    Hi, I’m Ilaria and we are a family of 5.

    My husband Filippo is a geologist and I’m a fashion designer.

    We have 3 kids (15-8-still 3 years), 2 dogs, we are looking for someone kind, babies and nature lovers to help us around!

    We live in a small village called Sarzana, in Liguria. Our big cottage is on the top of heel in a peaceful site, looking at the sea. A lot of wonferful paths are around our home, crossing VIA Francigena.
    Driving license is suggested.
    Beautiful 5 terre are 30 minutes driving, Florence is 1 hour and half driving, Lucca 40 minutes.

    We are vegetarians, we cook homemade bread, pesto and pasta and I'll teach you, if your interested!
    We love simple and natural life!
    We would make a vegetable garden, in a while bees arrive and we'll make honey together!
    We have a lot of project around family and nature.

    We look forward to welcoming you!
