Région: PiedmontIf you like children and living in a noisy and lively environment, if you enjoy outdoor activities such as walking, swimming, playing and visiting places, if you like the countryside and the hills, if you appreciate good food and good wine, if you're curious about experiencing the Italian lifestyle… well, we may be the right family for you! We are a noisy, big Italian family, and would love to welcome guests for 3-4 weeks in October 2014. We live in Piedmont (North-West of Italy), in a small village in the Langhe & Roero area, a Unesco World Heritage Site, well known for its excellent wines and food, surrounded by green hills, vineyards and castles. The weather is usually fine and warm, and there are plenty of events like town fairs and many places to visit. Our area is a good basecamp for visiting the North-West of Italy: we are 1 hour from Turin, 1.5 hours from the mountains (Alps), 2 hours from Milan, 1.5 hours from the seaside (Liguria). A few more details about our family: I’m Virginia (38, art director and web designer), I live with my husband Davide (38, driver) and our two kids: Adelaide (10) and Corrado (6). We firmly believe in cultural exchange between different Countries, and we’re trying to bring up our children as citizens of the world. Both our kids are bilingual (Italian/English), so you won't have big communication problems with them. We prefer Workawayers with a basic knowledge of Italian, tough, in order to improve the level of communication with the rest of the family. The kids have already spent a few Summers with aupairs and workawayers, so they're used to having international guests. In general, we are curious people and love learning about everything (nature, science, arts, history, etc).
