  • Description


    We are a happy Italian family of 5, currently living in the Milan area but we are planning on moving to Paris area at the end of August.
    Andrea is 42 and works for an insurance company based in Paris. Marta, 36, is currently a lawyer working in a mid-size company, however she will take a long term-leave to organize the family's relocation in France and also attend a university post graduation course to teach Italian to foreigners.
    We love spending time together as a family, traveling or inviting friends and meeting new people!
    Edoardo (7) attends first year of primary school. Matteo (nearly 6) the last year of kindergarten. Both play judo, like Lego and constructions in general. Sveva (2) goes to a nursery, plays with her kitchen toy and her doll, as well as with her brothers’ superheros. The boys in September will attend the British school of Paris and Sveva will attend a French nursery.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are an Italian family that will live in France and our children will attend a British School (where there will be children of 52 different nationalities)... our workawayers will be naturally exposed to so many different cultures!!
    We do enjoy having people around and meet people from all over the world!
    We assure that you will definitely have a lot of fun with us and we will make our best to welcome you and make you feel part of the family!
    Marta loves cooking and will be very pleased to teach typical italian recipes! We also love trying new food and learn other countries dishes!

  • Help


    We are looking for a workawayer (preferably girl/woman) that would join us in this new adventure in France as part of the family.
    We would ask for a help a few hours a day (generally weekdays) with some houseworks or babysitting.
    We are pretty flexible on the working hours and really interested in the cultural exchange!
    We would prefer a person fluent in English to expose the children as much as possible to that language in order to ease the transition to an English school (and ease the communication with parents).

    Languages spoken

    Italian, English, Spanish, basic French

  • Accommodation


    We will offer a private bedroom with a small private toilet and sink. The main bathroom will be shared probably just with the little girl.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We will live in a nice wooden house with a small garden in Chatou. It's a nice and green neighborhood, close to the schools the children will attend but well connected to Paris downtown with public transports (RER is 10 minutes walking and it takes 20 minutes to get to the city centre).
    Our workawayers will have a lot of free time to enjoy the city, attend courses, to travel or do other activities they like!
    Of course they will be more than welcome to join us during their free time as we would consider them as part of the family!
