  • Description


    Hi! We're an italian family, we're Melania, 1983, and Antonio, 1977, and 2 daughters - Febe,2014, and Lilith, 2018, we live in a small, interesting town in middle-center Italy, Faenza. At the moment i'm a part time worker and university student (Maths), I play piano and a bit of double bass; Antonio is a Taiji Quan teacher, and a trekking guide. We aren't married, don't follow religion in general, we haven't done vaccines to our daughters but respect others' choices. In this area you'll find often cultural festivals as ceramics international festival "Argillà", historical re-enactment from medieval age, music and theatre public events, free sport activities, and many courses about organic food and products, ecology, environment protection, and a very special culture on typical food and wine from here. In this region we have many green areas and beautiful nature, hills, woods and paths for easy and medium level hiking. Faenza is 2 hours from Firenze and Ancona, 40 minutes from Bologna and Ravenna (on the seaside), and 20 mins from Forlì. It's a good place to stay if you're looking for relax, sport (several parks and jogging and biking paths), art and free-time courses, but also concerts and pubs. People move comfy by bycicle through the city.

  • Help


    We lead a very active life, we work both and so we need much help with our little girls. We're interested in sport, music, culture, travels and foreign languages and would love to meet someone who could help us in normal family life works, especially with children. We want you to keep an appropriate language while staying with our children, please :-) So we need mainly baby sitting, and ordinary skills for daughters needs (personal hygiene, feeding, taking them to school and gym, going to bed..) in shifts we will decide together. Sometimes others house works: doing the dishes, sometimes using washing machine, sometimes cleaning the floor.

If they have a bycicle, they can leave it in our private courtyard. We live in the city center and have all comforts close to home. We provide meals. Warning: washing machine is located into workers' room, so we actually need to enter in their space to use It, but we'll arrange the right moments together.
