The Experience

Our farm nestled in the hills of the Val di Noto. We always need help with manual work, design and construction of new buildings, working the land and taking care of all crops. All our animals also require care and a clean place to stay. We ask the help of some guys, there are already other girls who help with housework!

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!

It was really neat, there are moments for everything, I got to meet the three of them Cinzia, Antonio and Marco, although sometimes I may have felt alone, you can chat with some of the people who are guests and connect, that’s worth it, I really miss the homemade food now that I am in another voluntary hahaha, thanks Cinzia for your kindness, Antonio for your patience and Marco for the good moments we ve spent together. Plus it is a good spot to go to the towns Avola as Noto. Thanks! Felt a little down when I left. Thanks for everything!
