  • Description


    We are a happy Italian family of 5, originally from Milan and have been now living in the Paris area For a year.
    Andrea is 43 and works for an insurance company based in Paris. Marta, 37, is currently a lawyer working in a mid-size company, however she has taken 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 (8) attends year 4 of the BSP, Matteo (7) Y1. Both play tennis and football, like Lego and constructions in general. Edoardo loves reading and playing board games. Matteo is more physical and adventurous. Sveva ( 3) just started nursery at the BSP, plays with her dolls and kitchen toy, as well as with her brother’s toys. We’ve been having au pairs around for the last year, and the children are very comfortable with it!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are an Italian family that live in France and our children attend a British School (where there are children of 30 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 house chores or babysitting, and, seasonally maybe some gardening (we have a quite small garden, nothing too demanding!)
    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).

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in a nice house with a small garden in Chatou. It's a nice and green neighborhood, close to the schools the children 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!
