  • Description

    Description

    We are a non profit cultural association based in a historical and natural contest in the beautiful and warm south of Italy.
    Our association is working to restore a typical "masseria" with 18 "trulli" to be able to do cultural events, exhibitions, concerts, workshops, art residencies and social activities in the nature.

    ***PLEASE READ BELOW VERY CAREFULLY***

    We are looking for people who are PROACTIVE and HARDWORKING, who likes nature, animals and outdoors activities.
    We also need help in house keeping like cleaning and tidying up. (So be prepared to do a different kind of activities from cleaning the bathroom to gardening !! :D )
    Remember that we are a non profit association, so we provide you room and board with our personal income so we expect you to be very ACTIVE and RELIABLE during your stay.
    If you know how to cook vegetarian or veggie meals it would be even better!
    We love to cook and to share our recipes and typical dishes from Puglia's tradition.
    if you are ready to join us in this beautiful adventure do not hesitate to contact us!

    N.B. if you are allergic to dogs and straw this IS NOT the best place for you because we are surrounded by straw.
