Semi-Organic farm on the Sicily hills.
We Have a farm on the Sicilian hills, we have few animals to take care and fruit plant and vegetable garden.
At moment we are preparing for the "Vendemmia" (Grape piking and wine making all in the traditional way) this will be in September.
We are looking people, not necessarily expert to help and that would like to experince the "Vendemmia"
At the same time for the rest of the year we are looking for peoplke helping in fruit pick (Figs, Almonds, Apricots, Cestnuts, Wolnuts, olives etc) or keep the ground clean according to the period of the year.
We offer a place to sleep in the house situated 12 km from the farm. We go to the farm by car or depend of the task to do there we are camping at the farm.
The camping at the farm is a working progress, at moment we have tent, camping shower, cooking place and a lot of space, we are in the process to build a toilet too. We are looking for people with great ideas to build, sugest and help to make the camping the more confortable possible :)!
In your time off you can visit the magnific storic centre the Alž or go to trekking in the mountain behind the village and much more this when we are coming or you can walk long the beach and if the weather is goo swimming in the beautifull sea of Sicily. We are at 15km from Taormina that it is easy to reach by train or bus.
When We are staying in the house at the sea side there is the possibility to give some help in the house for painting, building, etc.
If you have some special skills or projects that you like to propose and start you are very welcome to do it.
We are open to any suggestions to improve the place and make it more confortable to everyone will come :)


At this time we can offer just accomodation, and you will have an appartmernt where you can stay, where you have a kitchen to use, and you have to provide for the food for yourself.
Depend on where we stay (Farm or house at the sea side) and of the project we are working on we will be lunch or dinner togheter sometimes both.
Most of the time we will ask 2-3 hours help per day or if you prefere do more and have some day off that is fine with us, you can organize your time as you like according to the task to do.
When we will do a special prpject we can require more hours per day but that is when we will provvide food as well and then depend of how many houser you can have days off.
We can discuss everything and find the right balance and find best solution for everyone.

Usually even in the farm work season we are very relaxing, becouse the work has to be fun :).


Offering from few days to one week or more camping adventure on the land, to do some cleaning around the property (remove weed, burning branches, cutting tree branches.
The place is on the valley in front of the village, with chestnut tree, almonds tree, walnut tree, olive tree and some other fruit tree (figs, apricot, cherry).
There is tent available and a camping shower to use, cooking place and we are in progress to biuld a camp toilet too.
We will take everything very easy, working few hours, take a walk to see around the land, relax on the hamaca, work a bit more, cooking the food (we are going to cook all the food in open fire that we will make ourself).
We probably will spend one of to days in the house at the village to have some nice shower and relax in a normal bed.
