Airbnb is now looking for someone to live like a local in Italy for 3 months.

How about getting paid to go on vacation? In partnership with Wonder Grottole, an NGO, Airbnb is giving someone the ability to live the good life in a Grottole, a small village in the southern province of Italy. Grottole was built on a mountain is known for their pottery that is baked in caves, which are scattered around the hills. Humans have lived in the area dating back to the Paleolithic Period, but now, only 300 inhabitants in the historic center and over 600 empty homes, it is a place that is “endanger of disappearing.”

To help bring life back to the village, Airbnb and Wonder Grottole are looking for four lucky people to move to Grottole this summer and become Experience and Home hosts for three months. They will be trained for a month and immersed into community, living in traditional homes and spending time with residents to learn new skills including vegetable farming, honey harvesting, olive oil production, and pasta making. The four will in turn become hosts for incoming visitors, teaching them the skills they have learned. All proceeds from these Social Impact Experiences will be reinvested back into the village.

Sounds like an amazing experience and fun way to get away, and do a little good along the way. To apply for this once-in-a-lifetime experience, head over www.italiansabbatical.com.
