    Description

    We have recently moved to a new house in a village nearby Bergamo. I (Anna) am a doctor, Francesco is a Mechanical designer. We live with our 2 years old son Elia, our daughter Emma (she is six) and our dog Jaspers.
    We work during all day but we like spending our free time cooking, reading, playing music, playing with our children, walking with jaspers, watching movies and simply staying together. Usually we like to have dinner with workawayers, the idea is to share experiences while setting the table and preparing the meal... as a family!
    During the week-end sometimes we are busy with a volunteers association, spending time with people with mental illness, some other times we like to go out with our guests for some touristic tour.

    Help

    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.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    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.
