  • Descrição

    Descrição

    We are are a family: Irene and Daniele, our children Selene (2011) and Giulio (2013) and some other nice animal friends (at the moment our dogs Pioppo and Lyra, 3 cats, some hens and some indian runner ducks. After some years around, we decided to live in a small house in the Sicilian countryside, trying to produce our own organic food when possible and to enjoy nature and simplicity. The house is very small but it's surrounded by a nice garden, rich of fruit trees, plants, an orchard and we have access both to the wilderness, crossing an alive bridge on Irminio river (fresh to bath in, during summertime...) and to the Baroque charm of Ragusa Ibla, "climbing" a little hill (15 minutes walking). We are not isolated but part of a little village: we chat and socialize with our different neighbors almost everyday...good manners and respect for common life are a must.

    Besides everyday countryside and home tasks, Irene is working part-time with a nice organic agricolture and community project , while Dani is growing his dream of becoming a bee-keeper.
    Our production is mainly for self sussistance..

    We have a long experience in hosting friends and couchsurfing, but now it's the moment for us to share the efforts together with the joys with our guests! We work hard as country living requires, and we aspect our guests to be willing to share this style. We are not the right hosts for freeloader tourists: who comes here has to be curioius to share country living with its efforts and joys, not only to travel without spending money.

    We would prefer minimum 1 week stays, but we're waiting for changing our mind

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    We'll be glad to share with you what we are learning everyday, living our apparently simple life: producing some necessities, from food (ah, italian food, but mostly vegetarian...!) to furnishings, knowing our special territory (we love to trek in the nature and we found many little treasures we''ll be happy to show to adventurers!) and community.

    WHAT WE ASK YOU
    We ask you to help around 25 hours per week, with flexible timetables: we live a quite messy life!
    Moreover we ask you to share our daily routine...we are not an hotel or a restaurant: keeping common spaces clean and cooking are tasks we hope you are ready to share with us.
    We need help specially in our everyday tasks, both in the garden, depending on the season (planting, watering, harvesting, preparing land, pruning, making wood for the fire and the oven, caring for animals) and in the house (extraordinary cleaning, processing food, making bread every 10 days...). We would appreciate help with our children care, too.
    PLEASE REMEMBER: VOLUNTEERS MUST KEEP THEIR SPACES AND COMMON AREAS CLEAN AND TIDY AND MUST CLEAN BEFORE LEAVING.

    SIDE ACTIVITIES
    We have a nice group of friends, hoping to change the world starting from our gardens, and we meet twice a months to share intensive job turning in our respective places...it can be that you will have the plasure to join us in one of these collective work days!
    Since march 2021, we are carring on a shared garden together with other friends and we're working intensively on it almost once a week plus some little caring every day. Helping with this activity will be one of our guest's task
    Moreover there are some projects we are working on and we'll be happy to share with the right people: building a tree house, a compost toilet, a solar dryer, transforming our water tank in a little bio-lake, find a way to use wisely our little space and restore our camper. Since Selene is dreaming to have a horse, helping to find a way to organize for hosting one would be very welcome!
    If you want you could help with beekeeping, too, but depending on your experience and Dani's timetables.
    In special periods we could be committed to harvest products (olives, almonds, carobes, hazelnuts...) somewhere else and you will be wellcome if the conditions permit it

  • Acomodação

    Acomodação

    For the moment, we can host you in a tent in the garden, or exceptionally in our van on the road. We are building a tree house, that is not ready yet, but if you appreciate the idea, helping in building it could be your first job! we have a common open air kitchen and we share our bathroom inside the house (untill the compost toilet is ready). If there are rainy or cold days, don't worry: we also have a couch, even if it's not the best for your - and our - privacy...

  • Algo mais...

    Algo mais...

    We are 2 km away from Ragusa Ibla (where urban buses from Ragusa stops frequently), very closed to Ragusa Ibla train station, but unluckly the trains (Siracusa-Noto-Modica-Ragusa) are stopping there only in the weekends of the high season...there are very little buses (going to Noto or Catania), stopping there, but only if you waive visibly...walking home from Ragusa can be very nice, but the opposite way, uphill, is quite hard, specially in the summer sunshine. If our plans fit with yours, we could pick you up to Ibla or Ragusa, but we ask you to consider to try to be autonomous as much as you can.
    If you think some mosquitoes can be annoying for you (not much for us), don't forget a natural repellent, cause sometimes there are many and we don't use it.
    We are not stricly vegetarian, but we don't eat much meat. Our meals are mostly vegetarian and organic, with autoproduced or local high quality ingredients. If you come here, we hope you can appreciate our cooking, but if you don't, please feel free to provide yourself for your meals, to integrate ours with ingredients we don't use or to share your recepices!
