    Turin is a nice spot to spend some time and the house is nice and in a quiet and natural environment, with very few people and motor vehicles. I can personally share my know how in Italian food (I like and I am quite good in cooking), and I always liked exchanging ideas and information with foreign people. Finally I have a piano and some guitars available for you, if u so wish!

  • Help

    Help

    We always need some help for house cleaning and maintenance and gardening as well, painting, etc. I often have to do some DIY wood working, masonry and other, in a few word lots of things to do! Moreover, whereas possible, I would like my daughter(s) have the occasion to improve her accent with a English mother tongue workawayers, since language can be learnt all life along, but unfortunately not pronunciation...!

    This host offers a language exchange
    My eleder daughter Agata had already the benefit of talking with several english mothertongue workawayers (From UK, US, CAN) since many years and presenty doesn't almost need anymore to improve her accent but still talking can be fruitful for her. The little one, Caterina and Roberta are less skilled and they would be happy to learn and teach basic italian in exchange...

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    the lower TV room with bathroom can be used. Proper italian food obviously included... Even if I absolutely agree on vegetarian and vegan choices i never suceeded in give up with meat. I have no problem in hosting vegetarians and we will do our best to comply with their needs, but I need some elasticity from their side too. I usually reject vegan guests, really sorry about that, it's the right choice but having to nurrish 2 daughters can be complex enough...

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Public transportation is not very close (about 15 min by foot) but walk lovers can here find a very nice spot (the house is in a local natural park) , people from all around come here in weekends to walk or mountain-biking... I can also provide a bicycle, in order to go downtown autonomously...and lift can be found easily by residents moving hereby by car.
