Program Details

Usually we are a group of friends, including my partner Antonella and my son Pablito that are in the house only sometimes, trying to make the old house better day by day. We care most about HOSPITALITY rather than money. Our goal is to make the respectful guests staying comfortable and happy.

Activities & Shift

The daily activities consist in loading/unloading the washing machine and dishwasher, preparing the two rooms for guests and keeping the guest toilet clean. The cleanliness is VERY IMPORTANT. Because we are in the countryside it is not easy to keep the house clean, which is why I need the help.


Very relaxing atmosphere, no rules except respect each other.
