  • Description


    My name is Raffaella, I am 49 years old and I have 2 daughters aged 14 and 10.
    In the house we are 3, I am separated, we have 2 cats and 2 birds.
    We live in the countryside, in San Casciano VP 20 minutes from the beautiful Florence.
    I work every day from 8.30 to 16.30 and my daughters stay at home during the summer. You will have to be the house for cleaning in the morning and for lunch, maximum 4/5 hours.
    I will be back at 16.30 but after your hours you can decide to stay at home or go out
    I need help at home and with the girls. You will be free on weekends, but if you want to come with us sometimes we will go to the sea.
    I would like you to stay with us for dinner to be able to talk to you English even if I don't speak much English, but if you have patience and will talk slowly you will see that we could say so many things.
    In the summer, if it's hot, you can go swimming with my daughters and spend some pleasant moments with them.

  • Accommodation


    we have a fairly large house and you can have your own room.
    We don't smoke and I'd like to have a girl who doesn't smoke.
    We could cook together, in the summer I prepare many vegetables but also pasta and meat, I always try to prepare light dishes without too much fat for our health even if we are very fond of ice cream and desserts.
    I will be very pleased if you want to cook yourself.
    Sometimes we have friends at dinner
