    They can improve their English (I’m Australian & am an English teacher & Cambridge examiner.) They can live in a beautiful part of Italy on Lake Garda. They can learn Italian. We live a 10 minute walk from the beach & across the road from a beautiful nature reserve with the best views of the southern part of the lake. It’s great for nature lovers & those who love doing sport. The train station in 20 minutes from us & you can visit Verona, Milan, Venice etc in under 2 hours.

    Hello, we’re looking for someone to play in German with our 4 year old daughter and 22 month old son. At the end of February our wonderful Austrian au pair will unfortunately go home, and she will leave a huge gap in our hearts. She has become such an important part of our family, and we hope to find someone else our kids will bond with.

    We live in Lake Garda, and own a holiday resort where we have contact with lots of German guests, and this is why we are searching for a German speaking Sunday pair. Our daughter is sweet and full of energy and loves meeting new people. Our son is a happy and very affectionate little soul and his interests at the moment include waving and pointing at birds. :) We would want you to be happy here too, and will do our best to make you feel at home & to help you enjoy the Italian lifestyle.

  • Accommodation


    In March (& maybe April) you would have your own 2-bedroom apartment with living room, shower room, kitchen and terrace. It is attached to our house. Then you would stay in our house in your own bedroom with a bathroom. You are more than welcome to eat all meals with us. Those are some of our best moments with the girl who is currently staying with us.
