Grottole is a tiny, beautiful town in southern Italy with approximately 2,186 residents. This summer, Airbnb is sending four people to temporarily up that number and learn how to cook and live like a true Italian in the process.
Airbnb’s Italian sabbatical program basically sounds like a dream come true. If selected, you’ll get to live in Italy from June to August, stay in a home in the center of Grottole, and immerse yourself in the local culture by taking language and cooking classes with locals. Make pasta with Rosa, grow local produce with Andrea, and explore the beehives with Rocco, a hair stylist/beekeeper/saffron producer. All expenses paid!
You’ll also volunteer for a local non-profit called Wonder Grottole, whose mission is to revitalize the town’s historical center (go ahead, take those ‘grams). A month into the trip, the lucky four will become co-hosts on Airbnb; your job will be to welcome guests to their room in the local community center or into a traditional home in the center of the village and show them around town.
To apply for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, submit an application before February 17, 2019 at 11:59 pm Central European Time (that’s 5:59 pm Eastern Standard Time)…and clear your summer schedule.
