    Description

    Hi there, sometimes it's hard to talk about ourself but i think that we're not too much different in the world. I think that the world is very small and despite customs and traditions we're linked by a thin line. My family is a big one, we're four brothers (2&2) and I'm the youngest one. My mom and my dad are always occupied in working. Only me and my near sister are interested with workaway and learning from volunteers too.

    Hello, we got fields and fields awaiting to grow up together and with a family mood. There is not a main work or help that our volunteers may give us but during the year we do many works in my property: from the harvest of olives and vegetables to irrigate fields where the water is not always present; from cutting woods for the winter to build a little house for my donkey or chickens.

    The truth is that working in country is not really easy and things to do are almost infinite. For this reason i prefer to speak before you come here to explain bettere what we will do together.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    a normal house, home if you want. There are two possible accommodations, one is the house of my grandparents inside a forest at start of mountain of my town; the other one is mine home in a little hill arounded fields. My country is extended especially on the hills and for this is not a promenade harving olives but the oil of these hill places is the best that a tree of olives can give to us. By the way the houses are quite friendly and welcoming.
