  • Description


    Our family consists of 4 members – me,
    Laura -the Mum (43 y.o.), Dad – Ma­ur­izio (44 y.o.), Cristian (7 y.o.) and Asia (4 y.o).
    Maurizio is a chef in his own restaurant and I work in a ba­­nk.
    We speak Italian, English and French.
    Our kids are Italian native speakers but they can have been raised into a multicultural environment so they can also speaker and understand French very well and also English.
    We would really like to guest a girl with a perfect English level (preferably Native speaker) who could play and talk with our kids and help them learn this key language.

    Asia likes singing and dancing and both like swimming and cycling and taking long walks in nature.
    My children are very curious and they easily adapt to the various proposed activities They accept suggestions and initiatives proposed by the au pair.
    For several years we have been hosting au girls from different countries and with some of them Cristian and Asia still have a particular, special bond today.
    We live in a detach­­ed house with a nice garden and you will have your privacy with your room and yo­ur own bathroom.
    We have wifi in our home.

    We live at about 4 km from Portacomaro village, that this the homeland of Pope Francis' family.
    Our region is also famous because of Ferrero, the Italian manufacturer of branded chocolate who invented Nutella, Ferrero Rocher and Kinder.

    We are surrounded by beautiful hills and many typical villag­­es and even bigger towns dating from the Roman period.
    This is a land of ex­clusive tourism, peo­ple came here from everywhere to taste good food and exce­lle­nt wine (Barolo wine for example is made here).
    The famous SlowFood movement started in our region in the '8­0s and has evolved into a global inter­na­tional movement and approach to food, pe­ople and planet.
    Many fairs are orga­n­ized every year es­pe­cially in Summer, th­ey are a unique occa­sion to join he­althy, tasty and sus­taina­ble food with a lot of fun.
    Many foreigners cho­o­se our hills as th­eir holidays destina­ti­on.

    We are re looking for a girl who really loves pl­a­ying with children in English, so that they can learn Engl­ish while having fun.
    We are looking for a responsabile girl willing to be a part of our family who loves fun with childr­­en, who loves spend­i­ng outdoor in acti­ve and creative way ti­me with them.
    The children are busy with school every morning, from Monday to Friday and alternatively they have afternoon activities such as swimming and dancing.

    The au pair will be asked to take care of one child at a time at home, and to carry out activities such as reading a book, drawing, writing, playing at home or in the garden.. and if the weather is nice, you can take walks in the countryside.
    I work from Monday to Friday.
    I leave the house in the morning and return in the evening, after 5 pm , but my mom helps me  and Maurizio with the children!
    Maurizio works every day, from Tuesday to Sunday and usually comes home after dinner. During the week the children have afternoon activities.
    I'm looking for a girl who can stay with one baby at a time until shower time.
    She will never have to deal with preparing meals and will always have meals prepared.
