we are a nice family living in the beautiful Tuscany. We are Chiara and Enrico with our sons: Matteo ( 6 ) and the little Diego (2). We live in Cecina, a little city at the seaside, close to Livorno, Pisa and Volterra, in the heart of Tuscany, in the famous Bolgheri's wine-countryside.
We are very friendly, openmind and will be glad to welcome a Workawayer
We are looking for an english speaking girl who likes spend nice time with kids, helping us in the dayly life, chatting with us and sharing our family life.
We need a nice responsible, chatting girl who can help in looking after the littleone and who likes play with the older helping him improving his english.
We like spend nice time with friends and often in the week-end we travel in the wonderful Tuscany. We like biking, walking in the pineforest, swimming and in summer going to the beach almost every day.
We pay attention to the quality of food. We have a mediterranean diet. When it is possible, we eat grandfather's vegetable garden products and hand-made olive oil. We like cooking and sometime making cakes and pizza.
We had previuos experiances with Workaway during the last four summers and both were fantastic! We only expected some help with language and housework but we met a very wonderfull girls, they became a very good friends and really part of our family. They came back to pay a visit during the winter and we text often still now!!!

Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
feel the real italian atmosphere, learn about italian recepy and be with friendly people
We will be delighted to host a cheerful english, we prefer british or irish, mother tongue girl who wants to give us support with the kids. Sometime she would act as baby-sitter or help in houseworks... but Chiara will be mostly helping her. We need some little help to look after the kids when they are not at school or playgroup.
She would mostly spend her time just talking proper english to all of us: take care of our child speaking her language (playing, telling stories, reading books and singing english songs) and have conversation with parents. Matteo learnt a lot with our previous nanny and he is able to understand and talk in english quite well for his age so we don't care if she dont speack italian at all and we prefere speack english in the house.
I'll be happy to healp you to learn some italian and to know our culture and traditions
We could accord with her and our needs time by time. It's depend on the period (playgroup open or not) and on our work schedule. Anyway we can accord and she can have anought free time to visit our beautiful country.
As help has a lot to do with children we need a balanced, serious and no-smoker girl who likes be present in our family life and who really likes children; of course no no alcohol, no smoking, no drugs
