We are a funny and not too ordinary family living in the countryside of Polignano a mare, (Apulia, south of Italy). We love nature and we care about respecting the environment, we live with one amazing dog indoor and 2 crazy cats outdoor. My boyfriend is half Argentinian, very hard worker and he travelled a lot in his life; me, I have been living for a long time studying and working in the north of Italy, in Spain and in Uk. Our baby is 1 year old and he always smiles :)

The countryside is very relaxing and when you want to have fun town is the perfect place, you will meet a lot of funny people.
We need one Volunteer to help basically staying with the baby and me while I am organising and doing stuffs at home, shopping around, or working at the bar for 4-5hours per day 5 days a week. Helping with house keeping would be also appreciated :) You will always be both with me and the baby in the helping hours. And of course speaking English with us, I think this would be a great benefit for the baby, although his young age.
We also need a second volunteer with DIY skills who can help with general maintenance, refurbishing the old house, and small eco projects. And if you like gardening you will find lots of things to do!
Hours for babysitting from 11 to 4 pm or from 4 to 8 pm. More or less..we will see and of course we will choose together the best solution for everyone :)

When available, You would have a bedroom with an en suit bathroom. If not, During summer we set up a tent in the garden, with mattress, pillow, sheets and blanket. At the moment I am very busy at work so I can't always cook for us, but I would provide food for volunteers and they could use the kitchen whenever they want.
Our town is unique, the sea is very beautiful with peculiar caves to see, and there are many places to visit around Polignano a mare, such as Alberobello, Valle d'Itria, Ostuni, Monopoli, Lecce and Salento area. You can both rent a car or take a train.
