  • Description


    My name is Sara, I am 41 years old and I live with my 10 year old son Leonardo in a house located in a small village in Scandicci at 10km from Florence.
    I am looking for someone to help me in the daily tasks of the house and to take care of my son mainly when he is not at school expecially during summer holidays that in Italy are from the half of june to the half to september.
    I like cooking and finding healty products from our local producers as soon as possible. Olive oil, wine, eggs and part of the vegetables and fruits that you'll find in my house are produced by my family.
    I'm not vegetarian but you'll find more vegetables in my table than meat.

    For your independence, a private bedroom and internet are available.

    I offer a room under the roof of my house with a skylight. There isn't a door that separates the room from the rest of the house, but only a flight of stairs. The house is quite big and you can use all the spaces, there are two bathrooms and a little garden.
    You can reach my house from the center of Florence by public transports (40 minutes by bus) or by bike (there is a public service to rent a bike called Mobike).
