If you’ve been reconsidering your 9 till 5 lately then we have some very good news for you. Airbnb is offering up quite possibly the greatest job of all time, and the best part is, you don’t even need any experience to get it.

Picture this: for three months you get to live in Grottole, a tiny, picturesque village in southern Italy, enjoying their sun-drenched summer whilst learning to cook a mean bowl of pasta. Yep, when we said dream job, we meant it. 

Even better, Airbnb has four spots to fill, which means more chances for you to live your best life. 

The job is part of the company’s Italian sabbatical program which aims to immerse people in the local culture as well as discovering how to speak, act and cook the Italian way. 

Your daily itinerary includes Italian language lessons over brekky, growing local produce in the vegetable garden with Andrea, cooking lessons at lunch with Rosa, exploring the countryside in a classic Italian Ape Piaggio in the afternoon and you’ll finish the day with aperitivo hour in town. 

As well as carb loading, you’ll also be tasked with volunteering for a local non-profit called Wonder Grottole, whose mission is to revitalize the town’s historical centre featuring a castle that dates back to the 10th Century. 

For the first month Airbnb will hook you up with some sweet digs, then you and your three new best friends will become co-hosts, welcoming guests to their accommodation and showing them around town. This means exploring the local wine bars and pizza places is a job requirement.  

If you want to have a European summer you’ll never forget, head here. Applications close before February 17.
