    Benvenuti!
    We are an open-minded German/Italian family (65, 54 , 25 and 21 years old) and we live in the Etna Nature Reserve (since 2013 World Cultural Heritage of the U.N.E.S.C.O.) with a beautiful view on the the largest active volcano in Europe .

    We run a small riding center which offers amongst others , horse riding, trail rides, vaulting tuition and guided walks around the volcano. Furthermore can organize trips on Etna, to the sea and to different ancient cities like Catania, Syracuse, Taormina and Palermo.

    During the year we also offer wood-processing workshops and various hobby courses in our own workshop. We also have a small farm shop with our own organic products and handmade gift items and utensils.
    We organize family celebrations, birthday parties, childrens' adventures and summer camps for kids "around the horse", carriage rides, barbecue and dancing. Our customers are not only Italians, but also come from other nations, mostly from Germany and the USA.

    On the 2 ha property you will find our two rental cottages and a small log cabin surrounded by chestnut-, olive- and fruit trees. To the south you enjoy a magnificent view over the plain of Catania and the Ionian Sea, to the north you can see the mountain massif of the volcano. We currently have six terrain-safe horses/ponies, a drolly sheep and a small zoo with chickens, guinea pigs and country turtles. Our two family friendly dogs and a fluffy cat are always around. They all need a lot of care.
    During the seasons we harvest mulberries, and figs, apples, nuts, almonds, chestnuts, olives and process it to oil, jam, canned goods, cakes and cookies.
    In wintertime our houses are heated with wood, so during the year a lot of fire wood has to be prepared.
    From February to March we have to trim the 35 olive trees and also some fruit trees.

    We are looking for open-minded and dynamic people who would like to help us with our 7 horses ( to clean and to saddle them, to feed them and to keep clean the stables). If you have a riding license you can help us to teach in the field. We have even a lot of children coming for horse riding or for vaulting lessons. For adults we organize different trail rides. We have Italian, English an German people and kids, so basic knowledge of that languages would be for advantage.
    We also need some help on the ground and with the trees (cutting branches and making fire wood).
    Cooking and dish washing is welcome .

    Other tasks includes painting iron gates and wooden tables and roofs, if you feel like.

    We prefer non-smokers!

    You will sleep in our nice wooden log cabin with bathroom with shower. You share the main meal (lunch) with us at the working days.

    Algo más...

    Most of the time one of us is at home, so you can ask for help anytime. We can give you a lift to the next village or the next bus station (4 km). In summertime (June and July) we organize camps for children and teenagers. You are also welcome to join or visit some of the many lava stone caves in the area.
