  • Description


    My name is Raffaella, I am 49 years old and I have 2 daughters aged 14 and 10, Adele and Giulia.
    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. San Casciano V.P. is a quite town where you can find everything: public library, shops, markets, cinema, theatre, swimming pool, gym and has a good bus connection to Firenze.
    I work every day from 8.30 to 16.30 mx and my daughters are at school till 2pm monday to friday.
    Our family would like a help in our daily routine, we would love to learn and talk English even if we don't speak much English, but if you have patience and will talk slowly you will see that we could say so many things.

    We don't smoke and I'd like to have a girl who doesn't smoke.
