    Every single day is a fresh start!

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

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

    We already hosted 6 au pairs and 3 wa in the past and we would like to get to know other fantastic people.

  • 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 with 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.
