  • Description


    Hello! We are a young Italian family of 4: Ilary and Domenico, and our daughters, Viola (6) and Giulia (3). We both work in marketing and work from home most of the week. Viola and Giulia are in school and nursery, so familiarity with young children is an advantage to fitting in with the family!
    We are an active family, sporty and easy going :)
    We have a large house with a big garden close to Milan: we are 2 minutes walk from the train station and it takes just 30 minutes by train to central Milan. This area is also ideal to reach Como lake by train.

    We'd love to host an English-speaking person who is happy to be an extra helping hand in our household, playing with the girls after school. Of course it's important to know how to interact with 2 little girls.

    When messaging us, please include:
    Your travel dates (start date, duration, any flexibility), details of your relevant experience, why you think you are the right person for our family.

    Our place is a brilliant base for exploring the nature around us, Milan and Como. We worked and studied in Milan for many years so we can recommend all sorts of things to do.
    We are a busy family, so we like to have our own relaxation time in the evenings, but since we're italian, dinner time is a special moment to spend time together and chat about the day, so we would appreciate to share this moment with you.
    We would love to share our Italian culture, passions, language and cooking with you!
    We have a small garden in our backyard where we we try to grow fruits and vegetables: you can spend some time there if you have green fingers ;)
