    Good Host
  • Description


    Spring arrived in Tuscany 🌷🌼

    We are an active energetic bilingual family. I'm looking for help in and around the house & with the kids.

    Ideal would be a funny patient person (i would prefer a female) with experience in child care, gardening, ... bit of everything. if you are flexible that would be perfect :)
    We live simple, no luxury lifestyle. Farmlife!
    We are not rich, no spreading food.

    we try to eat healthy, we are not vegetarian or vegan but we don't eat meat every day.

    If you are an energetic early bird with common sense who knows how to run an numerous household without I've to explain too much and you can see what needs to be done you are welcome at our place and we'll have a good time together, I'm willing to show you around when possible but don't forget, we live here and we are not on holiday :)

    At home i speak German with the Kids, i'm originally Austrian.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    we live next to a small village (2km outside the village called Braccagni). Next town is Grosseto which you can reach by bus or train. you are welcome to join us on activities. by train you can reach easily Rome, Florenz, Pisa, Siena, Follonica (which is a town on the coast). Tuscany is a beautiful place to explore and has stunning landscape.
    I can lend you a bicycle.

  • Help


    Housework, childcare (help with homework) and a bit of gardening would be ideal.
    We live on a farm, there is always lots to do
    we can make a weekly plan, it helps both of us.
    two days off per week (usually Saturday and Sunday)
    Sharing meals, preparation and dishwashing is considered to be part of daily life together, apart if one is in charge for some full activity.

    For sure you will have enough time to be a "full tourist" :)
