    Description

    We're a family with 2 daughters, the first is 9 and the little one is 2 and a half!
    Sorry: Coronavirus lockdowns kept us away from the Workaway website right after the amazing experience we had with two lovely guys and we have left our profile on its own. But we are happy to begin again!

    We live at 800 meters on sea level in a beautiful natural landscape, surrounded by woods and streams.
    Perfect for silence and mountain lovers, and also few km far from two of the main Valsugana's lakes of Levico and Caldonazzo (reachable by car).
    In autumn/winter time we're close to the amazing Levico Christmas little market.
    We've many passions and interests to share.
    Laura is a graffiti writer since 1995 even if she is not painting in the last year. She is passionate with goddess and dolomites' mythology, she loves mountains and woods. She works as an educator for Italian justice department. She does love to walk in the mountain and can suggest many excursions to do.
    Mattia works in a supermarket and is a cinema projectionist too. He is in love with Africa and books. Both love music and there're many percussions and a guitar available to have fun together! :)
    PS: half of the family is vegetarian.
    Smoke allowed OUTSIDE!

    IMPORTANT: See below for public transport and stuff... We live in a "not that much but a bit" isolate place!
    Better if you have a driving licence :)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here's a little paradise for nature's lovers.
    Laura is very happy to share her knowledge about graffiti writing, lettering, about legends and mythology, Mattia loves cinema and movies. Little Morgana loves Miyazaki movies!
    We can drum together if you like.
    Very happy to lead you up in the Lagorai mountain, to go ice skate (Laura was a skater), to share Italian vegetarian (or not) food (Mattia cooks meat).
    For those who want to practice italian, we litterally have a library at home. Yes, some book in english too (a couple in french) but not that much. But we have hundreds in italian, about different subjects!

  • Help

    Help

    We so need a help with the children, we live far from our families. And help with the house in every season.
    It is important our guest will know about children care!
    The rest of the work to do depends on the season.
    We have a small garden and cultivate ourselves some vegetables.
    We've a lovely walnut tree. -> more to do in autumn time: pick walnuts up and clean them etc..
    Laura she is writing a book and trying to see if she can change her job. It means she is working double. The little one is too little to go to school and the older girl is a soccer player. It is so hard to try to make everything fit!
    We live in a small single house and there's always something to do.
    We are considering to build a little hut in the garden, where Laura can sleep and the girls can play ;) But before to do it, there is a lot to do in the garden: to move an old woodshed, building a toolshed.
    In all of these we will be very happy to practice English and rise our daughters in a international mentality.
    Let's build a better world!

    Accommodation

    There's a private single bed, small, but lovely room available, with an amazing view. It is really small, but also cute. See pictures.
    A double sofa bed in the living room, for those who don't mind to have less privacy. But I would suggest the small room: it is Laura's favourite in the house!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Please note: first bus stop is about 5/6 minutes by foot. We're in the mountain, no high frequency busses. We have 4 a day and only one in the morning. You must not fear to stay a bit isolated.
    Train station at 10 minutes by car, the trains link to main cities (Trento for example, it is amazing!) and in some time are 2 every hour. 2hours by train and you are in Venice, where Laura's family lives!
    We can drive you to the train station but only if we're home and not working.
    Laura works in Trento 4 days a week, she can drive you there.
    Definitly is not a place for those who seek noise and confusion but perfect if you need some time with yourself, if you love nature and wild animals (we see them almost every day!) or if you love mountain sports. Our mountains, called "Lagorai chain", is the last wilderness area in Trentino.
    Our mountain is populated by many interesting people and sometimes we have parties together.
    We have an electric mountain bike and it is exciting to use!

    Laura is trying to build up her online job too. But the only thing is here in the mountain the max connection runs 100 MB download and maybe 20 upload, not that fast. Also, the person who is coming must have his/her personal laptop, as the one we own is used a lot by Laura!

    We love pets. Just, unluckily Laura became allergic to cats. But children friendly dogs are always welcome.
