Escape the Rat Race to Become an Italian Farmer with Airbnb

January 17, 2019 OTA News No Comments

Airbnb and Wonder Grottole, a local NGO that promotes urban regeneration, are turning dreams into reality through the once in a lifetime chance to escape the drudgery of day to day life on an Italian sabbatical in the beautiful village of Grottole.  

Located on the top of a hill in southern Italy’s picturesque province of Matera is the small village of Grottole, but with only 300 inhabitants in its historic centre and more than 600 empty homes, it is at risk of disappearing and needs support. To help breathe new life into the village, Airbnb is supporting Wonder Grottole to search for four people to volunteer as Experience and Home hosts for three months. They will be transformed from tourists into temporary citizens of the village where they will learn the Italian language, help run the community vegetable garden and learn how to cook delicious Italian dishes made from produce they will have grown themselves.
