We are a family with four kids, 15, 13, 7 and 3 years old. Mum is a home midwife and dad is a carpenter. Help us with childcare, housekeeping, gardening and nature works in our beautiful house in Tuscany
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
They will live in a very peaceful and happy place meeting many nice people with different talents. They will learn italian but also talk many other languages if they like. They will live in contact with the nature and learn its rythm. they will often be surrounded by many children of different ages :) and if they like they will share with us our experience and knowledge of midwife and carpenter. We live simply and close to nature but we enjoy life a lot. In the village where we live there are many other families living "close to nature" like us and so we became a small community doing many activities together although each of the family has its own house. There are often music, celebration and friends in and around the house.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are family with four kids living in a beautiful house in Tuscany. We need help in babysitting the children, sometimes also at night time because we ( the parents) are sometimes going out for work also at night. We need help with their homework from school sometimes and to take them to their afternoon activities, that's why we prefer people with driving license. We need basic help in housekeeping, with the vegetables garden that we are growing and with some other works in the garden and in the nature that sorrounded us.
We offer a small private bedroom for the workawayer but she/ he can freely use all the house. There are two toilettes in the house that we all share. We usually eat breakfast and than cook twice a day and we like very much to share the meal with our guests. Anyway, if the workawayer prefers to eat alone, she/he is of course free to do it!
In the time off, the workawayers can enjoy the nature around and have nice walks. They can often meet a lot of interesting people that are coming and going visiting us. They can reach the most famous destinations around ( Firenze, Pisa, Siena, Lucca) by bus+train. They can join the activities that are organised by the cultural association "naturalmentecrescendo" sitting 500 meters from our house. They can invent new ways to spend their time :)
