Hi from Sicily!
We are Lorenzo&Marghe, a couple that decided to move to Sicily 7 years ago.
We live in a beautiful countryside estate located close to the amazing Mt. Etna, just 10 minutes away from Randazzo and 1 hour away from Catania by car. We produce extra virgin olive oil, wine and fruits. Our lives are hectic and every day is different from one another, living in the countryside definitely means you'll never get bored! :-D
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:
We are looking for smart, easy-going and indipendent people who love to spend time in the countryside, enjoying the quietness offered by our estate. The tasks depends on the seasons and they are always different, to resume a bit the extra help we normally need consists in:
- an extra hand in the estate: gardening, planting trees, weeding and restoring old fornitures.
- helping us in taking care of our big house: cleaning it and tiding up.
- And least but not last helping us in taking care of our dogs: which is mostly just feeding and cuddling them :-)
WHAT WE PROVIDE:
We will of course provide you with a private room and bathroom, as well as food (mostly vegetarian :-D)
IT IS THE RIGHT EXPERIENCE FOR YOU:
- If you are an indipendent and flexible person who likes to get his/her hands dirty.
- If you are looking for an immersion in Nature and you'd like to do some biking/hiking/running/walking.
- If you like dogs and if you appreciate the real countryside life.
- If you love silence and quietness and most of all appreciate spending time with yourself in a very quiet environment.
IT IS NOT THE RIGHT EXPERIENCE FOR YOU:
- If you wouldn't like to live submerged by nature without shops or café in a walking distance.
- If you feel like you want to visit a lot of Sicily independently and frequently, as the closest bus/train stop is 10km away in Randazzo. Therefore it can't be reached by foot, So a little organization and flexibility is needed to find the perfect timings for us to bring you to the station ;-)
- If you don't like to spend time in a very silent and calm place at night. Our home is the perfect place if you feel ok with yourself and like to spend time with your thoughts, your partner or traveling companion.
AVAILABLE PERIODS (3+/- days of flexibility):
MID JUNE ( 20/21 June) ---> MID JULY (12/13 July)
N.B.Since our place is located in a secluded area we would recommend this workaway to COUPLES (friends, couples...) in order not to feel lonely.
HOW TO REACH US:
You can easily reach us from Catania by car/bus or train.
We really hope to hear from you soon! :-D
