  • Description


    We are a married couple with a daughter aged 7, we live in a country house and we need help to manage the everyday issues of our lives. Alessandro works as a fireman and he enjoys some free time, I am busy writing for work, and our daughter is a homeschooler and she needs help with english and someone who likes to play with her. We also need a little help with the houseworks, instead the outside necessities are by the time suspended for the weather. This is something we usually attend in spring and summer, although there is always the possibility to do something in open air, from small to hard working, if it's not raining. The person we are looking for is someone who loves children, able to speak italian and english and willing to do something to spend his/her time playing and giving a little help in the house. The room we offer is nice and comfortable, with a private bathroom and living room, and private entrance, but it's connected to the rest of the house for the issue of the heating, working through wood, with an implant present in this side of the house.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers can enjoy a peaceful staying in the beautiful umbrian country, far from noises and busy roads. They can enjoy building dry walls or working in the woods, where you can meet foxes or fawns, squirrels and boars... They can get in touch with the world of homeschooling and meet families which made this educational choice. They can visit our surroundings, specially Trasimeno lake, reachable in 15 minutes driving.

  • Help


    In this time of the year, because of the weather conditions, we don't dedicate much time to garden works, instead we need help for housekeeping and childcare.

  • Accommodation


    We offer a two-places bedroom, with a window-door, and a private living room equipped with a sofa-bed and a table with chairs, and bathroom with shower. These rooms are connected to the ones we live in by a staircase and a door that can be closed, and they occupy our whole low flat. There is also a private entrance. During summer we need to use this part of the house only to make the machine washing, while during the cold season we access often to put wood in the fireplace, since this is our central heating source. Everything is in very good conditions. About meals, we eat everything and have no problems with vegetarian or vegan food. We usually have breakfast in the morning, lunch at about 1-2 pm and dinner at 8 . We like to cook.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our surroundings are beautiful: Trasimeno lake, San Casciano hot springs, Perugia. You can reach the historic centre in half an hour and any facilities in ten minutes, but a car is necessary. Thre is a public mini bus stop close, but it can drive you only to Perugia, adn it doesn't work very well. We can give our hosts a lift to a decent bus stop or visit together the places they like to go.
