  • Description


    June-september 2021-we need help for gardening and renovation.

    Hello, I'm Serena and i'm married with Gianluca. We are parents of two children: our daughter Agnese who is 16 years scout girl and our son Emiliano who is 8 years old. We also have a little dog, its name is Frida. We recently move to a beautiful typical italian country house with a big garden around it. We leave in a small country named Caluso in the north west part of Italy, near Turin. It's a good base to visit the surrounding places: in one hour you can reach the mountains, in two hours you can reach the sea, in one hour and half you can go to Milan. At the moment i'm working, whit a part-time job and normally i'm busy during the morning, while, my husband is working outside for a lot of time during the week.

    We love food and and make barbecue parties with our friends sharing a glass of good wine in our garden. We have a little swimming pool. We are really open to other cultures and we are also open to teach italian's and we would like to improve our english. Piedmont is a wonderful land with a lot of castles to visit and a lot of different landscapes to appreciate like mountains, hills and lakes (we have one 10 minutes far from here). It is also one of the most important wine area in the world. In detail Caluso is the land of "Erbaluce" one of the best white wine in Italy. In the surrounding it is possible to practice footing, walking, swimming (there are two swimming pools) canoeing,and horse riding
