we are a friendly and easy going Italian family who is looking for some assistance for our project.
We’ve been working for the last two years to renovate our home comprehensive of five trulli from the 17th century and an old Apulian building of the 18th century. At present, we need help during the month of August for the last steps of this journey (gardening, furnishing, decorating and other chores).
Our main short-term objective it to open a fabulous bed & breakfast in Autumn 2019.

Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
You’ll have the opportunity to get a taste of Italian lifestyle and stay in culturally rich area full of history.
If you want, we can teach you a bit of Italian and some typical recipes.
We’re looking for workawayers who would like to help us around the house and outdoor spaces.
We need to organize the garden, move furniture, clean windows, paint railings and so on.
Landscaping and building skills are more than welcome.
We offer a room with two beds and a bathroom; bed linen will be provided.
During your free time, you’ll be able to relax and socialize in common rooms or in the outdoor area.
In case you’ll need to wash your clothes, there is an old washing machine inside the house or a laundry just in front.
We’ll provide all meals but it may be difficult to offer a vegan option every day; giving a hand during preparation and washing-up of common meals is appreciated.
Smokers are welcome but, please, do not smoke inside the house.
Locorotondo is a very lively village (especially during summer) situated in the heart of Valle d’Itria, it will take just 5-10 minutes to get to the town centre on foot.
