    Hi, we are family of four, our two girls are 14 and 7. We like food and cooking, nature and the outdoors (even if we are often indoors), cinema, cycling, motorcycling, among other things. We are simply looking for native English speakers from the United States of America who would like to experience something genuine in Italy, and in exchange can help us in the house ( help keep the house clean then)and give our children the chance to practice English,

    We offer the possibility for workawayers to experience the real Italy, residing in a small town with all main services (but train is 7km) at the foot of the Alps within reach of the big city (Milan, 60kms/40mi). Apart from nearby cities (Bergamo, Milan) we are in the area of Lemine, an ex-Royal court with a number of artistic jewels, as well as being within short distance a the lake (Lake Como) and to the mountains for hiking, climbing and skiing.

    Nearby there are many cultural, natural and sports possibilities.
    Cultural possibilities include art and architecture (medieval borghi, churches, frescoes, museums, cheesemakers, wine producers/wholesalers, UNESCO cities).
    Natural possibilities include mountains, woods and lakes.
    Sports activities include walking, hiking, climbing, cycling (including famous cycling track nearby), lake activities (swimming, kayaking, kitesurfing), paragliding, gliding, golf (course literally next door).
    Public transport includes a regular bus (bus stop is 50metres away) to both the train station (direct links to Bergamo, Lecco and Milan) and the city (Bergamo). It runs 7 days a week until about 7pm. Having a car certainly helps.
    Depending on availability, we can occasionally help you reach certain places.
    Please, No smokers.
