We have recently moved to a new house in a village nearby Bergamo. I (Anna) am a doctor, Francesco a Mechanical designer. We live with our 2 years old daughter Emma and our dog Jaspers.
We work during all day but we like spending our free time cooking, reading, playing with our little Emma, walking with jaspers, watching movies and staying together.
During the week-end sometimes we are busy with a volunteers association, spending time with people with mental illness
(sorry for my English, it's not so good but I'm learning :)
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
We are a little happy family very open to the world, we can cook some Italian dishes together or you can teach US to cook some of your specialities, we can go with you exploring some not so touristic place in Bergamo and surroundings.
We need someone who can help us in the house. We want to do a periodical "big cleaning" but we never have time.
So, we could ask for cleaning glasses, floors, and others many things need in a house periodically.
We ask also an help with our dog and with everyday cooking or meal prep.
We have a big garden, you can help us cutting lawn, gardening ecc.
You can organize yourself (morning or afternoon) in the time we'll be not at home. Everyday we discuss together the planning for the next day.
We have two private room, each with a big double bed.
The bathroom is shared with us (we have 2).
During your stay you are our guest; our idea of workaway it's not only like an help with the house but also a cultural exchange and a way to meet new people, so we'd like have some dinner together, if it's possible.
During the day you can use the kitchen and help yourself.
Bolgare is a little village.
If you have a car, no problem, you can easily reach Bergamo (15 minutes), Brescia, Milano, Verona, Mantova, the lakes (Garda, Iseo, Endine, Como), and the mountains.
If you don't have a car there are buses that connect you to Bergamo or there is a train station in a close village. From Bergamo you can go everywhere. We can lend you our two bikes.
Bergamo is a very cute little town. You can explore Città Alta and the lakes around (Garda, Iseo, Como). 50 minutes by train from Milano and Brescia. Very close to Milano Bergamo airport.
