is also about living together, I will want to talk to you through phone, Skype, or WhatsApp (not just messaging, but proper talk) before accepting or not your request. I can speak Italian, English, French and a bit of Spanish. So if you have no way to be reached, or are not able to communicate in any of these languages, don't lose your time.

    You will be able to enjoy the beauty of Siracusa at its best as we are located in the heart of the ancient city/island: Ortigia.
    The sea and a small beach are at our feet. In an half-hour break and you can have a swim, dry in the sun and eat a marvellous almond granite.
    I have ben told the cooking and the life in the house are quite enjoyable...

    You won't need transport as you will be in the heart of Ortigia. If you want to visit the Greek theater or the museum Paolo Orsi there is an electric bus picking you down the house.
