  • Description


    We are a family with two guys 12 and 16 years old who speak fluent English
    We live in the beautiful Ligurian Riviera between Portofino and Cinque Terre, in a country house with a big garden. We are surrounded by nature and enjoy a pleasant sea view.
    We like cultural exchange and we need someone who enjoys spend time with ours guys and speak English to improve their already good level , and with Alessio also speak Spanish or French Because he attends the linguistic high school and has to improve his level.
    We have been hosting for a few years and we do not want to be considered a bed and breakfast, but a family with whom to share time, culture and traditions, we are looking for a responsible person who is educated and who wants to integrate with our family and therefore want to help us with housework as does each member of the family.(Don't worry, everything is very simple because we don't want to host guys who want to be served 😉)
    The guys who best spent their time with us have returned several times to our great joy, we are also very good at advising and helping to organize beautiful trips in the wonderful places that surround us. Rapallo is only 3 hours by train from Florence ... all the guys we have hosted have spent time in this beautiful city that we love and know how to recommend
    So if you are an educated, polite responsible person and you love spending time with people to get to know them better and to get to know different cultures, if you like Italian cuisine, if you are capable of teach English and have the patience to correct the mistakes we will make by talking to you ..... then you are the right candidate for our family
