    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in the beautiful Genova by the sea on the Northwestern coastline of Italy.
    We have a beautiful sea promenade, where you can walk or jog. The main train station is 10 minutes by bus and from there you can reach any other place: either explore our beautiful region (have you ever heard of Portofino or the five lands? They are close to where we live) or visit other cities (Milano takes less than two hours, Rome takes a little longer than four hours, Torino is less than two hours, Bologna takes about two hours, The French Riviera is a couple of hours away…just to say, we are in a very convenient location!

    There are nice restaurants, pizzerias and cafes just a few meters away from our place. Gym, swimming pool and tennis courts are 5 minutes walk from our place. At the same time, you just need a 10-minute bus ride to go to the downtown area where you can find museums, cathedrals, historic alleys, the port area, cinemas, etc.

    Our home will be your home. We'll be happy to have you as part of our family and we are happy if you want to spend time with us. At the same time though we totally understand if you want to be by yourself when you are off. It's really up to you!

    You will have your own room and your beautiful bathroom.

  • Help


    We are looking for some help with our 2 kids (Francesca, 7 and Edoardo 4). Our kids are our precious treasure ;-) Therefore, we look for someone very responsible and happy to interact with them. We both work and your help is so important. You will help us with usual things that have to do with the kids: get them ready in the morning, take them to kindergarten/school, pick them up, have fun with them, have dinner and put them to be at 8.30/8.45.

    Language is important to us and we ask for someone who will be speaking a good English to the kids.

    They both speak English!
