    How faster we finish the day tasks ... faster we can begin having fun and enjoy all the possibilities of our paradise place!!!
    Quanto mais rápido terminamos as tarefas do dia ... mais rápido podemos começar a nos divertir e aproveitar todas as possibilidades do nosso lugar paradisíaco !!!
    Quanto velocemente finiamo le attività giornaliere ... più velocemente possiamo iniziare a divertirci e goderci tutte le possibilità del nostro posto paradisiaco !!!

    A good agreement is real good ...when it is good for the both side, for the host and the volunteer!
    Um bom acordo é muito bom ... quando é bom para ambos os lados, para o anfitrião e para o voluntário!
    Un buon accordo è davvero buono ... quando va bene per entrambe le parti, per l'ospite e il volontario!

    Podemos hospedar voluntários brasileiros, mesmo que não possuam experiências manuais ou habilidades técnicas, mas que, realmente demonstrem interesses de aprender e se desenvolver, além é claro, do seu desejo de se divertirem também!
    Comecei minha vida profissional, trabalhando com capacitação profissional de jovens e adultos no ano de 1980. Em seguida tive empresa de engenharia por aproximadamente 15 anos, empregando funcionários e estagiários de cursos profissionalizantes, cursos técnicos e de engenharia. Atualmente atuo somente como profissional liberal.

    Attention! Case you are carrying many big and heavy luggage, and you are doing tourism; we can´t host you like a volunteer!! We recommend you look for a hotel !!!

    Atenção! Caso você esteja carregando muitas bagagens grandes e pesadas, e esteja fazendo turismo; não podemos hospedá-lo como um voluntário !! Recomendamos que você procure um hotel !!!

    Attenzione! Case stai trasportando molti bagagli grandi e pesanti e stai facendo turismo; non possiamo ospitarti come un volontario !! Ti consigliamo di cercare un hotel !!!

    (agosto 2020)

    Uma observação importante que fiz, durante meu voluntariado no norte da Itália, que pode contribuir com a comunidade do WA, foi sobre a importância de sermos atenciosos em relação à formação profissional (e experiência de vida) do voluntário que venha trabalhar ou participar conosco, de alguma atividade. Penso que pode ser muito bom para o voluntário, bem como ao anfitrião, o aproveitamento de ambas as experiências e aptidões, que os mesmos possam ter.
    De um lado o anfitrião poderá ser melhor benefiado, com a oportunidade que oferece ao voluntário, assim como, por outro lado, o voluntário, poderá se divertir, aprender, ensinar, ... e ambas as partes ganharem mais, além de poderem fazer grandes amizades!!!

    Un'importante osservazione che ho fatto durante il mio volontariato nel nord Italia, che può dare un contributo alla comunità WA, è stata l'importanza di essere attenti alla formazione professionale (ed esperienza di vita) del volontario che viene a lavorare o partecipa con noi, a qualsiasi attività. Penso che possa essere molto utile per il volontario, così come per l'ospite, sfruttare sia le esperienze che le capacità che possono avere.
    Da un lato, l'ospite può essere meglio avvantaggiato, con l'opportunità che offre al volontario, così come, dall'altra, il volontario, può divertirsi, imparare, insegnare, ... ed entrambe le parti guadagnano di più, oltre a poter fare grandi amicizie !!!

    An important observation I made during my volunteering in northern Italy, which can contribute to the WA community, was about the importance of being attentive to the professional training (and life experience) of the volunteer who comes to work or participate with us, in any activity. I think it can be very good for the volunteer, as well as the host, to take advantage of both the experiences and skills that they may have.
    On the one hand, the host can be better benefited, with the opportunity he offers the volunteer, as well as, on the other hand, the volunteer, can have fun, learn, teach, ... and both parties earn more, besides being able to do great friendships !!!
    _________________________________________
    IMPORTANT!
    Before i've decided belongs to the WA, i've read the Workaway Guide for get to know, how it works (First instance it is culture exchanging, scambio culturale).
    _________________________________________
    I work like engineer and take care of the houses for renting in vacation seasons!

    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Why am i here?
    I think to receive host and help!
    Because we practices sports!
    Because We are a family.
    Because we love hosting people from the other side of the world! :)

    Working like teacher and engineer, i got very good skills to pass on the others.

    Almost every weekends we have Basic Sail Classes! This opportunity can give good skills, for people wishing to join a sailing crew, in regata around the world.

    See you at our beach!

    Good Winds!
    --------------------------------------------------------
    We have some tasks to do at a house that I rent - some maintenance work like painting, repairs, gardening, etc... everything very feasable and without stress. Everyday we can do something before having fun!

    \ Our past hosting history!
    I wanna improve my french as well!....and speaking in english!
    PS: change in your mind Surf for Sail ...Please... i did not have Sail's option to set! :) ... even though, in our local, we have a small surf school close here as well!

    I think that is enough ... and we hope you keep in touch using the cellphone "by whats", while you are coming!

    Also:
    O que acontece no nosso ambiente de trabalho e convivência, é que não temos uma configuração parecida com um hostel, ou hotel ou uma pousada, aonde as atividades são mais formais, com horas bem determinadas, aonde o faturamento (lucro), normalmente é o objetivo maior do empreendimento.
    O que esperamos dos voluntários que venham estar conosco, é que eles mesmos sempre façam um balanço entre o que recebem e oferecem de trabalho, pois não usamos de nenhum controle rígido, ou muitas regras ou formalidades.
    Deixamos fluir os trabalhos normalmente e nunca esperamos receber mais, do que damos em troca.
    ___________________________________

    What happens in our work environment and coexistence is that we do not have a hostel-like configuration, or hotel or hostel, where activities are more formal, with well-defined hours, where revenue (profit) is usually the objective of the enterprise.
    What we expect from the volunteers who come to be with us is that they always make a balance between what they receive and offer of work, because we do not use any rigid control, or many rules or formalities.
    We let jobs flow normally and we never hope for more than we give in return.
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    But: Although we live on the beach! We are always working and improving our installations, to receive tourists, and make a few money, to pay the bills and taxes.
    Case your plans are doing only tourism, our hosting, will not be the ideal place for you!

    Mas: Apesar de morarmos na praia! Estamos sempre trabalhando e melhorando nossas instalações, para receber turistas e ganhar algum dinheiro, para pagar as contas e os impostos.
    Caso seus planos sejam apenas turismo, nossa hospedagem não será o local ideal para você!
    -----------------------------------------------------------
    Also: We hope the volunteers do the housekeeping of place, before they have leave the private chalet we have offered them!

    Também: Esperamos que os voluntários façam a limpeza do local, antes de deixarem o chalé particular que lhes oferecemos!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our helpers can use the free time to do the rides, stay on the beach, surf, sail, ride by bike, use the internet, sleep, and do some local traveling by bus or by car together us! ...because we are almost in front of the beach and it is easy to take the road!

    I prefer that WAs volunteers, do not get involved, with the customers that are renting my 3rd house.
