We're Fabio, Elisabetta with a 5 y.o. boy, Fermo. We live in a big old house with garden in the quaint and picturesque neighborhood of Laglio on the shores of Lake Como.
We are looking for English native speakers who are happy to share their time as well as teaching English to our son while visiting one of the most beautiful destination worldwide.
Since 2003 we invested our resources to renovate the family's summer house "villa Albonico" with the aim to create an environment where peace, comfort, friendliness and a good atmosphere meet.
In 2016 we had our first experience with workaway and from then on we were so lucky to have hosted very polite and lovely volunteers, from the youngest to the oldest, who helped us a lot and with whom was a pleasure to share our house and day-to-day life as well as our experiences.
More than anything, we are looking for someone who is kind, cheerful, nature lover, open minded, sociable and enjoys being with children as our son who is very full of energy, but easygoing and sweet.
We provide a private bedroom with wi-fi, tasty Italian food and a lot of free time to enjoy lake Como and our beautiful region as well as having the opportunity to meet a lot of people from different countries and walk of life.
If you think you might be interested, please get in contact and we can talk on Skype.
Looking forward to hear from you

Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We offer the volunteer to live for a while on lake Como, enjoying the beautiful surroundings, experience the Italian way of life in a family atmosphere. Learn about gardening and growing vegetables as well as traditional italian cooking.
Also the volunteers will have the opportunity to meet peoples from all around the world.
the volunteers will help an estimated 5 hours per day and 5 days per week playing and teaching to our child who has already a fairly good knowledge of the english language.The help will consist on sharing time with the kid using the English language: playing, reading books, going to the park and the swimming spots at the lake.
We have a vegetables patch and we grow our own organic products and there is always something to do: weeding, watering the plants and flowers in the morning, trimming, sweeping.No particular experience is required since we will be always in the nearby altough we appreciate those who can also work in autonomy.
