    Good Host
  • Description


    It is an organization that works towards environmental protection, promotion of active citizenship and cultural exchange through voluntary activities. We are based out of Celacanto, a restored house on a verdant promontory overlooking a beautiful sea, in Marina Serra, 3 km from Tricase (LE), Italy.

    Last winter, a big tornado wreaked havoc on our property and we would to love to host willing volunteers from May-June, 2019 to help us to get our summer activities under way.

    Furthermore, bloggers, vloggers, social media influencers and visual storytellers who would like to share our story are also welcome! Any other ideas? Please contact us and we will be more than happy to discuss :)

    P.S. Celacanto also houses an extremely graceful 2-year-old cat named Rino :)
