The Experience

We are a Belgian/American couple living on a organic community based land with olive groves, fruit trees and a small vegetable garden. The 15 ha property is on terraced slopes with dry stone rock walls (without cement) on the Etna volcano and facing the Ionian sea and the mainland Calabria.

Ha sido un viaje que puedo recomendar, en especial si te apetece estar en contacto con la naturaleza. El sitio donde se duerme son habitaciones compartidas y son bastante cómodas. En cuanto al aprendizaje de la naturaleza no ha sido mucho ya que las tareas realizadas han sido en cuanto a construcción de casas y empaquetage de botellas de vino. Es una casa vegetariana y la comida es realizada por los voluntarios y/o hosts por lo que las calorías que se ingieren al día no son muchas. Hay libertad a la hora de administrarte las horas de trabajo desde el momento que eres autónomo en las tareas.
