  • Description


    We are four people, a married couple with two little boys. The British husband is a successful painter and is frequently in England for business and the American mother is a writer and remains in Italy with the two school-aged boys at a mountaintop country estate. The boys go to school every day when it is in session. We want to host a warm-hearted child minder to help the mother run the household joyfully. The two boys are bilingual and speak Italian and English. The family speaks English at home.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a culturally rich area bordering Tuscany-Umbria with many possible daytrips to cultural events. Nearby are the medieval towns of Gubbio, Assisi, Perugia, Siena, Florence, Cortona, etc. We live in a luxurious large country estate dating back to the seventeenth century with a pool on top of Mt Corona. We want to share with you the panoramic views of castles, olive groves and verdant mountain range. Pristine location frozen in time. Day hikes and mountain biking are popular on our quiet road.

  • Help


    We are seeking an experienced and warm-hearted child minder to help with two children ages 5 and 6. We will check your childcare references as we do not want to host a smoker, drug user or person with a criminal record, or lack of experience with young children. Also help keeping the house tidy, helping with kids' laundry and planning meals. If you you like to stay for at least two months (longer preferred) please apply with childcare references.

    What else ...

    You will not have to work everyday. On your days off you can use the bus station for any trips you want to make further afield, connecting to train stations if you wish. If you want to bring your own car, there is parking for it here. We have lots of experience hosting au pair girls who are still very close with the family. We want the child-minder to feel part of the family, so stay long enough for this to occur.
