  • Descripción


    Ciao! My name is Maurizio and I am the owner of a small biking company operating in the tourism sector in Sicily. Our main focus is offering biking experiences to clients (both cyclists and non-cyclists) from all over the world.

    Our office and workshop is based in Milo, a beautiful, small village located 700 metres above sea level on the slopes of Mount Etna. We are about a 50-minute drive from the city centre of Catania and a 45-minute drive from Catania international airport.

    We operate our bike tours on and around Mount Etna volcano but also in other areas of Sicily. We love this island and its nature and we are passionate about introducing it to our clients on a bike, not only as cyclists but also as explorers. Our busy season is generally from April to the end of October and that is when we would like some extra help to join our small team.

    You will have the opportunity to live in a beautiful small Sicilian village on Etna and work in a dynamic, exciting environment where you will be interacting with our clients who come from all over the world. You will have the chance to fully experience Italian and Sicilian culture, with its history, art, traditions, beaches and great cuisine.

    If you enjoy hiking/biking/skiing in your free time, you will have the chance to go exploring the trails on Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe. This is our first experience with Work Away so we are looking forward to hosting, sharing and learning more about people from around the world!

    We are looking for energetic, pro-active, friendly people to work with us who are bike/cycling and outdoor-enthusiasts. You must also be good with people and enjoy a chat! We need a worker who can stay for more than a month and we are also interested in someone who can stay for the whole 7 months of the season (from April to end of October).

    Responsibilities will include the following:

    - taking care of the bikes and associated equipment (tools, helmets and water bottles)
    - keeping the workplaces clean and tidy
    - greeting clients and assisting them at the start and end of bike tours
    - loading and unloading the bikes on the trailer or in the van
    - in the case of experienced cyclists there is also the possibility to work as a guide, after a short training period

    If you have other skills to offer, we will be happy to try and put them to good use! A good command of the English language is compulsory. It is not essential to speak Italian but it would be helpful if you want to learn. Other European languages are a plus and so is a driving licence.

    Depending on the skills level of the person, we will pay a monthly wage starting from 300 euro per month in addition to free accommodation. If you have additional skills/experience such as bike guiding, we will of course pay more.

    My first language is Italian but I also speak English fluently. In the office we speak both Italian and English and also with clients.

  • Alojamiento


    We offer either a private room or independent flat with kitchen which is within walking distance of the workplace in Milo. We are renting this accommodation for you. The village of Milo is small but famous for its wine. It has a bakery, butcher shop, small cafés, a grocery shop, a post office and some small restaurants which are all within walking or cycling distance. Milo is at the foot of the volcano so many tourists pass through in summertime. In wintertime it is a quiet place.

    Algo más...

    The village of Milo has a population of approximately 1,000 inhabitants and offers a quiet, local atmosphere. It is the perfect place for learning/practising Italian as not many foreigners live there and so you can have a local, Sicilian experience. It is an excellent starting point for discovering the surrounding area, especially for outdoor enthusiasts. There are many hiking and biking trails on Mount Etna and there is also an outdoor adventure centre in Milo.

    Public transport is limited but there is a daily bus connection with Catania (train station). The nearby town of Zafferana (famous for its honey) has more regular bus connections to Catania. Milo is 40 minutes by bike from the nearest beach (Fondachello/Marina di Cottone).

    If you have access to a car there are many beautiful towns to visit such as Taormina, Giardini Naxos, Zafferana, Aci Trezza etc. and of course Etna. If you don't have a car, you can take the local bus to Catania centre and then take a train or bus from there to Syracuse or Palermo as well as many other places around Sicily.
