We are an Italian family native to Genova, living in a small estate in the suburb of Genova near the port. Marco, my husband and myself, Gabriella are in our late 50’s, our daughter Ginevra who is 21 years old is completing her studies as a nurse at the local University.
Our home is located beside the motorway, a 25mins walk from the train station called Genova Pra, on a terraced hillside. As Marco works long hours, and my daughter is busy with her studies, I need help with general maintenance around the house and gardening, especially chopping wood. We have some pets, dogs and cats, and also rabbits, chickens and sheep. As Marco is busy with work from early morning till evening, and he doesn’t speak English, you will work and interact with me during your stay.
An independent studio will be provided for you - besides full board - where you can have complete privacy. I’m happy to give you tips to explore Genova and make your stay with us fun and memorable
