  • Description


    We are a 3 members family living in a small town in south Italy, near the sea. We have a daughter, she is 12 and we are looking for somebody to share time with her, look after her at the beach in the afternoon or practice sport outdoor, and help a little bit around the house (cooking, load the dishwasher, prepare the bags for the beach). We are Glad to make this experience cause we enjoyed a lot the past summer with an English tutor that was staying here for a course. We like to share good times and we wish our daughter to improve English language or Spanish. We prefer non Italian speakers for this reason! We have a friendly and calm dog and 2 cats. We can offer nice time in a small typical Italian community, discovering our tradition and feeling the welcoming behaviors of the Jonian area. Here in your free days there are many place to visit and of course there is the chance to meet people cause there are a lot of tourist in August and September.

    It s a good chance to enjoy the summer in the warm Mediterran Sea and enjoy Italian food, discovering recipes! We live in a town which is by the sea, pretty busy during the summer and near some special renowned places like Polignano a mare and Alberobello. For sure there will be the chance to visit different places with us and in your free days is possible to reach places by train!

    We are looking for a girl that should spend sometime with our daughter, like an elder sister, stay with her on the beach or just do something with her like bake, practice English or Spanish to help her improve those 2 languages, and sometime will be asked to cook something or help me to go to the supermarket. Mainly the figure that we wish to fit in our family is an elder sister, ready to share moments with us and helping a little in the daily routine becoming a real part of the family. We are starting with one month staying with the chance to make it longer if both parts are going on well.

  • Accommodation


    We are living on a ground floor villa, so very comfortable accommodation in a very quiet neighborhood. We offer a single room with air condition (its in the corridor, so the split refresh both our room and the guest room). There is TV as well, with Netflix for free time.Of course WI fi connection 24 hours a day. We normally have breakfast and a full dinner, sometimes barbecue in the garden with friends which is a nice time to share and a good chance to know better the local traditions. For lunch we usually have a snack or a sandwiches or salad, , but we wish to taste something prepared from you cause I am working in the morning and I have so mall time for cooking. WE adore ethnic food). We look forward to hear from you soon
