  • Description

    Description

    We are an easy going family.
    Danilo (52, independent software developer), Alessandra (52, psychotherapist), Nicolò (20) and Cecilia (17).
    Nicolò is attending (Engineering) at the Unversity of Bologna. Good-mannered with everybody (except with his sister ;-) with a passion for the world of film-making. Usually really busy as a volunteer in a Scout group and in the local Red Cross Committee.
    Cecilia is tender and a more dynamic person, she likes to go to the beach in summer to play beach volley with her friends, watch anime and express herself in making "Artistic things". Actually she attends singing lessons (she is reallly fond of k-pop music).

    She is going to study in Norway in 2022, for 6 month.
    That's why should be very interesting for her to start in advance to learn the language.

    We have also a beautiful siberian cat (Asij).
    We like to meet other people, so we have often some guests at home, and we had experience foreigner guests.
    We are respectful of other's privacy but we also like to share experience.
    If you like we can help you in learning Italian.

    We live in Rimini because it is a not-so-small, not-so-big, friendly city, nice in winter and with a lot of surprising things to do in summer!

    We are founder of the local GAS (ethical purchasing groups) and also proud members of WWF and Greenpeace.

    They could learn to live in an Italian-Style family. A cheerful atmosphere and he/she will discover parts of the tipical italian background. Specially in spring we do one-day trip into nature or cities around.

    Help

    We are searching for a mother-tongue Norvegian for an informal way of teaching this language to our teenager daughter.
    English can be used as a bridge-language to understand each other (i.e. we often watch English-spoken movies.) Everything can be a good excuse for taking the opportunity to interact: during meals, playing at the beach, cooking, handcrafting or watching movies.
    So we need a chatty and cheerful kind of person.
    To complete our request, we expect some collaboration in the normal housekeeping activities.
    If you like, you can also contribute with your inspiration to the "restyling" of parts of our house... we have some "work in progress" that are awaiting to be completed...

    We can make a weekly schedule of our's and your's needs so that you can organize better your spare time.

    Accommodation

    We will make available to you a single room in our flat, that you have to take care of.
    We have a preference for an organic and vegetarian diet, but we are not strict and sometimes we can also have fish or meat.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in the center of Rimini, in a small building (second and last floor, no elevator), bright and well ventilated. It is composed by three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, the kitchen, one big loft with another bedroom, another small bathroom and four balconies with plants.

    If you like to play music or sing, you can find here a piano, an electronic sinthetizer, an acoustic guitar and even an accordion.

    We have an extra bike that can be used freely to go around Rimini.
    (Bicycles are the most convenient means of transportation here during summer.)

    What to do in Rimini during your free time ? Lots of things!
    Our house is really near to downtown, few minutes walking away from Ponte di Tiberio (an old roman bridge), Arco d'Augusto (a roman triumph arch) and other really nice places.
    We have some ice cream shops just near our house. We simply LOVE them. Three of them are absolutely amazing, you HAVE TO TRY them all!

    The beach can be easily reached by bike in 15 min. (which is the largest in Italy and it is very well equipped for outdoor beach sports)

    Do you like jogging ? The biggest Rimini's park is just 300 meters behind our house.
    The hills of the surroundings are very close to the town, smooth and very suitable for bikers. You can find lots of typical restaurants, often located in enchanting villages.

    In Rimini and in the surroundings, there's plenty of amusement parks: Aquatic parks (Aquafan), Aquaria (Parco Le Navi), Theme parks (Mirabilandia, Fiabilandia and Italia in Miniatura) even an edutainment park with dolphins (Oltremare).

    With public transportation you can reach San Marino, Verucchio, Santarcangelo.
    A bit further you can find other nice medioeval small villages like San Leo or the Castle of Gradara

    Rimini is in the very center of Italy. Well connected by train with the most actractive art heritage cities in Italy:
    Ravenna, the capital city of the Western Roman Empire (40 min.)
    Bologna, renowned for its culinary tradition (60 min.), but for good cooking you don't need to go so far! Romagna, our region, is renowned for really good food and good wine.
