  • Description


    JULY 2019 -
    An Italian open minded 52- 59 year old couple living on the Adriatic coast central Italy looks for an English speaking child supervisor for their 10 year old boy. Francesco has a family run shoe making factory. Besides he is a ski teacher and gives occasionally lessons during the week-ends in the Appennini mountains resorts which are about 1 hour away drive. Irina is a teacher in English at the secondary school. Maximo is a full of energy boy, funny and cute, he is becoming an adolescent now, so he has "his strange moments". He plays tennis, swims and skies, loves bike riding, plays ping pong or just with friends in the open air. He has been learning to play the guitar for 3 years now and has quite goods music culture. He is now studying piano playing at school although he's not very fond of it.
    In the summer time we often go to the near by sandy golden beaches which are 10 min. away. The close town Civitanova Marche is a lively center full of bars, restaurants, live music, festivals in the summer time. We often have our dinners on the terrace at home. We spend most weekends in our Appennini mountain holiday flat (an hour away from our main home close to the sea) where we do hiking, cycling or just relaxing.
    We have already hosted an Irish 22 year girl in 2017 for 2 weeks and Englush, American and Danish boys from 2018 till 2021. We had wonderful experiences and still are in contact with them. We travel a lot, we are used to speaking different languages, we have many foreign friends, we are open minded, sporty, easy going people who love good cuisine and friends.

    You must look after our son and speak and play with him in English in the morning while mom is at work. Daddy works full time. In the afternoon I can take You to the beach, go outside for dining in the evening, eat a good Italian ice-cream and take a walk along the sea. We spend some of the week-ends in our Holiday house in the Appennini mountains an hour drive away.
