We are a family of 3, dad Leonardo is 45, mum Valentina is 47 and Federico who is 8 years old.
Dad works as a mechanic and mum is a police-woman. Federico is a very joyful boy, he loves open air games and good company.
But we are not only humans...There are many animals in our family!
We have with us 5 dogs, 6 cats and a beautiful pig...our family has many many legs! Of course you need to love animals as much as children to stay with us...
We live in the countyside, in a big indipendent home 8 km from the seaside of Genova Pegli.
For the summertime, you should be able to swim because Federico loves going to the beach!
We prefere Federico to play outside and/or with games useful for his fantasy such as Lego instead of laying on the sofa whatching TV. Anyway, we'd like someone playing WITH him and not just watching him playing by himself.
Federico can speak English pretty well. I hope our host will help him to improve his language practice.

If you love animals and nature, good food and simple life, maybe we are the right Host Family for you! We really believe in hosting as a cultural exchange.
And if you've never seen Genova and Liguria you really should!
We'd like our hosted friend to be a part of our family in everyday's life. We need him/her to take care of Federico and having fun with him during our job hours. Weekends are usually free.
You will have a very big bedroom with double bed and your own bathroom and living room. We share laundry and garden. We offer a public transport subscription, a sim card and internet.
We offer breakfast, lunch and dinner: mum Valentina cooks pretty well, you'll see! :)
The bus stop is 5 minutes walking from home, the train station 15 minutes by bus. You can easily reach the center of the town even if we are in the best green countryside!
Genoa is a historic port city in the North of Italy and is the birth place of renowned explorer Christopher Colombus. You can also travel to other famous tourist destinations in Italy such as Portofino and the Cinque Terre. Or reach many interesting destinations such as Firenze, Milano, Venezia, Pisa, Montecarlo in one day or two days trips.
