  • Description


    My name is Piero,
    I live in my house, it is located in the historic center of the city of Milazzo, in Sicily.
    My house is an old building that I inherited from my family and it is spread over two floors.
    I have personally done many of the renovations with my work.
    On the ground floor is my apartment where I live. A dog (cocker spaniel) and a cat also live with me.
    Much of my time is dedicated to my guests and my work.
    For all the needs of my guests, I and a lady who works for us provide.
    The help I need is just for managing my two cocker spaniel and one cats and for some maintenance and painting jobs I would like to undertake. The volunteer will have no contact with the guests or with activities connected to them.
    The rooms are separate and security is maximum.
    Milazzo is a beautiful city, with a fantastic beach and sea.
    My house is located in the city center, a five minute walk from the beach and everything is accessible on foot or by bike.
