Program Details

I'm looking for a volunteer in summer for breakfast preparing, housekeeping and cleaning. It's a very simple work (only half day) becouse there are no so many rooms for guests. I will teach you how to prepare best espresso, cappuccino and little local snacks and little tips to create a good feeling with travellers. Location is in the city center and you can get every place in few minutes, at the evening there are lots of place for stay with tourists and locals until late. I've some bicycles for moving around the town and to discover the canyon park in front of Matera. Ionian sand beaches are not far.
