  • Description


    We are a country-side loving family. We live near a small historic city (Acqui Terme, Piemonte) from Roman origin, with beautiful hills and ancient hot springs. We are looking for trustworthy young people who love nature and who love taking care of animals and gardening activities. We have 2 very friendly dogs and a lot of cats.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Wine producing area, agricoltural region, very well known for its good food and great sense of hospitality. A country house with a large garden, lots of plants and trees and our dogs and cats. There is always a lot of work to do in such an environment so plenty to keep busy with. In a very pleasant atmosphere. By July we would have also our new swimming pool. A great opportunity to learn Italian as a language together with history and gastronomy.

    Can possibly accept pets

    We have plenty of animals, so we need to make sure that other pets are not a threat or a stress to our own pets. We need to assess on a case by case basis.
