    Dear workawayer,
    thank you for taking some time to read our profile!
    After a ''gap year'', we're ready to host again ^_^

    We're a young and easygoing family :) I'm Clotilde, you can call me Clo, my husband is Jacopo, and the two sis are Anita (13y in August2024) and Olivia (11y in November2024).
    With us also 3cats (Agata, Tito and Malù) and a dog (Siria). They stay also inside the house, so it's important you love animals and you're NOT allergic.
    Please note, Siria is a bit shy at the beginning, she’ll bark you the first day, but then she'll be quite and so sweet with you too!

    We are based in the north of Italy, Piedmont, in the center of Asti, just few meters from the Cathedral. The house is very big, and, although we live in the center of the town, we can enjoy a nice and peaceful garden.
    Our town is well connected by train/bus to others nice cities like Alba, Turin, Milan, Genova and the 5 terre....

    Normally we have breakfast all together around 7,15am, lunch around 1,30/2:00pm and dinner around 8:00pm. But when girls are off from school we haven’t fixed time for meals.
    We don’t have special food habits, we like ALL the food, also from others countries.
    We have a typical Italian sweet breakfast, with caffè or cappuccino, biscuits or croissants. At lunch we often have pasta, rice, gnocchi or agnolotti, while at dinner meat, eggs, fish, cheese, vegetables, and once a week pizza!
    We don’t smoke and we don’t drink alcohol, a part beer and wine sometimes.

    -Our daily routine:
    Girls go to school from Monday to Friday, from 8am to 1.30pm, but they stay at school until 4pm on Tuesday and Thursday. (They’re home from school for summer holiday from middle June to the middle September, and a couple of weeks during Christmas and Easter festivities). Anita started secondary school in September 2022, she studies English+Spanish and a musical instrument: guitar! Olly is going to start secondary school this September 2024.
    Anita plays Basketball three times a week (on Monday, Tuesday and Friday afternoon) and Olly skates 4 times a week(on Monday,Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday afternoon). Not during August. Probably they’ll join a summer camp for few weeks during July or august.

    -Our Job:
    I run a b&b for 5 years, but I've close it in January 2023, and now I'm working in the municipal office. I work half day 3 times a week and all the day on Tuesday and Thursday.
    My husband has a business in photography and more precisely in the production of ceramic pictures(through a special process, you can apply photographs printed on paper on ceramic plaques to cook them in a special oven).

    Someone fluent in English, ideally a native English speaker.
    From this year we’interested in Spanish too, since Anita is studying it at school.
    But I want to let you know we carefully consider applications from all workawayers!

  • Arbeit


    -We're looking for someone who'd like to entertain actively the girls, teaching them English or Spanish in funny ways. More Anita&Olivia listen, more they learn! This point is really important for us, so please, do not consider out family if you're too shy and silent, and you're not ready to get involved having fun with them.They're no more babies just in need of supervision, now they need to be involved.

    -It's absolutely not necessary, but It's great if you can play a musical instrument.

    -We'll share daily household chores. Nothing too tiring, just an help around the house like a family member. We don't expect you clean up everyday! You can help me in the kitchen (sweeping the floor, charging/discharging the dishwasher, maybe cooking sometimes, if you like it) and cleaning/tidying the girls area(their bedroom and bathroom).
