We are an italian couple of 35 and 36 years old. We have a daughter, Sofia, of 9 years old and two twins, Filippo and Alessandro, of 6 years old.
We are looking for someone who would like to spend with us the months of June, July, August and September 2021. We live in a big country house in Correggio, a little historical town located in northern Italy, near Reggio Emilia and Modena.
Right in the middle of Pianura Padana, we are close to both the mountains, offering great skiing resorts in winter or wonderful hikes in summer, and the seaside with sandy long beaches. The beautiful cities of Bologna, Verona and Mantova, are less than an hour drive.
We offer a fully furnished and independent apartment on the top floor of our house. Only the main entrance and staircase is shared with my parents, living in the middle floor. We are lucky to have several animals, including 2 dogs, 5 cats, 2 donkeys and 2 horses. We would be very happy to organize horse riding and other activities, if desired. We also have a vegetable garden where we grow tomatoes, salad and several other vegetables and herbs. We offer home made meals as well as the possibility to cook your own food, if preferred, using our local ingredients. In return, we would require you to look after the children during the day. The possibility of taking free weekdays and weekends is guaranteed, as far as planned in advance. We also include the possibly of going on vacation together.
