  • Descripción


    My name is Leah. I fell in love with Puglia 16 years ago and recently purchased a charming house in the historical center of the small town of Oria, a medieval hamlet in central Puglia. The home has super comfortable living spaces, an ultra-panoramic terrace, wellness corner with yoga mats, and an equipped kitchen perfect for home chefs. Vaulted ceilings, colorful tiled floors, and unique accents create a distinctive Mediterranean environment ideal for short or long stays.
    I am looking to find Workaways (preferably with their own car) who want to come and spend one to four months in Oria. I will not be there so you would have the place to yourselves. For this reason it likely makes sense to come as a pair so you have someone to enjoy the experience with :-)

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Oria is an amazing slice of small town life in Puglia. There are very few tourists so you would have the chance to practice Italian at every exchange. It is not a beach town but an all-year-round-town so there is good energy and a fun cultural calendar even in the winter months. The food is out of this world and Oria would be a great place to practice your seasonal Italian cooking! Great base to explore more of the region.

    I am interested in Workaways with unique and specific skills who would like to bring their professional expertise to my house in Oria and the myriad business projects I have on at any given time: avid researchers, bureaucracy specialists, sustainability experts, entrepreneurs, restaurateurs, architects, engineers, botanists, fine artists, house painters, travel writers, graphic designers, chefs, plumbers, social media strategists, photographers, cartographers, seamstresses, attorneys, electricians, plumbers, historians, etc. are welcome.

    Aside from putting your unique professional skills to use, the terrace and balconies will need some tender loving care, gardening and potting of plants, etc. In addition to this there could be some interior painting and general maintenance needed along with light housesitting responsibilities. I am also looking for an experienced 3D designer, architect, or interior designer who has the technical skills to help with designing a section of the house I am looking to update.

    I am also looking for a fluent Italian speaker with research and project planning experience who would be able to help me research local zoning laws and help me flesh out a business idea I have.

    I get a lot of messages and I appreciate all the interest! But I don't have time to respond to messages that are not relevant to the above so please, kindly, with love in my heart - no time wasters. :) Thanks

    A sunny house in the historical center of Oria. The living room has vaulted ceilings, comfortable furnishings, and a sunny balcony overlooking a tiny piazza. Spacious dining room that accommodates four. The Pugliese know that good food is everything and the well stocked kitchen has all the tools a home chef requires to prepare, present, and enjoy it all. Featuring a stovetop and oven, full sized refrigerator, dishwasher, electric kettle and toaster plus thoughtful details such as pie pans, high quality knives, Southern Mediterranean cookbooks, and more, this is a kitchen designed for cooking and you will be responsible for cooking for yourself. The petite bedroom features exceptionally high ceilings, a queen sized bed with cotton bedding, two nightstands, and easy-open window for a gentle evening breeze. An internal whitewashed stone staircase leads up to the panoramic terrace. On a clear day the terrace provides views of both the Adriatic and Ionian seas while ancient groves of olives stretch out as far as the eye can see.

    There is an ample kitchen and you will be in charge of preparing your own meals.

    Oria is right in the center of the best of Puglia so a great base for exploration! Boats leave from Bari and Brindisi to Greece, Croatia and Albania and the two nearby international airports connect you to the rest of the world easily!
