I am a young owner of an ancient rural farmstay (with 16 hectares) located in Turi, in Bari province.
I am living here with my girlfriend and we are trying to develop our dream project.
We are spending this time restoring the main farmhouse into a welcoming place to live and to relax.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Our place in particular is a very quiet spot of land near the main town. You will have the chance to relax, work in the wild nature, explore our region and if you want also be part of our family and friends.
You will join a very fascinating region of Italy that is a melting pot of influences, with a huge number of medieval towns and cities, museums and ancient ruins, a really interesting variety of different arts.
We can also show you hidden seaside spots: we are located mid-way between the Adriatic and Ionion coasts and we know fabulous beaches on the two seas (only know by local people!).
You will be glad to taste our typical italian food too.
We are needing help to manage the masseria renovation.
The main goal at the moment is to rebuild some part of the house. Write now we are also doing a general maintenance of the house (painting, cleaning, minor decorative repairs, help with the animals - rabbits, dogs, cats, geese, chickens, etc).
The work will change depending on the priority and the season. During these season we are busy in harvesting cherries.
We are also trying to start an autosufficient vegetable garden project.
Any produce from the farm will not be sold to the public and is just for our own private consumption.
We really would like to host openminded people, kind, passionate, creative, with initiative and world caring.
Important note: we are looking for a BUILDER or CARPENTER that will help us building a swimming pool for the masseria!
Italian, English, Spanish
You will stay in one of our main rooms in the masseria with a shared bathroom. The room will be shared with a maximum of 4 people (mixed). It's a little bit raw at the moment but it's still lovable and cute.
We have a separate shared dining area with the kitchen.
You will have an outside terrace to relax. The place is really wide so you can always have some personal space in the nature around. We also have a farmyard with our animals.
If you want you can stay in your own tent or caravan, we have plenty of space outside of the main house!
Since we are at the start of the business activity we cannot assure you all the meals but we will often ask you to share a meal with us. Moreover we can let you use our car and we will take you at our secret sea spot in our free time, enjoying our company.
Unfortunately this first period of time we cannot afford to pay our workawayers.
Some of the most known places to enjoy are: Matera, Alberobello, Monopoli, Polignano a mare, Gallipoli.
