  • Description


    Hello, We are a mixed Italian / Australian family with 2 children aged 7 & 5 (both boys). We live in a small country side hamlet which is home to about 24 residents and my husband has a restaurant here in the town. We are only 25min away from the coast of Cecina and Volterra is 15min by car. I work in Travel and my job can call me out without much notice and Giovanni can often be consumed with the restaurant. For the last 6 years we have hosted 3 women (all returned for a 2nd year) and made some good friendships. We would like to offer someone to come and join our family and experience some local Italian along the way. Ideally we would like a english mother tounge speaker as with so much Italian around us its been a god send to have another english influence on the kids. They both speak english and Italian so communication wouldnt be an issue. We also have a cat and a very friendly dog.
