  • Description


    Ciao! Are you ready to live a great and pleasant adventure? 
    We are an happy and easygoing family and we will be very happy to welcome you in our home like part of the family!
    We are looking for a caring girl/boy, who likes spending time with kids of course, English mother tongue or fluent in eng, willing to take care of our 2 sweet boys while we are at work!

    We hosted other workawayers before and you can read their feedback, we are used to hosting also girls with another program and I can give you their contacts, so you could have extra feedbacks about us! :-)

    We are an Italian family: Silvia, Dave and two beautiful and nice sons Matteo (11 yo in Aug 2019) and Niccolò (7 yo) . We are a very close family and we like spending time together. Matteo loves all the sports in particular Basketball and Soccer, Niccolò (Nick) loves playing with lego; they are very friendly with each other and they play a lot together. They are quiet and polite.

    We live in Venaria, a small town in northern Italy very close to Turin and well connected with public transports (30min by bus and you are in Turin center). From Turin you can reach Milan (1 hr by Train), Venice (3 hrs by train) Rome (4 hrs by Train) and all the main beautiful cities in Italy. We are near the mountains and the sea. We don’t miss anything! 

  • Help


    We will ask you basically to take care of our boys.
    You will stay with them starting from 3-4 p.m (we can agree it) playing with them (outside if possible or inside), also inventing something to do together. I hope in a guy talkative (to encourage them speaking in eng) and very interactive with the kids. Usually we back home from work approx. at 7:00/7:30pm, and it would be very amazing if you could stay with us for dinner sometimes! We ask you also max 1 evening babysitting a week.
    We are very flexible and I hope to find someone flexible with us!
