  • Description


    I'm looking for a WA (only girls) who wants to join our little family in Brescia! (Long stay most welcome and priority to UE girls)

    My name is Laura and I'm a single mom with my two daughters Virginia, 11, and Vittoria, 1, living in Brescia (between Milan and Verona and near Garda lake).

    Our dog Jack lives with us! He is a mix of Husky and Czech Wolf, with a sweet character. He uses to stay downstairs in the garden during the day, and sleep in the house during the night.

    I'm looking for a kind, organised, adaptable wa. I would like our wa to have experience with young children.

    Our hobbies are different: I like to go out with other mums and help other people, moreover I'm interested in outdoor sports. I used to ride horses till one year ago.
    Virginia is definitely a horse rider, she uses to jump with her horse.

    I'm a very open-minded person, or at least I try my best to be, I would be really excited for this new experience (I have never hosted someone before). I like to learn new languages and new cultures.

    Vittoria, the little one, is very active, too, full of energy, curious and so cute. She loves animals and exploring everything she sees.

    Brescia is near and connected to many cities: by train you can easily reach many places, one hour from Milan, 40 minutes from Verona, Mantua..
    The presence of two beautiful lakes like Garda and Iseo, makes this area a good touristic destination.
    I would be pleased to help you visit some places here.

    I'm half north Italy and half south, so you can learn too much about Italian lifestyle from us and our family!

    Bedroom with a single bed, a desk, a library and a part of a huge wardrobe (which is actually also mine), bathroom sharing. I can provide an Italian mobile SIM card (if you need it), free Wifi at home as well as Netflix and you can use my bike sometimes if I'm at work and you need it.

    I would like our wa to have lunch and dinner with us since I love to share experiences and learn from each other.

    It wouldn’t be a problem if you are vegetarian but not so easy if you are vegan, cause i provide my children a variegated diet.
