  • Description


    We are looking for a girl (18÷30 years old) that can help us with our son Paolo.
    We are a family of 3 people, Daniele (38), Alice (37), Paolo (16 months), and 4 dogs (3 golden retrievers and one little mongrel).
    We live in a little town in the north-east of Italy, immersed in the countryside but very close to bigger towns and to the famous cities of Venice, Padua, Verona, Vicenza, Bologna.
    We both work during the week, while Paolo went to the daycare center, before the closing due to lockdown.
    We have already hosted a girl from the USA for 2 months, during the past winter, and it was an amazing experience for all of us. We believe that it could be a great opportunity for our family to connect with other cultures and we are waiting for you to begin this new adventure!

    We are glad to teach you Italian! We should be your personal guide for some day trips. Veneto is a region that has a rich culture and many places to visit.

  • Help


    You should stay with Paolo especially during the morning. We need also a small help with some little chores (laundry, full/empty dishwasher, tidy up your room). The remaining part of the day and the evening are free.
    We can speak both English and Italian; we are glad to teach you Italian!
    Weekends will be free or with us, as you prefer. In case, we should be your personal guide for someday trips.
    We are not looking for a simple employee but for someone who could be a part of our family.
