  • Description


    *People wanted to join immediately. Last minute...

    Over 21s only please.

    I am putting together a team of people who have skills such as woodwork, gardening, masonry, like to cook, and people who can play music extra welcome :).

    Everyone can mix up their work to some extent, but these will be the main tasks.

    We have lots of vegetables in the garden to cook, and guitars to play. If you don't like staying up late, socialising and drinking wine, then getting up with the morning sun, maybe look somewhere else.

    The house is a bike ride from amazing beaches. I am looking for fun people to join us. I provide accom and food, and wine in the evening.

    BTW, I am not Italian, and the language of the house tends to be a mix of English, Italian, Spanish and French, depending on the volunteers at the time.

    The days will be helping out in which ever capacity you have come to do, and helping in something else too to mix it up. Break for lunch, sea...siesta, maybe a bit more work then wine and dine. There is Brindisi a few kms away which has great night life....Ostuni which is amazing, and the beaches are incredibly beautiful.
