During your stay with us you will have free time to join for example Italian classes or simply learn the best Italian with us at home. Tuscany has many tourist attractions so it will also be possibile for you to go sightseeing on your own or with us.
I am looking for English native speaker girl or boy to join our family next Summer. Need someone who will take care of the boys when I am at work (I am a tour guide), main task will be teaching them English and do activities with them.
Gabriele is 16 and wants to be a pilot, and now he is studying aeronautical engineering; Alessio is 13 and he is the artist of the family: he plays the drums, attends a theatre school and next year he will study at art high school.
We are a very friendly and welcoming family who loves outdoor activities such as hiking and biking. In the summer we mostly go to the beach or to jump in fresh water little rivers not far from us. The boys also love fishing and are very good at it. We also enjoy travelling both across Tuscany and Europe.
