  • Description


    Hi! We are an italian family of seven: Virginie (50), Massimo (49), Tommaso (20), Alice (18), Asia (16), Mattia (14) and Sofia (11).
    We have lived seven years in Brazil (where we have already welcomed many volunteers) and have returned six years ago in Europe. We have traveled and lived one year in a camper and now we stopped for a period in Sillé le Guillaume (30 km from Le Mans and 240 from Paris).
    Our children are unschooled, they are fluent in Italian, Portuguese and French.
    We are looking for volunteers who want to spend some time with us and who have something to teach our children, it can be anything ... art, music, sports, theater, languages, everything can be interesting for an unschooler!
    In this moment, we also need help in the gardens!
