    LOOKING FOR HELP: I am looking for one, two persons, or a couple for these specific dates:

    March 9-14

    May 15-23

    I will need help during the time I will be out of town, so I will need one or two reliable persons to take care of plants, trees and garden, and feed 5 resident cats and one wild cat who comes looking for food.

    The house is in the countryside, in quite a remote place. The closest town is Castelmola, about 8 km far. So this Workaway listing can suit people who are ok in staying one whole week or more in a countryside location. Otherwise renting a car or scooter in the nearby towns will allow volunteers to move around and visit places or buying their own food.

    The tasks are very basic: watering plants, and feeding the cats, changing their drinking water every day. The rest of the time volunteers can enjoy their time in a natural environment, with clean air and the view of Etna just in front.

    The volunteer or couple will have a room for themselves in the house where I live. We will share the apartment, I will sleep in the mezzanine on top of the living room.

    Taormina is the most popular town around the area. A very beautiful village on the east coast of Sicily, about midway between Messina and Catania, and very popular tourist destination since the 19th century. The village is perched on a cliff overlooking the sea. Besides the ancient Greek theatre, it has many old churches, lively bars, fine restaurants, and antique shops. Taormina is approximately a forty-five minute drive away from Europe’s largest active volcano, Mount Etna.

    The main benefit is the opportunity to stay for free in a location where accommodation is usually very expensive. Also, staying close to Taormina is a good opportunity to visit places near by, like Catania, Forza D'Agrò, Savoca, and spend some time on awesome beaches. Taormina is also a very interesting town from the historical and cultural viewpoint, a place where it is possible to enjoy beautiful art and architecture. The area also offers nice walks in an amazing landscape.

    The help required from volunteers is very simple, but requires care: feeding the cats focusing on some specifications that I will give at the beginning of the stay or before, if required. And watering garden and growing plants

    Possibility to visit Taormina and the beautiful surroundings: like the charming Isola Bella and the small "fairy town" of Castelmola. It is also possible to visit the wonderful historical centres of Forza d'Agrò and Savoca, where some scenes of the Godfather movie were shot.

    No dogs. I have two cats who may be afraid. No cats: my cats become very upset when other cats are in the house
