  • Description


    Attention: looking from March 2024 - 3 months minimum.

    We are a family consisting of mom (Simona), dad (Michele) and two kids Evan (11 y.o.) and Evelyn (8 y.o.).
    We live with our dog Rohan in a nice indipendent house with garden, close to the center of Robecco.

    Evan is a very active boy, very funny, sociable; he likes to play hide and seek, soccer, or run in the garden. He’s attending the middle school (grade 6). He plays soccer every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
    Evelyn is a careful, patient and very curious girl. Sheis attending the third grade in the primary school (grade 3). She has piano lesson on Wednesday, Aerial Dance on Monday and horse lesson on Friday.
    VERY IMPORTANT: Evan is celiac and has a special Gluten Free diet. We have gluten free bread, pasta and biscuits in a separate pantry.

    They wake up at 7.00 am.
    Evelyn takes the schoolbus at 7.45 am. The school starts at 8.00 am and finish at 4.00 pm.
    Evan will ride to the school with a few friends at 8.00 am and will be back around 2.00 pm.
    We have dinner at 7.30/8.00 pm and the kids go to sleep at 9.30 pm.

    Michele smokes and we accept smokers, just please be careful to smoke outside.
    I am sportive and go running twice a week. I don't smoke but we drink wine sometimes for dinner 😉
    We have a true Italian culture and we are very curious and interested to every culture around the world.
    That's why we like to talk, during the dinner time, with our WA about their culture, their country and so on.
    We are welcoming, caring and positive people. I hope you will be a friend for us!

  • Accommodation


    The workawayer will have an entire apartment, independent but adjoining to our house. With separate entrance from the garden; fully equipped kitchen, living room with tv, bedroom and bathroom. Usually we eat together with the worker for dinner; for lunch we are never home, so the worker will eat alone but I ask (every week) what he wants and buy for him/her the food. Breakfast is the same.
    We give a fully equipped kitchen and they can cook on their own. There's a frige, a freezer, a hoven, kitchen fires, crockery ...
    We live just upstairs. There are stairs inside that connect the two houses, and stairs outside to reach the garden.
    We'll share only the laundry room.

    Robecco Sul Naviglio is a nice town connected to Magenta with the autobus (5 minutes); in Magenta there is the subway that takes you to the center of Milan.

    The medieval town of Robecco, quiet but with its own elegance, boasts several nobleman's villas.
    The village of Robecco sul Naviglio stands on a territory rich in history that saw settlements already in Roman times and then developed in the Lombard and Carolingian periods until, in the medieval period, it became a possession of the Abbey of Morimondo and the Basilica of Sant ' Ambrogio, before passing into the possessions of the Visconti and then of the Sforza.
