  • Description


    We are Justyna (35) and Andrea (38), a couple of young parents. We have a lovely 2, 5 year old daughter called Lea and 7 moths old Ida. We are looking for part time help with child care. We live in Sicily, in a beautiful farm in the middle of orange grooves, 30 minutes by car from the airport of Catania. There is plenty space around our house, we have 3 dogs and 3 cats, chickens and ducks and a lot of hot sicilian sun. Both of us work in the farm and in the office so we would be very happy to host someone who would like to spend time with us.
