  • Description


    We are a family of four (Angela, Massimiliano, Nanà and Michi) and we have a dog, Totoro.
    We live in Bologna, a city in northen Italy.
    We need some help with keeping our home clean, taking Totoro for a walk, talking with us in english and looking after Nanà, our five years old daughter and Michi that was born in the end of 2017.

    Totoro the dog is a golden retriever. He is big but adorable.
    Nanà is a very calm and well behaved little girl and Michi is a nice little boy.

    Massimiliano works in IT and Angela is at home looking after the children.
    We all speak English, except Michi that can't speak at all, Nanà understands and speaks Italian e English.

    SUMMER TIME 2019
    During the summer we're in Sardinia at the beach, we need a person who can help Angela with the kids three days a week and some cleaning.
    We will close to the most beautiful beach in Europe and to Cagliari, the main city of the island.
    We can host only one person, cause the house is small.

    All the family will be back to Bologna.
    Bologna is a lovely, old city in northen Italy, full of cultural and artistic events.
    It's also well connected with the most important Italian cities like Milan (1h by train), Florence (45m by train), Rome (1.5h by train) and Venice (1.5h by train).

    We are looking for someone that will be part of our family, likes to share experiences, time, recipes.
    We love cooking and eat all together. The workawayers can join us in our daily lunch and diner, or cook if they prefer.

    We can provide fast internet access.
