I'm a young female soul in my fifties living with a family of cats on a hill surrounded by trees with a beautiful view of a pine forest near a small town in the province of Ragusa, in Sicily.
The plot is about 2000 sq metres, there are carob trees, olive trees, some fruit trees, young oaks and many pine trees and cypresses giving out a lovely scent to the place. The surrounding area is a mountain bike paradise so if you're on a road trip or wish to bring your bike you'll enjoy exploring the area on your bike in your free time.
The house is a small country house with a comfortable kitchen and living area, and an independent room with en-suite bathroom outside the main house for the guests. I have a small area to grow my own vegetables.
The place is also suitable to someone who wishes to be away from the hustle and bustle of city life, someone who has an artistic interest to pursue in a quiet environment in exchange for general help in and outside the house.
From time to time I need a cat lover who'd love to look after my lovely cats so I could go away for a week or two. If you wish to cat sit then I'd ask you to be here at least 5 days before my departure so you can get to know the cats and they can get used to you.
If you're here to help on your days off I'm happy to drive you to the nearest bus station where you can catch a bus to the nearby cities, it's a ten minutes drive and I can pick you up on your return.
I speak fluent Italian and English and get by with French. I'm sociable but I also like to spend time in my own company or in quiet company.

I speak fluent Italian and English. I like cooking Italian food and have picked up some Indian cooking skills that I can pass on. I've lived in England for over twenty years and I've assimilated the English culture so I'm not the classic Italian lady nor the typical English one. I like meeting new cultures and exchange views and skills.
I also practice yoga and Tai Chi and I'd be happy to introduce you to these disciplines or to just practice together. I have a certificate as a Yoga Teacher for Beginners which I acquired in India over ten years ago.
The help needed changes according to the time of the year so it will be discussed when you apply for your stay. This time of the year and for the next month I need help clearing the garden and prepare the soil to plant the spring vegetables.
The accommodation is in a double room with en-suite bathroom. The entry to the room is independent from the main house so you'll be able to enjoy your privacy.
I'm mainly vegetarian when on my own but I can eat some meat if you do. I buy my veggies from local farms to supplement my own veggies when they aren't enough.
Ideally we'll cook together and exchange skills.
Public transport to the main nearby cities is available at a ten minutes drive and I'm willing to drive you at the bus station and pick you up. There are also many smaller towns nearby that must be seen for their architectural beauty. The sea is about 40 minutes away from the place so if you love the sea this isn't for you but if you enjoy walking and cycling there are many trails all around the area and all you need to do is leave the house and.. walk.
There won't be TV watching in the house as I'd rather listen to music, read a book or have a stimulating conversation, exchange views and experiences.
One last thing, I smoke very little rolling tobacco and only outside the house. I know I do count as a smoker but a very light one :)
