Help needed from September 2019 and on.( 25 and older). We prefer couples but make exceptions.

After many years of experience and due to the logistic of this island ,bad seas in the winter and much more we prefer longer stays of at least 3 weeks rather a month. We do make exeptions for single helpers with experience only older than 25.
We are a family of 3 Donkeys, 6 cats,Chickens,Harley the Rooster ,"Oliva" the Sausage dog , "Ella Bella Trovatella " and the last rescued dog " Mina Moo" all adorables creatures.
The idea of this small but very Unique place started as a dream and now has become a place to appreciate simplicity and love for nature and animals.Our Dream is that one day the farm becomes a permaculture center where we can all learn.

"Villa Liberta" is self sufficient with Solar power and rain water. There is no roads to get to, just a hike up and lots of good energy to get there. It has the mountain and the sea view. We have been planting Olives and fruit trees that need constant care and water during the dry months. The Donkeys are very spoil and loving, and they spend half of day free roaming.

Panarea in one of the most beautiful islands in the Med.Right below the Villa is located the most beautiful bay, ideal for swimming even in December.

We invite you to experience this magical place and hope you love it and respect it as we do.

Part of the requirements are:
1)Experience with the care of animals, you must be able to do the feeding, brushing of the Donkeys , basic knowledge of building fences for around the plants and trees.
2) knowlodge of basic tools including , drills , sanders, etc.
3)Experience with gardening and been able to keep an organized, clean environment.
4)We live a healthy life style, we prefer active people who can cooperate and contribute with all the different aspects of day/farm life including the preparation of meals, cleaning of all the share spaces.
5)you must not be afraid to get your hands dirty, the farm is a very rustic, dusty but beautiful
place.

There is plenty of time to relax, enjoy a great meal with wine and share experiences with good company.Many of our great helpers/friends come back more than once over the years.

Panarea offers a mild winter climate ,you will be able to swim in the sea, beautiful mountain walks, mushroom picking in the winter. If you are looking for a quiet get away place then this is your dream island.
