    Description

    We are looking for a reliable wa (sorry, only ladies at the moment!) who wants to join our family and our children above all, possibly ENGLISH MOTHER-TONGUE PERSON (long stay most welcome).

    We, dad Daniele, Mom Anna, two boys 11 and 9 and a girl 7, live near Como (15 min by car), in a comfortable house with garden, vegetable garden and swimming pool. We live near the wood and stables.

    We are looking for a kind, organised, adaptable wa. We would like our wa to have experience with young children.

    We appreciate if you could play an instrument or engage them in lively activities (yoga, judo, soccer, pilates, dance, COOKING or anything you can do.

    We are a quite active family. We like to spend time outside and with friends. We cycle, spend time in the backyard, swimm, we try to enjoy our spare time, eat healthy food.

    We do love hiking in the mountains, fitness, working in the garden. My husband is definitely a car man! I have a huge passion for foreign languages and cultures. I love photography!

    Our hobbies are different: learning new languages, getting to know new culture, travelling as much as we can, host friends, cooking, sport, swimming and hiking (summer), skiing and snowboarding (winter).

    Our children are proactive, full of energy, curious and lovely, they play the piano and the drums. They also go bicycle, push scooter and tractors with pedals.
    All kind of sport and music instrument are more than welcome. They love dinos, animals, Lego constructions, drawing, play hide-and-seek,soccer, working in the garden, staring bugs, photography.
    In summer they love to swimm and in winter we love skiing.

    Every single day is a fresh start!

    Live in a family with kids means to laugh every day, be more active and patient than you can imagine, be the hero in many situations (also for us as parents), notice the little things, have new siblings and friends...

    Children find true happiness while playing with our wa and they love making new ones.

    We already hosted 7 au pairs and 3 wa in the past and we would like to get to know other fantastic people.

    Accommodation

    Bedroom with bed, wardrobe, desk with chair and your bathroom. We provide an Italian mobile SIM card (if you need it), free internet access at home as well as Netflix and a bicycle. We offer board as well.

    We would like our wa to have supper with us since we love to share experiences and learn from each other.

    It wouldn’t be a problem if you are vegetarian but not so easy if you are vegan, cause we provide our children a variegated diet. Many products come from our grandparents’ farm, like rise, chicken, eggs...

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in a village near Como (15 min by car), a small town 45 Km from Milano and 30 km from Lugano (Switzerland).

    We live in a comfortable house with garden and pool. We live near the wood and several stables where you can go horseback riding.

    In our village there's a Kneipp path with cold baths where feet and ankles are pleasantly massaged by walking in the water and on the stones. This therapy has a wonderful beneficial effect on blood circulation.

    You can also find many routes for cycling and mountain biking.

    Close to our home there’s the bus station and all you need (1 km) like supermarkets, shopping center, green areas, shops, library, church and gym.

    You could visit Como and its beautiful lake, Milano and many other cities in our region.

    Switzerland isn't far away, only 15 min to Chiasso and from there 40 min to Lugano by train.
