    Description

    Hi!
    I am Raffaele. I am a widower father. I've got two children (two boys) of 8 and 10, and we'd be glad to have a girl to spend some time with us, helping me out looking after the kids (doing day time activities) and with some house work.
    Basic Italian is required.

    We live in Livorno. In August (generally 1-20) we move to Calabria to spend our holiday on the Sila plateau, in a tiny village 1500 m above sea level.

    The kids are old enough, and there is no necessity of a strict control. However, I look for a girl who can interact with them, better if teaching them English. This person will help me in keeping the house in order.
    This work takes 3 hours a day - more or less.

    In the free time the worker can spend her time with our family and the other families living in the village, speaking and learning Italian (my Italian is very good), learning Italian cuisine and gastronomy (I am an expert unprofessional cook), going for long walkings in the nature, cycling, reading, picking raspberries and strawberries, listening to the music, etc.

    I can offer a single bedroom with shared bathroom and free meals in my holiday house in the mountains. The area is the beautiful region of Calabria, South West of Italy.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We'll spend 3 weeks on the Sila plateau. Nature is magnificent, the tiny village where we'll live is frequented by interesting people, and our main occupations are playing soccer or tennis, picking raspberries, strawberries and mushrooms, cooking & eating, talking, walking several km a day, preparing fruit jam and herbs liquors, reading, listening to music, looking at the stars at night. You know, it isn't the most exciting life you can imagine, but if you want to know italian customs and food, and learn Italian, this can be very useful.
