    DURING THE SUMMER VOLUNTEERS ABLE TO DRIVE A 6-METER MOTOR BOAT WILL BE PREFERRED.

    TO GET ON THE PLANE AND FLY DOESN'T MAKE YOU AN AVIATOR.
    LIKEWISE GOING UNDERWATER DOES NOT MAKE YOU A DIVER.
    BEING A DIVER IS A VOCATION.
    I CAN TEACH DIVING TO THE PERSON WHO SHOWS THE RIGHT MOTIVATION, DISCIPLINE, ENTHUSIASM AND DEDICATION.

    I am a diver by profession, I love the sea, the outdoor activities and to travel.
    Wallis and Futuna, Mauritius and Rodriguez, Ile de la Reunion, Malta, Gozo, Marettimo, Vulcano, are some islands where I lived; Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Bali, Lombok, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Kazakhstan, Tunisia, are some of the countries I have visited for work or adventure. During my work trips or adventure trips I have been in contact with people of all cultures and I have developed the ability to have good relations with all.
    I don't drink hard alcohol, a glass of wine during meals or a small beer after work are always allowed; I don't smoke and I have never tried drugs:
    I don't host people who are addicted to alcohol, smoking or drugs. "THIS RULE DOES NOT ADMIT EXCEPTIONS".
    I love a healthy life, healthy and genuine food and to stay in good physical condition.
    I live in a house surrounded by greenery and with a large garden; the area is very beautiful: between the sea and the hills, the view is enchanting. Namu, the dog, she is wonderful.
    The place is ideal for lovers of sea, nature, trekking and all outdoor activities, away from the smog and noise of the city.
    After work, you can visit the surroundings or stay in the garden and relax or sunbathe on the terrace.
    I love human exchanges, I love the growth that can be obtained from this.
    I need time to take care of my interests, so help would be welcome, but what interests me most is to feel good with the people I host.
    The sea and diving take up almost all of my day; diving is my life, almost a form of meditation; so I need someone to give me a hand in daily chores, such as cooking, taking care of the house and the garden, doing small maintenance, take care beautiful Namu.
    For those with specific skills, there are also carpentry, masonry and electricity work to be carried out.
    Computer experts are also welcome.
    DURING THE SUMMER, VOLUNTEERS CAPABLE OF DRIVING A 6-METER MOTOR BOAT WILL BE PREFERRED.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Trapani is in an excellent position to discover a very beautiful part of Sicily; Erice, Segesta, San Vito Lo Capo, Monte Cofano, are some close places to visit. Sicily, with beatiful sea, montain landscape, caves, many natural, historical and archaeological sites, great food and nice weather all year long, is one unique island.
    I know the surrounding area very well, because I have always done outdoor activities, such as mountain biking, trekking, trekking, swimming, snorkeling, diving. I can show you where to go, what to do, which specialties to taste.
    In our free time we can do activities together if you want.
    In summer, if the weather permits, we can go out by boat and you can learn how to drive it.
    If you already know how to drive the boat you can get me assistance while I dive.
    If you are a diver, you can increase your knowledge by taking advantage of my professional experience. I can share with you the story of many adventures lived at sea and underwater.
    I offer you a true experience in the Sicilian world.

  • Help

    Help

    Normally I need help with cleaning, gardening and general maintenance of my home.
    1) General and deep cleaning (bedrooms, bathrooms, terraces, stairs, etc.),
    1) To cook daily meals, if you are able to cook healthy food you are welcome.
    2) Gardening: prune some trees, cut grass, rake, clean (Namu doesn't clean), get rid of some overgrown plants, cut wood. Nothing too difficult.
    3) Painting and other light maintenance may be required.
    4) There is also carpentry, masonry and electricity work to be done, it depends on the skills.
    5) IT and electronic experts are welcome.
    People with previous experience in similar tasks, manual work skills, and comfortable using power and hand tools are very welcome.

    DURING THE SUMMER VOLUNTEERS ABLE TO DRIVE A 6-METER MOTOR BOAT WILL BE PREFERRED.

    5 HOURS OF WORK A DAY, FIVE DAYS A WEEK.

    On some days you may need to work longer, in which case you will work less on other days.
    Help could be requested in the morning or in the afternoon, it depends on the daily needs, on the weather conditions, on my needs.

    I WORK HARD HERE AND I EXPECT VOLUNTEERS TO BE READY TO DO THE SAME. NO LAZY PEOPLE PLEASE.

    I hope that those who come to my house are willing to help me seriously and to behave honestly with me: in turn I tend to reward help with all I can, whenever I can!
    NORMAL HOUSE CLEANING WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED PART OF YOUR 'JOB' but the object of your respectful and clean life at home.
    I am happy to share my home and to provide accommodation, but it is essential that you make every effort to keep the environment clean.
    It is important to have respect for the objects in the house and for the tools you use to work.

    EVERYTHING THAT IS USED MUST BE PUT IN ITS PLACE. Please don't change the place of things.

    PLEASE REMEMBER: VOLUNTEERS MUST KEEP THEIR ROOM, THEIR BATHROOM AND COMMON AREAS CLEAN AND TIDY.
    VOLUNTEERS MUST CLEAN BEFORE LEAVING.

    I really hope this could be a mutually beneficial experience for all of us.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    The volunteer will sleep in a single-room with wardrobe, desk, chairs; he'll have a personal bathroom, outside the room; sometimes the bathroom could be shared with other visitors.
    I provide sheets, blankets and towels and other necessary things.
    I get up early in the morning, I do stretching and meditation; I have coffee or breakfast between 6:30 and 7:30 and prefer to have breakfast together, talk and decide what work to do.
    IN ANY CASE, BETWEEN 7:30 AND 8:00 WE START TO WORK.
    Lunch will be around 13:30 and dinner around 20:00.
    I can eat any type of food, I am omnivorous, I like spices and I eat spicy; I like to eat in a healthy and balanced way; I don't eat white flour so very little bread or pasta, I prefer meat, fish, eggs, vegetables and fruit. I like to buy local and fresh food from small local producers and let my guests taste local specialties.
    I ask that the volunteer take care of cooking and cleaning for both of us; so the volunteer will be provided with 3 meals a day.
    On free days the volunteer can stay outside and eat at his own expense; if the volunteer stays at home, he can definitely eat at home and have his 3 meals, in return I ask him to cook and clean for both.
    I ask for flexibility, courtesy and mutual respect.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The house is located in a quiet place, not noice, about 2 km from the village of Valderice and about 12 km from the city of Trapani. The house is surrounded by trees, has a fabulous view of the sea from Bonagia to Monte Cofano; about 7 km away is Erice, a beautiful medieval city that you can also visit by taking a trekking route with breathtaking views.
    The location is not well served from public transport, but offers opportunity to rent a car.
    However, I can take you to the bus stop in Valderice from where you can reach different locations, or you can come with me whenever I'll go to Trapani.
