Marco and I are a young couple who live in Nardò, a small town with a population of 30.000 in Puglia Region, south of Italy. Nardò is very close to the seaside, and every day here we have sunshine and a blue sky. We live in a lovely house with a garden in the historic center of the town. We live with Zenzero, our funny cat. Our baby girl is 4 years old and we would like to host an au pair to stay with her when we work. We both work but Elisa will soon start to work part- time.
We believe this would also help to get our daughter used to social relationship and obviously get a bit of the help for our baby.
Marco is a graphic designer and I am a veterinarian. Our main hobby is to play music and we do it everyday: Marco plays the trumpet and I play the accordion. We also like walking to the sea, going to the cinema and having a good glass of wine and dinner with our friends. In addition to Italian, we speak Spanish and English. We live in a lovely place, a historic town close to a great natural park on the coast, with beautiful beaches and little bays. You could go by bike for very nice excursions. Anyway, by foot with in minutes you can easily reach all the main offices, shops, library and the Italian language school for the italian language, if you want to. The city of Lecce is 20 km away from our place where you can find the University, and anything you may need. You can go everywhere by bus and train and sometimes you could also borrow our car.
Babysitting and creative play

In your free time, you can enjoy the gorgeous beaches here, take walks and borrow a bike for bike rides-- the landscape here is flat, so it is perfect for a bike ride. You can reach the beach by bicycle within about a half hour by riding through the beautiful countryside here. Our town is surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, so it is always a pleasure to take a ride. You can also visit many other fun towns nearby. Our region has many different towns located within a close proximity to one another, so it is quite easy to explore. In the summer, there are many different town festivals in every town, so there is always something fun to do-- live music in the piazzas, etc...
