  • Description


    Hi there! We are a young family of 4. Our little girl, Eva Luna, is three years old and she's a very fun and sociable little one! She's very peaceful and calm but also very active. She's a climber and fast walker and she would get anywhere before you even realise! therefore some help is more than welcome :) She's used to being around people and we would like her to be with people from around the world and start hearing some ENGLISH language, therefore we would prefer to host some workawayers from English-speaking countries. She's had workaway nannies since she was 8 months old, therefore she understand English very well. Our little boy, Ernesto, is one year old. He's an extremely fast crawler and he's learning to walk. He only met one workawayer as the pandemic started right after he was born, and we haven't hosted anyone since then. He's a very sweet little rascal and we would love him to meet a lot of interesting travellers just like his big sister.

    We lived in London for a few years and came home three years ago, so we are fluent in English.
    We now live in Salento, this little paradise in the South of Italy. We have sun, beaches, culture, lots of festivals and a delicious cuisine. It's worth spending some time of your life here!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Spending time here will be very enriching for you as Salento is a place where traditions are still alive and part of everyday life. You can get some free cooking classes as Elisa is a good chef and learn about sound system culture as Riccardo is a sound engineer and has got a huge sound system. Then, if you just google "Salento" you can get a clear idea of what beauties you can explore here!

  • Help


    We need you to spend time with our little girl, speak English to her, play with her, do some babysitting while we are both at work, help us do some housekeeping and cleaning, feeding and grooming the cats, some gardening.

    Basically, just be part of our family!
