I'm Chiara, I used to be a Globetrotter before settling down in Syracuse with my love Fabrizio and our three dogs.
I am a teacher, a wine enthusiast and I am proudly and wildly in love with my homeland.
I have a cultural organization and I run many activities at the same time.
In Autumn and Winter I usually work as a Teacher of English and French as second Languages but I am actually revising my German and trying to learn Russian by myself, so this year I'm open to host native speakers of all these languages!

The area is lovely and absolutely not dangerous, we are 5 km from the center and we can give you a bike and a lift when you need them :) there is also a bus stop just in front our gate.
All around, easy to reach by bike, there are some cafés, groceries, a pharmacy, and the best beaches and landscapes Syracuse has to offer :)
We are very well-located: between the town and the seaside, a 30 minutes walk from the city center and 20 minutes from the nearest enchanting beach, but you'll have your own bike.
During days-off moving around will be easy as all the cities on the East Coast are easily reachable by bus: Noto (30 km), Catania (60km), Ragusa (80km) Taormina aso.
Life in Sicily is generally cheap and very affordable.
