  • Description


    we are a smiling family made of three people plus a small dog (Stella) and a cat Charlie...me, Michela 47, working as Optician, my beautiful two daughters Ludovica 13, and Allegra 10. Stella is our puddle, as a third child for me.
    We live in a beautiful small town in tuscany: Lucca, surrounded by ancient walls, not far from the sea (Versilia) and easy to reach Firenze, Pisa, Siena... by train.
    I am quite busy with my job and basically I need help with my daughters: I look for a nice responsible and happy girl to play along with them, help with homeworks, drive our car to the sports and other activities, cook some simple meal or dinner for the girls, babysit some evenings. For that reason a little knowledge of italian language is an important skill.
    To keep her own room- restroom tidy and keep the girls stuff in order is the only housekeeping task requested.

    I am looking for a workawayer’s help in November 2020. I will be abroad 10 days to join the NY marathon that takes place on the first weekend of November. In order to help me with my daughters and take care of my pets I need a workawayer at least one week before I will leave, to get to know each other well. My ex husband and my mother in law will help me in this days as well but basically I need someone to substitute my presence for a week or more (8-9 days) and I need a responsible and trustworthy person.
