Hello! We are a funny family of four people and we live in a small city called Carpi (pop. 60.000) in northern Italy, very close to Modena and Bologna, 2 hours from Milano. We live in our own house in the city centre. Mascia and Nicola are the parents, while Lavinia and Ludovico the children. Lavinia is five years old and Ludovico is eight years old (nine in February 2019).
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We would request you to speak English with us and the children. You can taste our food and we can help you learning how to cook Italian food, also lasagne and tortellini! You can see our different styles of life and different timetables and meet our fantastic kids.
You'll meet Ludovico and Lavinia when they are back from school, around 4.30 pm (apart from when Ludovico doesn't want to have lunch at school and in that case we could manage that you could prepare the lunch and then help him doing homeworks until he goes to soccer, if you are free). Cooking dinner is appreciated but not needed.

The accomodation is the whole second floor, that consists in a big bedroom with private bathroom and nice terrace. The room doesn't have a direct door because it's on the whole last floor of the house (but the bathroom has the door). We have a cleaner who comes on a weekly basis; she will clean also your bedroom and bathroom.
