" NEXT AVAILABILITY any time in 2022"... Hello people!!. I am Simona and my husband is Gaetano we are both young and fun (i think) and have two beautiful boys, Michael and Nicholas aged 11and 9. We don't accept shot stay😉.... I work in a supermarket as a shop assistant and in a bar too, my husband is in the Italian Air Force. We have one cat (Diego) and a BIG black rescue puppy , called Sebastian!!!!
We've had many positive workawayer experiences, they have all become like family and they regularly come to visit us.
We consider ourselves to be a loving, active and crazy family and our two boys will definitely keep you on your feet, i promise you will never be bored! If you consider us we would like you to take this seriously and treat it as any other job but to also treat this as a life experience where you can meet new people, possibly learn a new language and discover a new way of life.

Help around the house
We are great cookers and u can practice and exchange your recipes with us. U can also join an Italian class in the city and learn Italian.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We want someone who is fun, loving and caring who will sing and dance (badly) with me ;) and will keep the boys entertained! We'll need you to pick them up from school etc... We don't just want someone to work for us, we want someone to be part of our family, a big sister or brother for the boys! We are looking for a girl or boy who is mother tongue is English as we wish for our two children to become completely bi-lingual. Both the boys speak incredibly good English but now we are working on maintaining and perfecting their ability. We would like you to teach them English by playing games, puzzles, going to the park etc… Me and my husband can speak English very well, so there would be no need for you to learn Italian unless you wanted to.
You will always have two days off a week.(Saturday-sunday), While you are here we would like you to help out with a little bit of housework, nothing serious, just things like hovering, emptying the dishwasher, sweeping and other normal house jobs. :D
We don't have rules on what time you get home at night or if you stay out and come back the next day, however, we would like you to tell us when you go out. We would like you to have fun but want to keep you safe :)
We would love it if you ate with us, and spent time with us as we want you to become and feel a part of the family, but, of course this isn't compulsory!
We live in a three levelled house on the top floor is the bedrooms and one bathroom; you will have your own bedroom with a desk, tv, book shelf, wardrobe and cupboard. On the middle floor we have the lounge that leads to the kitchen and another bathroom. On the bottom floor we have another sitting area, a bathroom and another kitchen. The bathroom downstairs also has a shower that you can have as your own if you prefer.
The area where we live is called Paese, it is close to Treviso. Just 25 minutes to Venice by train. In Paese there are lots of bars and café’s, we have a post office and supermarkets all within walking distance. You can use the bike and ride into both Paese center or to close by towns.
There is an italian class in Treviso in the mornings where you can go twice a week,(winter time) we will be happy to pay for you to attend. The previous au pairs struggled because they found it hard to communicate with the teacher as he didnt speak english, however, everyones different it's worth a try if youre interested.
