The Experience

I own a lovely B&B in the beautiful Piedmont region of Italy. Work activities include cleaning guest rooms after check-out, general cleaning of common areas, helping me cook and serve meals for guests, help running laundry, and help shopping for food and supplies. I run an elegant villa and am looking for someone who can mirror that quality. I'm working hard to rebrand the B&B as a quality establishment, so attention to detail is important.

Arlene, the host, was truly amazing! She made me feel completely comfortable and respected the entire time. She was always so grateful for anything I did to help out. Her communication was great, which helped everything go smoothly before and during the stay. She went above and beyond in so many ways, like helping me find a last minute covid test. Her B&B was gorgeous and so peaceful, I didn’t want to leave! This was an experience I’d recommend to all and one I will remember forever!

I had such a wonderful time at La Casa Celeste with Arlene. I highly recommend this experience to everyone. We were closed for most of the time I was there so the work was mostly cleaning and tending to the plants, which was all pretty easy and enjoyable.
Arlene is one of the most genuine and caring people I’ve met and she made sure I had the most incredible time! I was so sad when my time ended and would come back in a heartbeat!

Thank you, Sophia, for all of your help and hard work! La Casa Celeste B&B is sparkling clean because of you, and the gardens are looking beautiful. I'm thrilled I could host you, and I'll be sure to let the new owners know about you should you ever wish to return to Italy for another experience. I'm glad you enjoyed Asti, time with your aunt, and the other little surprises ;) Take care, safe travels, and I wish you all the best!!!

This was my first worldpackers experience and I could not ask for a better place. Arlene is an excellent host, friendly, with very good disposition to teach me and explain me the things I didn't understand. She is a strong, hardworker and very kind woman, that is always looking to improve her B&B and make it every day nicer and cozier. She has a beautiful B&B, all surrounded by nature and peace.
We worked hard but we also had so much fun! 100% recommendable.
P.S. She is an amazing cook!
Arlene, thank you for your patience, kindness, and also for receiving me and treating me so well!! :D
