We have 4 cats (Rosi, Lulù, Tigre, Ninja), one big dog (Akela), 2 tortoise, 20 hens and some small fishes!!!!

    We've had many positive au pair experiences, and we would like to start a new adventure with workawayer.

    We are looking for a girl or boy who is mother tongue is English as we wish for our three children to become completely bi-lingual. Actualy they don't speak good English but we are working to help them in this. We would like you to teach them English by playing card-games, puzzles, socccer, going to the park etc…
    I can speak a quite good English, so there would be no need for you to learn Italian unless you wanted to.

    You will always have saturday afternoo and all Sunday off. While you are here we would like you to help out with a little bit of housework, nothing serious, just things like hoovering, emptying the dishwasher, sweeping and other normal house jobs. :D

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Treviso, our city, is a quiet town (85000 inhabitants), many people are surprised how cute it is, we don't live in the city centre, but not so far from it either, it's just about 15 minutes by bus or 30 by bike, we can provide a bike to our volunteer for the duration of the stay.

    The Summer is quite hot, Spring is ok, late Fall is sometimes really foggy and wet, Winter is not so cold but sometimes wet as well.

    We live in countryside where where there's a nice walking-cycling route in the nature between vineyard and kiwi field.

    Venice (Venezia) is just half an hour by train, while Padova and Vicenza are about one hour away.
    The same goes for seaside (Caorle or Jesolo are around one hour by bus, less if driving) and mountains, pre-alps are nearby (you can easily reach Feltre by train and Cortina with the bus).
    Other cities you can quite easily reach in a longer dayly trip are Verona, Ferrara, Bologna, Trieste, Gorizia (and Nova-Gorica in Slovenia), Udine, Cittadella, Castelfranco.
