We are living in a tourist area along the South-east coast of the Sicily. Its sea is splendid, the water is crystal clear and clean, the beach of fine and golden sand. There are many reefs and natural reservoirs: Vendicari (the birds coming from Africa stop in this water area), Cavagrande del Cassibile (the most big canyon in Europe). We have some Lemon gardens and olives trees lands in Noto and Avola landscape. You can see some photos here in our website.

We have a little production of wine in September.
All year around we need a maintenance of grass and garden, painting walls and baby sitting, clening house, general maintenance of homes.
From middle October to middle November we need to harvest the olives. Please ask us for 2010 olives harvest.
Here in the winter, from December to March we harvest lemons.
We are restoring an abandoned country little house with an interest in preserving the original features and natural character of the building and its landscaping with stone walls, little river and spring, old well a lot of different fruits and trees.

We have a 37 feet motor boat (you can see photo gallery) on the sea all year around. There is all comforts but some time need maintenance: now need painting teak, rebuild woods accessory outside, to mount filters, check-up bilge pumps, repair helm in flybridge area.... If you have skill around motor boats we wait for your application. In this way you can live on the boat in the Marina sea side or if you prefer in ours apartments showed in photos.
Please contact us for more info.
We are a family of 4 people (2 adults 40 years old about, 2 children: 3 and 8 years old)
We teach in the school. We have a 3 floor home with apartments sea side and a "Villa" in the country, near the beach, only 350 mt. The land around is about 10,000 sqm.
The apartment and the villa are for rent, normally weekly all year around. Half of our guests are from Germany the rest come from all Europe. We wont try this barter. Little works for hospitality.
We will offer you, like for our tourist guest : all furnished apartment, electricity, gas, water, linens, towels, air condition or heating, wi-fi area for free, 2 bikes. The apartment is sea view, 40 meters from the sand beach.
We cant promise food because we offer a high value apartment. But you can try our wine...and the product of our land (lemon, almonds, olive oil,...) Or maybe trying we can change our opinion in the future and we can offer food. But in this moment we can't promise it.

For now the work consist helping us with maintenance of house (painting gates, fences, walls, woods), cleaning and washing in the homes baby sitting, and some others little gardening works (wood cutting..). We have a lemons farm then we need harvest the lemons. .
We have one more 10,000 sqm land with inside a little house. We will be slowly restoring the inside abandoned country little house with an interest in preserving the original features and natural character of the building and its landscaping with stone walls, little river and spring, old well, a lot of different fruits and trees.
We look forward to your request.
