    We are looking for a native English speaker who wants to spend 3/4 weeks max in august in northern Italy, nearby Venice.
    We are a typical Italian family of 4 people, My name is Nadia, I am 39 years old, my husband Pier is 44 years old and we have 2 daughters, Sofia (6 yo) and Anna (3 yo). We love outdoor activities, eating typical Italian food together (Pier cooks an excellent homemade pizza ), we laugh and we cooperate all together. We also love traveling and visiting new places.
    We spend our free time in our big garden with our friends and our relatives with and we often organize BBQ dinner. 😉

    Our goal is to learn English, for this reason we are looking for a native (or very good at) speaking English girl. The daily tasks are very "light" : normal house works and maybe looking after our two daughters.
    But we want to underline that we just want to improve our conversation skills in English.

    You will have a private single room and a shared bathroom.
    You will have plenty of free time to explore our amazing region.

    There are two major benefits
    First of all, you will spend your summer holiday in the beautiful and sunny region nearby Venice. In one hour you can reach a lot of amazing historical and quaint cities in the surroundings, like the stunning Venice, Padua, Vicenza, Verona, Cittadella, Asolo and so on.
    We live in Pove del Grappa, a small, nice and quiet village near Bassano del Grappa well known for its famous old bridge on the Brenta river. We are also close to the mountains, where we have a holiday house over there. In our surroundings it is possible to do a lot of activities like sports (trekking, biking, running, hiking, canoe, paraglinding) and cultural trips, if you love mountains, Dolomites (unesco world heritage) are very close.
    Our house is very close to the bus stop and to the Bassano del Grappa railway station.
