  • Description


    Hi! We are a family of four who loves travelling, but travelling is not always possible. So why not to host people from all over the world?

    We are Eva and Francesco, parents of Teo and Oona (5+ and 1+). We are raising our children as bilingual, speaking Italian and English. That's why we would like to host a person who can help with the kids few hours per day, in English. It's not important to be a mother tongue, but a good English level is preferred.
    During summer we move in to a kind of villa with garden and a spare room, with a private bathroom (except for the shower, used sometimes by the kids, although there is another one upstairs). Room, kitchen and bathroom are on the ground floor; we live on the first floor, but we spend much time in the patio with the open air kitchen on the ground floor.
    The house is 1 km away from the coast of Marina di Ragusa and its beaches. If the workaway has no car, we can mostly drive him/her/etc. to the village. From Marina there are also busses to Ragusa and Catania. Marina, during summer is a busy and touristic place, but there are also free beaches and night life.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We love food, either Sicilian, Italian or international. We would love to have a real cultural exchange and of course food is always involved.
    Eva is an Italian teacher for foreigners, if you are interested in the language.

  • Help


    So we are looking for someone to help with kids in English, and some help at home (keeping the kitchen clean ) like 3/4 hours per day (we will plan together whether in the morning or in the afternoon and during which days), 5 days per week. Sometimes we could go to the beach all together. All in exchange of a room, shared meals, free transportation when is needed.
    Ask for more info if interested.
    Minimum stay should be two weeks, to have some continuity for the kids.
    Better if you enjoy kids company, of course.
