Hello we are an Italian family with 2 young daughters who are 5 and 7 years old. We live in the hills just near Padova in a little touristic village called Arquà Petrarca.
We love meeting new people, and having them in our house. We had a great experience last year hosting an australian girl for 6 months.
I work in my family business, we manufacture design furniture, and My wife Reika has a yoga studio in Arquá. We are both very sporty, we love cycling and doing outdoor activities. We enjoy cooking healthy italian food with natural and homemade ingredients.
Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
They will live exactly like a member of our family, having the chance to live with us all the gathering and social moments. They will base here to visit different parts of our beautiful country, counting on all our support. They will spend time with the kids and with my wife experiencing our everyday life in a small itlian village, cook together and learn genuine italian recepies (homemade pasta, pizza, sauces, ...). They will have the chance to do yoga classes with my wife.
We are looking for someone who likes spending time with kids and who can be patient in talking to them in english and teaching the basics of this language. We ask to spend approximately 2 to 3 hours with the kids in the afternoon after school, within 4 and 7 PM, but not every day as they have different sport activities during the week. Few hours in the morning during weekends as well. We ask to keep the room clean and tidy and to help inside the house just like all the other members of the family do. We will take in charge all the food and accomodation costs.
