Airbnb Is Offering People A Three Month, All Expenses Paid Stay In Italy


Partnering with a local non-profit, Wonder Grottole, Airbnb is giving four lucky people the chance to spend three months in Italy – all expenses paid.

The chosen four will be sent off to the scenic Mediterranean countryside to reside in the hillside village of Grottole where they will spend 90 days taking up language and cooking classes. Guests can even look forward to staying in a castle that dates back to the 10th century or on a bee farm and a whole load of pasta and wine, of course!

According to Airbnb, the village is currently ‘at risk of disappearing’ with close to 600 empty houses and only a population of 300 people. The company hopes its initiative will “breathe life into the local community and bring tourists back to the village.”

Airbnb’s incredible adventure will take place from June to August 2019. Applications close 17 February at midnight. For more information about the offer, visit the Airbnb site.
