Our family consists of mum Nadine, dad Danilo and 3 small children (aged 5, 3 and 1 year and a half) plus a soon-to-be born baby (in August). We live in Palermo in the historic center. We are young (I am 30 years old) and very joyful. Our home is often full with friends and children. I speak fluently Italian and French (I am Swiss-Italian) and a little bit of English.
Our hospitality is typically Sicilian: warm and sunny.
Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
We are a very cheerful and easy going family. Palermo and the surrounding area are wonderful to discover and in summer you can enjoy the see close-by.
Most of the time I'll be at home and the children go out in the mornings, hence the work can be managed with a lot of flexibility. Weekends would be free, except for extraordinary and sporadic needs.
The last moths of pregnancy will be hard for me, reason for which I am looking for help with the household (cleaning and tyding up) and with the children (play with them, take them to the beach, etc.)
We have a single room in our apartment, maybe even the availability of a room on the floor above ours.
Our house is in the historic center, beautiful both day and evening, when the locals open. We are near the bus lines that take you to all the major cities of Sicily. we have very nice beaches just a few miles away by car or bus.
