  • Descripción


    We are an Italo-Brazilian couple (Ana and Pantaleo) with two small boys (Luca and Matteo, 10 and 8), a dog (Boldo) and a cat (Noah) living in a farm in sunny Southern Italy. Pantaleo is an international consultant with development agencies. He spends a lot of his time working abroad and tries to conciliate that with the farm work, which is not easy! Ana is a yoga teacher and a bee keeper. She is also the family gardener, cook and driver :-)

    We are looking for someone who loves kids, pets and countryside life, to give us a hand and be a temporary member of the family. We have an olive grove with 700 trees, plus a tomato cultivation, a vegetable garden, and a huge garden! During summer, we also rent an extra room en-suit for tourists (one couple at a time).

    Note: Unfortunately we are not in the position of helping applicants to Italian citizenship.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    The area where we live is known as Salento, located in the heel of the Italian boot. Here you will find the sun shining all year round, the the uniquely turquoise Mediterranean sea (20 minutes by car), astonishing sea cliffs, magical pinewoods, the constant wind, either the warm humid Scirocco blowing from Africa, or the cold dry Tramontana blowing from the North. In our home, you will get used to people switching from Portuguese to Italian to English, while listening to jazz and Brazilian music :-) You'll also have access to some musical instruments, as Pantaleo is a late trumpet player and is instilling his passion into Luca. We are adept of family meals and used to cooking and eating together. You will be most welcome to join us and share your recipes and food stories, as we believe this is part of a rich cultural exchange. After dinner, especially in wintertime, we like to do some family activity, like card games and story telling. We are early birds and sports lovers. There are bikes, all sorts of balls and even an amateur soccer/football pitch in the farm.

  • Alojamiento


    You will have your own private room with shared bathroom (the house has three bathrooms so this should not be a problem). You'll be asked to keep your room clean, do your own laundry and help in household chores. The house has decent heating (not obvious in Southern Italy) and wi-fi.

    We offer full board, not exclusively but mainly vegetarian, with many fresh organic vegetables.

    You can use one of our bikes and our second family car, if available, in your free time.

  • Algo más...

    Algo más...

    You can enjoy the surrounding countryside and seaside (google Torre Sant’Andrea and Torre Dell'Orso to see what our seaside looks like!). Running and cycling are good options, and you can borrow one of our bikes anytime during your stay. You can also visit beautiful historical cities such as Lecce (20 minutes drive) and Otranto (30 minutes drive). Within 2 hours drive, there are many other options, including natural parks, the city of Matera, etc. for short weekend trips. Public transport is very inefficient, but there is a train station (Sternatia) 5 minutes by car from the farm, from where you can take a train to Lecce, Otranto and Gallipoli. You can also borrow our second family car, when available, in your free time.
