  • Description


    We are Francesca, Marco, and Anita, our little daughter 24 months old. We also have a cute medium size dog called Leh, and two cats, Mina and Zar. Francesca is a PhD student in Human Rights and Marco an engineer, Anita attends a nursery school.

    Anita is very active, she sleeps little but she walks and runs and plays a lot.

    We live in a detached house in the countryside of Venice, that is reachable by bus in 30'. We have a wonderful garden where we try to cultivate some vegetable and fruits.
    The closest village where you can find bars, bakeries and pubs is 5' distant by bus (10' by bike), the distance from Mestre (bigger city) is 15' -20' by bus, it depends where you want to go. We are very close to a green park as well as nice promenades.

    Our daily routine is Marco going every weekday to the office in a close village while usually, Francesca works home-based. Sometimes Francesca has to go to Padua to the University, it depends on the period. Anita is at the kindergarten from 8.40 to 4.15, and usually, the baby sitter goes to pick her up but sometimes we have a grandmother to pick her up.

    We are two parents tired but also active: we love to go hiking in the mountain, exploring and travelling around the world. Marco's sport is climbing, while Francesca attends a gym. We like spending time with friends (now mostly families!).

  • Help


    We'd like you to help us with our daughter and garden. And of course, language practice!
    Babysit Anita sometimes instead of the babysitter or during the night, or when she's sick. Play or walk the dog, if you like. If you're an English native speaker and up for some proofreading of academic texts, this is also something you could do for us.
