I’m a working single mum to a 5-year-old and having grown up in a family that hosted people for many years I have some great memories of this experience and would like to share my home and our lifestyle.
I live in the countryside just South of Florence (Chianti area – San Casciano in Val di Pesa) and am looking for someone who has experience with children.
I run a business that offers hot air balloon flights over Tuscany, I’m quite flexible with hours, but I need help with the kid when working. The rest of my family is very close by, my parents produce organic olive oil in additions to the hot air ballooning business; cousins, aunts and uncles produce wine, sheep milk cheeses and more.
We need someone who is down to earth, easy going, enthusiastic, that can easily integrate and become an enriching addition to our little family.
Preferably looking for an English speaking, non-smoking female.
We would like 4-5 hours per day for 4/5 days a week of help and are willing to pay for any extra hours.
I am open to discuss specific requests and needs.
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
We live in the typical tuscan countryside away from bustlying citties, but located in a strategic area close enough to Florence and Siena. Great for day trips away (I have no problem dropping you off or picking you up from the bus station in town). Time slows down here, a perfect spot for relaxing in peace and quiet.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Looking for someone how has experience with children and education in some form, who loves to play, go on walks, bike rides and swimming, reading sotries etc..
I live in a independant house with garden. I have a detached room (20 square metres) used as a spacious guest bedroom which allows for independant space and some extra privacy. The kitchen and bathroom are in the main house, only a few paved metres away through the garden.
We speak both English and Italian in the home, I follow a vegetarian and gluten-free diet whilst the child doesn’t, so we are very flexible and accommodating.
We would love to have some meals all together as that is when sharing stories and bonding truly happens. Food is part of the italian culture and the only rule we have is that "Who cooks doesn't have to do dishes" .
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers

Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 4/5 days a week
