San Francesco degli Aranci

If you like nature and gardening this is the place to be (in my point of view). this garden has a water source and it exists since 1315... it would be nice reactivate it as it was conceived. the garden is close to the sea and you can enjoy it the rest of the day or decide to stay in the garden and relax.

I am very friendly person, I can speak in different languages. I love my garden and I would like to see its re-birth. You can contact me with any questions you may have. I love to share the beauty of my place.

Marco was a fantastic host! He cared a lot about making us feel comfortable and having everything we needed in terms of food, tools and private spaces. He gave us a true south Italian experience and was very welcoming. We enjoyed cooking meals and going to the beach together. We also had the chance to meet some of his friends.

We would start the day with breakfast and work from 07:30 to 11:30/12:00. The work would manly involve restoration of the garden, building dead fences and creating some organization to an ancient Italian garden.

We highly recommend Marco and his project!

thanks Giovanna for your super nice words



Marco is a really nice guy and a caring person. He showed me the city and the most beautiful beaches near his place.
His garden is like a magic jungle, its really beautiful. And there are a lot of things to do, its hard work but its worth it. You will see your process every day.
I‘m looking forward to coming back again!
I really had a very good time here.
Thank You Marco!

I had an amazing stay with Marco at his magical garden San Francesco degli Aranci! Marco is such a wonderful person and he showed me around the local area where I met great people, learned about history, indulged in local cuisine, and enjoyed beautiful beaches. The work experience was structured but flexible and the work tasks were a joy to partake in (pruning fruit trees, building fences, clearing aqueducts etc). He would bring down delicious snacks to the garden as I worked such as orange slices, dates, cookies, espressos. The apartment was clean and homey. Until next time :)
