  • Description


    Dear Workawayer,

    we are an Italian family of 4 people. Myself, Davide and two little girls of 8 Daria May, and 6 years old Mirea. I am working as a math and scienze teacher and I am a former researcher in Ecology and Environmental Science and Davide works for an Italian Oil Company where he takes care of Environmental Impact and Safety.
    We are 39 and 42 years old, we are a dynamic and sporty family. I lived in Germany for 4 years before moving back to Italy in 2013. We used to travel a lot around Europe and the kids didn't stop us from flying around and visiting places.

    We lived in Nicosia, Cyprus, from July 2017 to July 2019 and we had the chance to host many workawayers and au pairs. We moved again due to Davide's job to Abidjan, Ivory Coast but only for 8 months, the Covid situation forced us back home. We are now back t the North of Italy, where we used to live before our travels begun in 2017. Both the girls go to school, circa till 4 pm.

    We both love to speak English and want for our girls to grow in a bilingual environment. They did learn English and French during our staying abroad and we would like to keep the language alive! Moreover, if you are interested in learning Italian we can do some tandem experience!

    We are looking for somebody to come and live with us from September on to help with managing the house and the girls activities. We have a flat in the center of the town, Lodi, and not far (15 mins walking) from the train station. A train takes only 25 mins to reach Milan central station.

    If you interested, please drop us a message!

    We need somebody to help us with the children (getting them ready for school in the morning, picking them up in the afternoon and spend the afternoon with them) and to talk to them in English in order to improve their language skills (and ours too!!). We are looking for an English speaker or French speaker girl or guy, highly motiveted, positive thinker, who loves to make new activities and games with the children. Sincerely in love with them, full of initiative and patient. Looking forward to interesting and interested new people!

    We are flexible to any request and we can work together out a weekly schedule for the family. Our guests are treated as part of the family!

    It would be wonderful to find somebody starting in September with us until Christmas to help with the Children! In the meanwhile any short staying is also welcome!
