We are a family of four with 2 children aged 16 and 9. We live in Arcore, near the park and Monza motordrome, and 10 minutes to the train station, 20 minutes from dowtown Milan.
We like hiking, go exploring places, foods and people, get together with friends and also some good wine. As individuals, each one has his own hobbies and sports (soccer, tennis, chess, swimming etc.).
Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
It’s a green area, near the biggest European walled park, and plenty of "villa di delizia" (ancient palaces country). That’s really lucky, living in the widest italian urban area.
Going North you can visit a lot of other villages, lakes and hills then the Alps and/or the Swiss border which is 40 km from here.
So you can enjoy outdoors, the city, art, fashion, history... and Italian food ;)
We are looking for someone speaking and practicing english with the guys (and with us) and supervising them while we are at work. We expect first of all that you are a person with a strong smiling attitude and capacity and enjoyment in dealing with children. Personal qualities we value are honesty and neatness.
