Help with cleaning and maintaining an apartment in central Naples.
I mostly use the apartment as a studio, but the apartment is big so it is nice to have someone helping.
The apartment is in the heart of the old city so it is ideal for exploring Naples and its surroundings.
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
1) Help out cleaning and tiding up the house. Be ready to dust shelves, sweep and wipe the floor, clean up kitchen and toilet, do laundry, go buy groceries and soaps, or do small commissions nearby.
2) You may occasionally be requested to welcome tourists, at my place or at a nearby apartment.
3) Teach a language or help me practising.
I am a passionate language learner and I will also host people who can help me practising the following languages: French, German, Russian, Mandarin, Japanese. Native speakers of other languages are also very welcome to contact me.
(no English or Spanish though as I am good enough in those, sorry!)
I do not expect volunteers to be professional language teachers but I will value some seriousness of sort.
I cannot provide food, so my guests should be ready to help out for 2-3 hours a day.
I agree to host for an initial period of 3-4 days. If you make your presence helpful we can discuss about prolonging it.

The house is big but do not expect any luxury accommodation, just a bed.
You will have your own place for sleeping. Toilet may be have to be shared.
You can use the terrace as I use it seldom , but you are requested to keep quiet when I'm at home working: no music.
You may be requested to use the kitchen during some specific hours.
Naples has a lot to offer in terms of arts, archaeology, music and cultural life in general. The surroundings have also beautiful nature spots. The city is very lively and -contrarily to what you could have read or heard- the central area is totally safe. People are straightforward and fancy interaction with foreigners, even though English is not widely spoken.
Nightlife is remarkable, especially in the weekend.
