Help around the house
We live in the ancient Maritime city of Vittoriosa which is positioned on the Grand Harbour, a 7 minute ferry ride from the vibrant capital Valletta and a 10 minute walk to the superyacht marina and the Mediterranean sea where you can swim. We are an English speaking family so your English would improve greatly living with our family. We are surrounded by history living in the first Knights of Malta city on the island. There are many museums in the area plus the largest Fort on the Island where Caravaggio was said to have been imprisoned and escaped! and there is easy access to Valletta which is again is steeped in history.
I am looking for help with childcare and help around the home including some cooking plus walking our friendly dog. If you can drive that would be a great help as the kids have various activities away from the home.
We live in a converted nunnery which I converted some years back, a large 4 bedroom house with a view to the Grand Harbour. You would sleep in the largest room in the house - the sala nobile which is also used as our spare room.
In August we move to our converted farmhouse in Gozo for the month with lovely garden and swimming pool. Here you would have your own room overlooking the courtyard.
Down the road from our house there are restaurants and cafes and shops. There are buses that go to other parts of Malta and there is a ferry which goes regularly to Valletta which takes 7 minutes. There are some great swimming spots in walking distance to the house and lots to explore in the area.
