  • Description

    Description

    We're Fabio, Elisabetta with a 4 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

    Fabio, Elisabetta and Fermo

    Help

    the volunteers will help an estimated 4 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.
