  • Description


    Hi! We are a family of 5. Mom Daniela 36 is Italian, Dad Gunnar 39 is Norwegian, Liam 4 years old, Mode 2 years and Mollie 7 months. We live close to the fjord in the beautiful Hardanger, on the west coast of Norway. At home we speak 3 languages English Norwegian and Italian. We have a beautiful characteristic Norwegian wood house over a little river and with a big garden. Also we have an old barn and several other old buildings around as it used to be a farm. We are looking for a person can help us with the kids a few hours a day. We just need someone that loves kids and look forward to play and have fun with them, that can help us with kids and the house. We can offer a really warm hospitality, good food (most of the time Italian food), a personal doublebed room, a cleaned and organized house, and a lot of free time in a really nice relaxing green area. Here in Hardanger you can enjoy walking in the nature, cycling, skiing, kayaking, and all what nature can offer. We can offer to practice 3 different languages. Mom can teach you Italian cooking. Kids can give you lots of love. :)

In the evening just play with them while dad is at work (not everyday) and mom has to put one by one kids to bed. We just need 2 eyes and 2 hands more when dad is at work and mom has to take care of 3 kids alone. :)
    We need a person patient that loves kids and that loves to play. Violence is not accepted! Stress is not accepted! No smoking! No alcohol! No drugs!
    We need peace love and joy!

    What else ...

    We have a bus stop in front of the house where is possible to get a bus for Bergen, Voss. We live in Øystese, Bergen is far from us 1 hour and 20 min, Voss 1 hour and 10 min. From Voss you can get trains to reach all Norway. From Bergen you can get all flights to travel around Norway and Europe easily.
    First experience!!! It will be our 1st experience we are a little scared and also exited from what an experience like this can teach us and to our children.
    We have a simple life made with long walk in the nature, skying, enjoying our kids.
    We do not have a television, we are trying to grow our children, now that they are little, away from what TV does not offer of interesting.
