  • Description


    Hello, I'm Margherita ,I live in Sicily, near Etna vulcano and Taormina, in a lemon Grove in front of the Jonian sea with my family .

    I need help since 5 Novembre until 25 November and since 5 January, if you have experience in cleanings, ironing, gardening, painting,help around the house, help with the dogs, building.

    I prefer to host a couple for a long stay to help with my 2 dogs and around the house.
    I offer an independent hospitality,you can cook by yourself when you want. Of course I like to share meals with workawayers but many times we have different time for lunch and dinner and different food preference.
    If you are very young and if you are looking to meet a lot of workawayers this is not the right place for you!. Then you have to know that this is a place where you can find contact with nature (the sea, the countryside), concentration, relax, very different from the city even if at 1 km and half you can find a village(Fondachello) with many bars, restaurants, pizzeria, you can drink good beer, and find many local tourists.
    If you want to visit naturalistic places you can have a naturalistic guide or have a car because public transport is very good only to go to the big cities (Messina, Catania, Siracusa, Palermo, Ragusa ecc), not to the Etna or to the trekking places.
