This listing is a Last minute host. They have let us know that they are looking for help immediately as well as at other times of the year.

  • Description

    Description

    We are a French/German couple with two young daughters living an international life between France and Italy and communicating in four different languages on a daily basis. Our 5- and 3-year olds already speaks 3 languages fluently, in July we will have a little baby boy as well.

    We split our time between our town house in France (Mulhouse close to Basel, Freiburg, Zurich and Bern) and our countryhouse in Italy close to the eternal city of ROME. 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 with renovating, work in the garden and around the house (strong arms). We are ideally looking for a strong male from any national background for a couple of weeks.

    We are sure you will love the area, the people and our house. Ideally, you are between 20-70 years old and enjoy Italian country life and French city life, good and healthy food, and are culturally and historically interested in the region of Alsace on the one hand and Rome and Lazio on the other hand. 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 weeks. 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, German and Italian cooking).
