  • Description


    Hello, my name is Luigina
    Me ( 41 y.o.) and Fabio (45 y.o.) are the parents of twins, 9 y.o. and a baby, 4 y.o.
    I'm a social worker (I work with migrant woman and children) and Fabio is a wine-journalist. We love country-life, natural food, good wine, walking in nature, meet and learn other culture. Our children are noisy but loving :)

    We live in a small country village 15 Km far from Lucca city centre, we haven't tv and video games, the children play in the street, the life here is very quite. Our village is well known as a such beautiful place among the Lucca Hills, between Lucca e Collodi: if you like the life in place where you can hear birds singing and sound of children, long walk in the woods and vineyard, this is your place. So could be boring for someone doesn’ t like the quite life... ;)
    There is a bus stop (the running isn't frequent), but I have a car and i can bring you at the first one if I can.

    We need some help for the house and the garden. We are looking for a woman workawayer.

    We need your help for housekeeping, cooking, gardening and for children. My english (Luigina) is not good but i’d like learning better talking with you. If it's possible i’d like you speak italian with the children, but if is not, no problem!
    We don't smoke so we'd like a no smoking volunteer.
