  • Description


    My husband works now abroad (he comes home 2 weekend a month), I am actually at home. We need help with our three children. The kids (two girls and a boy) speak a good English, and would like to have a big sister or a big brother.
    They are 7, 10 and 12 yo. and they speak English and Italian.
    The little boy has diabetes, but you don't need to know about that, I take care of him and his insuline pump.
    An help to tidy up is really appreciated, someone who likes cooking too!
    We also have two cats and an Australian Shepherd puppy. We love animals!!!
    We always use a one week trial period (which normally goes fine), also when we make appointments longer than this.

    We have a severely chronically ill family member. This makes that our family is very busy, so you must be able to work and live independently.

    You must to be able to be happy on your own. If you mention the word "pesto" in your message to us, we know you have seriously read the profile.

    We ask for no smoking, no alcohol and no drugs please.

  • Accommodation


    We can only offer you to sleep in the living room, or in a bedroom with the girls because the house has only 2 bedrooms. Your privacy is obviously considerate important like ours. We moved from Marassi to the city center so the house is smaller but in the right place to do everything.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Genoa is known to have Europe’s biggest historical centre. This is the heart of the old city. It’s made up of an incredible amount of tiny streets and alleys called Caruggi. Walking through it will plump you right back in ancient times when Genoa was the most important harbour of the Mediterranean sea. The city is generally safe, but caution is to be applied, especially at night time and in the more quiet zones toward Piazza Principe and the old harbour.
