  • Description


    Hello there! Nice meeting you :)
    My name is Valeria and I live with my husband, Johan, and my kids, Arianna (3) and Lorenzo (7), in Uppsala, Sweden. I am Italian, my husband is Swedish, and we have friends from all around the word: We are a friendly, international family!
    Both Johan and I are engineers and we live in a house in the city of Uppsala, famous for its lively student life and full of international students and researchers. Uppsala is the 4th biggest city in Sweden and it is very close to the capital city of Stockholm and its airport. However, Uppsala has the advantage of being a relatively small city, close to nature and bike friendly.

    We would like to host one workawayer that can help us with the kids, for example by picking them up from school, and staying at home with them if they are sick or the school is closed (and my husband and I really need to work). We look for someone that has experience with kids and wants to play and take care of Arianna and Lorenzo!
    We would love to host someone that can take initiative, is tidy, and happy to help around, for example with some cooking if needed. If you are vegetarian, you should definitely help with cooking and teach us!

    We would really appreciate to host someone that can talk to us in Italian or Swedish. Johan and I can talk other languages as well, but the kids feel confortable with the two above.

    We do not except smokers or pets. For a traveler coming from outside EU, we would appreciate her/him to have an health insurance.

    Our ideal workawayer is a girl that speaks Italian, age ~20 to ~26, and can stay with us for more than a month.

  • Accommodation


    You will live in our house built in 2021. You will have your own room (about 10 sqm) with a spacious wardrobe. We have two bathrooms in the house and you could have access to one, where you can store your things. However, it will not be private because we need to access the laundry machine and shower.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live very close to the forest and it is very easy to go out for a ride or a run. We can lend you a bike if you want! We have friendly neighbors and we want you to respect them as well. We have a piano and a guitar if you want to play, but ...no loud music when it is inconvenient :)
    We like to keep the house clean and tidy and we want you to respect that by helping to keep things in order and to clean after yourself.
