    Hello hello hello! We are an Italian family of 4 (parents and 2 children): my sister (30) and I (27) moved out and our parents are looking for help with our family estate on the Mediterranean sea.
    The estate is on the seaside, in a place which is surrounded by pine&olive trees and 2 minutes away from the sea. Trips to Catania take 20 mins by car/bus, and to Taormina 30 mins by train.
    My brother and I speak fluent English, my mother speaks English although she is not fluent and my father makes himself understood! They never had issues in communicating with the people they hosted, although some basic knowledge of Italian can be useful.
    Usually my brother and I come back home during the summer, whereas during the winter we do not get the possibility to stay with my parents very much, hence why we like them to be surrounded by friendly, lively young people!
    In the villa, close to the house we live in, there is my grandparents' house which we occasionally rent out to tourists. We ask for help towards spaces that are not used by paying guests.
    We are looking for help with the maintenance of the outside area and of the inside too.
    My parents are both active and passionate about cooking and eating good food. They provide all meals and they try to eat together a few nights a week.

    We are a traditional Italian family who still respects siesta times. You will learn about Italian culture, and Italian lifestyle and food. We are relatively close to Mount Etna, so you can also try some good wines. If you come in October/Novermber you may help us to pick olives and make olive oil!
