This is a small farm located on Mount Etna, in the village of Puntalazzo di Mascali, 700 meters above sea level, composed of some lava stone buildings surrounded by about 4 hectares of terraced land, where I cultivate strictly organic grapes from must, cherries, hazelnuts and oil olives. I live on the farm with my two collaborators from Wagira from Sri Lanka and Asen from Bulgaria. The agricultural work takes place mainly from April to June (maintenance of terraced ladders, work in the vineyard, hazelnut orchard, cherry harvesting, olive trees), and from early August to the whole of October (harvesting hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts, olives). I follow and often do the work personally, but in my absence Wagira and Asen are always present. Up to now I have occasionally hosted passing travelers, Buddhist monks and artists in search of inspiration, and now it stimulates me the opportunity to host WWOOFERS eager to experience this place and this time within nature and the possibility to exchange experiences and points of view. Accommodation in a single or double room with bathroom, in one of the farm buildings, where there is a communal kitchen, with the possibility of having our main meal together. The farm has a WI-FI connection.
The territory in which I live, between Catania and Taormina, offers many opportunities for recreation nearby, from walks on Etna to the sea at Taormina and Marina di Cottone, or visits to Catania, the Nebrodi mountains etc., public transport is not good so we need to be well organized!
