  • Help


    Our main goal is to have an Italian person in our home to practise italian and get to know the person and his/her culture at the same time we provide knowledge about our culture.
    Also general house chores, cleaning and laundry, walking the dog and if the workaway is interested to cook sometimes, that would be nice. :)
