UPDATE FEBRUARY 2020: I will be away until mid/end of March so unable to host people until then.
I have been living in Italy for over 20 years. I work at home (translator) - so I am usually here at home but not always available because, well, I have to get my work done.
Flexibility and moderation are key in this household. As is being low-maintenance. If you have any hardcore food restrictions or allergies this is probably not the right place.
If you are looking for a place to stay in a (more or less) relaxed environment and help out around the house, please do get in touch with me.
Recently I have had some requests like "can I get residency at your house so I can get XYZ documents?". The answer is no, only because it is too much of a hassle.
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
You will meet "real" Italian people and have the opportunity to experience life in a little town in Italy. The train station is a 5-minute walk from my house. It is on the Ancona- Rome line. I also have a brick oven for making pizza that you are welcome to use. The best benefit might be that you will be in a safe place with friendly people and take a little break from your travels to recharge your batteries.
The house is always in need of some TLC , so you may see something that you want to fix or do. Normally, I show people who come all the things that need to be/could be done and then let them decide what they would like to do (quite a few times WAs have come and seen something that I did not mention and do that which is 100% fine by me).
3-story house - your own bedroom (of course), shared bathroom, kitchen, living room and small garden/ outdoor area
You are most welcome to eat whatever is in the fridge and pantry. There is a little shop very close to my house if you want to buy any special food that I don't have. Bigger shops are just a short train ride away.
Google "Frasassi caves" to get an idea of the surroundings. A lot of rock climbers come here so if you are into that I can do my best to find somebody willing to take you climbing. Since we are located on the Ancona- Rome train line it's very easy to take day/weekend trips to the sea or the city.
