  • Description


    We are a family of 4 people, parents and 2 daughters. Margherita is 21 years and she's studying in Milan, while the other is Ginevra, 10 years old, who's finishing elementary school. We live in a beautiful typical country italian house in the middle of nature 15 km from the peculiar city of Bologna, reachable both by train and bus.
    We would need a native English girl/woman who would take care of the house and of Ginevra by the time she returns from school until late afternoon. We provide a small apartment and a car for travel.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a great natural environment, near the italian capital of food, Bologna. A workaweyer could learn how to cook properly the typical italian musts and in the meanwhile live in a romantic and historical city.
    In fact Bologna is one of the most important italian city, characterized by its red roofs, its kilometres of arcades, its university life and wine. It's a city surrounded by nature, half built on hills and full of opportunities to learn and know new people.

  • Help


    We need a girl/woman who is able to take care of the house, and who has a driving license to take back home from school Ginevra. The european driving license is accepted in Italy, while for Americans it would be necessary to ask an international one or to provide an ufficial document required for the validity of it.

  • Languages spoken

    Italian: Fluent

  • Accommodation


    The workaweyer would have her own apartment with a kitchen too, so it would be free to eat by herself or with us.
    It's a quite big apartment with 2 bedrooms, a living room and, as said before, a kitchen.
