  • Description

    Description

    We are a French/German couple with two young daughters living an international life between Switzerland and Italy and communicating in four different languages on a daily basis. Our 3-year old already speaks 3 languages fluently.

    We split our time between our country house in Switzerland (close to Basel and Bern) and our countryhouse in Italy close to the eternal city of ROME. We spend March to May in Switzerland, June to September in Italy, October to December in Switzerland, January and February in Italy. We have two big houses with large gardens and in both of our homes you would have your own room and bathroom for yourself.

    We are looking for someone to help us educate our children on a pre-school level, prepare them for reading and writing, teach them languages, discover the fun of learning about nature and culture, bring them to the playground, physical activities, and so on. We are actually looking for a German native speaker at the moment with some experience in teaching children.

    We are sure you will love the area, the people and our house. Ideally, you are between 20-70 years old and enjoy Italian and Swiss country life, good and healthy food, and are culturally and historically interested in the region of Rome and Lazio (no precondition, of course, you would just enjoy the experience even more). You will easily find friends among the very open and friendly locals and especially among the many expats of Swiss, French, English, German, or American origin.

    We are looking for a healthy, energetic individual who would like to stay with us for a few months. We have enough space to accommodate you. You will have your own independent bedroom and bathroom, and, of course, high speed internet. You will share the kitchen, the living room, the large garden and several terraces with us. We will provide all meals (homemade French and Italian cooking).

    We would like you to work with our children about 5 hours a day. We hope to find a German native speaker.

    We spend March to May in Switzerland, June to September in Italy, October to December in Switzerland, January and February in Italy. In your free time you can visit the eternal city of Rome and all its sights in its close surrounding, such as Frascati, the Villa Hadriana in Tivoli, the Etruscan sites close to Viterbo, but also Napoli or Florence can be reached within 2 hours and make for a great overnight trip. You can also visit Assisi, the birthplace of St. Francis, who founded the Franciscan religious order in the town in 1208. You can spend a day on the beach sunbathing, or hiking in the mountains (Apennines). We also have several pools in the area, one even natural hot springs.
    When we are in Switzerland, you can go explore all of Switzerland and bordering France and Germany on your weekends.
