Beautiful Family! I miss them so much! They treated me very very good, tasks for me were cleaning the kitchen, bedrooms, washing clothing. For men the work is a little bit more tough but is just during morning time, then the rest of the day is off and you can do anything you like. They gave the 3 meals for free and so delicious! Cinzia was always cooking for us. They are very nice people.



The farm is a really nice place, they have lots of dogs, cats, fruit trees. The food is good and it's really enough, they let you cook if you want to.
I had to do extra jobs, heavier than housekeeping and cleaning. we only got the hard work to do. Like construction stuff
I just think they should specify at the description before you have to do it
If it was as they describe I would stay longer
Anyway was a good experience, Marco and Cinzia are nice and welcoming
Antonio has his traditional Italian way and he's not polite or kindful
Thanks for the experience, hope to see you again



I had a really nice experience in Masseria. Even though I had to leave it earlier because personal problems, time spent here was nice. Tasks are easy, preparing breakfast, cleaning the bungalows and doing the laundry. Always in the morning and sometimes also in the evening. But you can make your plans to enjoy Noto or Avola during the rest of the day. In summer is too hot and the nearest beach is about 1 hour by walk or 15 min by car.
I am vegetarian and Cinzia always cooks some vegetarian dishes for me. She is very nice and kind. Thank you Cinzia and Marco for my experience here.

My experience in U Samborgia was amazing. Cinzia, Antonio and Marco are generous people. The tasks are easy. If you like the Italian food this place is perfect, you will eat a lot... they cook delicious. You will have time to visit near cities like Noto, Avola, Siracusa, even Catania. Now I have an Italian family and i know that as soon as possible I will be there again. Thank you for everything.
Tip: don’t use Vodafone SIM card, It doesn’t work in this place.



It was one of the best experiences of my life. The farm is very beautiful and the animals are very cute. Cinzia, Antonio and Marco made me feel part of their family, they are very hospitable people, the food they cook is delicious and the work is simple so I had a lot of time to know Noto, Avola, Siracusa among other things.
I'm going to miss you! I will be visiting you again soon! Thanks for everything!
Grazie mille Cinzia, mi mancherai!
