We are four people, a married couple with two little boys. The British husband is a successful painter and is frequently in England for business and the American mother is a writer and remains in Italy with the two school-aged boys at a mountaintop country estate. The boys go to school every day when it is in session. We want to host a warm-hearted child minder to help the mother run the household joyfully. The two boys are bilingual and speak Italian and English. The family speaks English at home.

We live in a culturally rich area bordering Tuscany-Umbria with many possible daytrips to cultural events. Nearby are the medieval towns of Gubbio, Assisi, Perugia, Siena, Florence, Cortona, etc. We live in a luxurious large country estate dating back to the seventeenth century with a pool on top of Mt Corona. We want to share with you the panoramic views of castles, olive groves and verdant mountain range. Pristine location frozen in time. Day hikes and mountain biking are popular on our quiet road.
We are seeking an experienced and warm-hearted child minder to help with two children ages 5 and 6. We will check your childcare references as we do not want to host a smoker, drug user or person with a criminal record, or lack of experience with young children. Also help keeping the house tidy, helping with kids' laundry and planning meals. If you you like to stay for at least two months (longer preferred) please apply with childcare references.
Private bedroom and bathroom. Food is eaten communally with family and you will help in the menu planning and meal preparation.
You will not have to work everyday. On your days off you can use the bus station for any trips you want to make further afield, connecting to train stations if you wish. If you want to bring your own car, there is parking for it here. We have lots of experience hosting au pair girls who are still very close with the family. We want the child-minder to feel part of the family, so stay long enough for this to occur.
