  • Description

    Description

    Hello! I’m Alessio. I’m 31 years old. I live with my sister Veronica (40). We have a large garden and so much to do. We have a small company, building and refurbishing rigid, inflatable boats. We are simple people, quiet and love nature. We love open spaces, optimism and being happy.

    We live in a large structure that we are still renovating. We have many things to do concerning the apartments, the garden and our work on the rafts. Our project is very large and still developing. We welcome people who can help us every day, with refurbishment work, cleaning, ordering the house, fixing the garden, moving objects, and to work and live together. We are fortunate to live in a beautiful place, so there are plenty of moments for relaxation and leisure time. We will be able to arrange trips to visit a very beautiful, varied and diverse part of Italy.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This is an example of work to be done: we have to fix the apartments, the garden to keep clean, keep order in the house, give a hand to clean in the kitchen, helping to move the material in the garden, chop wood, help with our work on rafts, distemper, paint, work is really varied and is decided at the time.

    There is so much to do here and we are happy to accommodate people eager to share with us our daily lives.
    Normally welcome people for 2 weeks in some cases, when we were all very well and the time together is wonderful, two weeks become three weeks or more...
    Being together is to share with travellers our lives, our work and our leisure time. Learn new skills, to share space, visit a beautiful region, to learn words in Italian, learn recipes and local dishes - to essentially learna part of our culture.

  • Help

    Help

    There is a lot of gardening to do here, and occasionally there are heavy objects to be lifted. We work on small and rigid, inflatable boats. The help required is satisfying, productive and in a relaxed pace.

    We welcome helpers who are available to help in a home, to keep it clean and tidy, in the garden to cut the grass and collect leaves, and in the workshop for small works on our boats.

    We would love to host Workawayers with these skills: carpentry, iron work, welding for small trolleys, construction for the house, blacksmith skills for railings, woodcutting and farming for the greenhouse. And also we welcome native English speakers for help with our grammar and conversation.

    What else ...

    We live near the sea, in the countryside, outside of Sarzana. It is a very beautiful and characteristic part of Italy and there are plenty of places to visit: Cinque Terre, Pisa, Lerici, Portovenere, Carrara (famous for its marble quarries and the Academy of Fine Arts), Viareggio, Lucca, Firenze, Sarzana, La Spezia, Genova, Parma etc. We are 1 km from the seaside and we have mountains nearby as well. We can teach you how to cook Italian dishes, arrange sightseeing tours to discover the beautiful parts of Italy, etc. We go on trips together and have picnics and barbecues both at home and elsewhere. We can show you the surrounding area where you will admire the beauty of Italy. You can also learn a bit of Italian and learn skills for small boats.
    We have 3 dogs: a German Shepherd, one Labrador and one Australian Shepherd.
