    Description

    Hey there!
    We are Ily (6) and Ingrid (53). We are living in a future children's house this summer, a wonderful Italian villa built in 1800. Two bedrooms are still available in July and probably August for solo mums with children.

    I speak German and English, Ily speaks German. But we would both like to learn Italian or English or....

    We expect our helpers to be part of the family which means that we are offering more than just a working place: we invite you to our leisure time activities and so on.

    But this also means that you take part in normal life in the house. We expect people to be able to take on tasks independently and to be able to integrate in family life.

    We do have animals (2 dogs) so if you have any allergies, we cannot host you. We also appreciate if you inform us when contacting us if you have a special diet. We like vegan and vegetarian, but we eat once a week meat!

    From now on and over this summer I need help in the garden and to clean the house (hoover daliy, windows cleaning,etc.) . So, if you like cleaning or gardening you are welcome!

    This summer we are living in the old villa, Casa Serravalle, built around 1800. The long-term project is to create a space for solo mums with their children. Where five to ten solo mums can support each other.

    It's our first summer in this house and we want to explore and get to know the neighbourhood together. The 30 kilometres of sandy beach in the Grado lagoon nature reserve. Discovering our own paths off the beaten tourist track.

    We are interested in volunteers who enjoy being with children and playfully exploring the day: Garden work such as weeding, planting, pruning trees, doing the daily chores, cleaning one of the 30 windows of the house, ...

    The important thing is a willingness to discover!
