The Experience

Hi, Ciao, Priviet, Labas! I am Elios, I am living in a Villa located on the top of a beautiful bay called Acquaviva. The villa was built 40 years ago so I need somebody who is able to help me build a wood house. In exchange, I can give you accommodation, breakfast, and lunch (lunch on shift days) near the wonders of the Salento region. You'll help me from around 9am to 2pm and then you're free to go for a swim at the beach 5 minutes away from us!

Elios é uma pessoa boa e me ajudou muito! O lugar é incrível, com bastante natureza e bem perto da praia (máximo 5 minutos caminhando). Fiquei em um quarto com banheiro e cozinha, inicialmente sozinho mas depois compartilhando com outro voluntário. Houveram alguns problemas que criaram situações bem desagradáveis com relação ao horário de trabalho, alimentação e água quente para tomar banho. Os horários nunca são os mesmos, algumas vezes trabalhamos das 9 as 14 com almoço as 15:30/16, outras das 11 as 16 com almoço as 17:30/18, mas outras tbm esperamos até 21...Me chamem para outras dúvidas!!

Thank you Henrique for your review.
As I had explained to you face to face this is not a very job, it's more an experience.
For this reason I cannot gave to you or others volunteers a timetable, it's not a job !
As you know, I used to get up at 6.30 but I tried to wait when all valunteers were ready.
Most of the time I start to receive help from some of you and then when the others were ready also from other volunteers.
I was customize other things in base of yours waking up.
You took this experience like a job and for this reason I truly suggest you as a volunteers for other hosts !!!



Purtroppo sono dovuta andare via prima per un problema personale, però l'esperienza è stata super positiva. È stata la mia prima esperienza ed è stata molto bella, il posto è assolutamente meraviglioso, la cala dell'acquaviva è una delle spiagge più belle che abbia mai visto. Il lavoro è ok e gli orari sono rispettati. Elio è un host meraviglioso, sempre super attento a qualsiasi bisogno :)
Spero di poterci ritornare e lo consiglio assolutamente!
