The Exchange

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!
