We are a family consisting of mom (Simona), dad (Michele) and two kids Evan (10 y.o.) and Evelyn (7 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 primary school, grade 5. He plays soccer every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday and he has horse lesson on Saturday.
Evelyn is a careful, patient and very curious girl. She’s attending the primary school, grade 2. She has piano lesson on Wednesday, Aerial Dance on Friday and horse lesson on Saturday.
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 and catch the schoolbus at 7.45 am. The school starts at 8.00 am and finish at 4.00 pm. We have dinner at 7.30/8.00 pm and the kids go to sleep at 9.30 pm.
We give a pocket money if the WA stay for at least one month.
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 the eery culture around the world.
That's why during the dinner time we like to talk with our WA about their family, their country and so on.
We are welcoming, caring and positive people. I hope you will be a friend for us!

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.
