Hello! I am Sonia, an high school teacher, live in Florence. I make a simple life, with my job and interests (health, to read, nature walks, cinema and TV series, yoga, philosophy and spirituality). I live alone in my house near the river and the park of Cascine. I try to have as it is possible a sustenaible lifestyle, and I eat vegan. Here there is a cat, she lives free, and I have an Internet access adsl.

Help in the house
I live near the historical center of Firenze, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, capital of Renessaince, rich in art and culture. It is also surrounded of wonderful hills and close to other cities and places of tourist interest (Siena, Pisa, San Gimignano ecc.). The center of the city and the railway station (3 km away) is easily accessible by tramway or bus. There are a lot of attractions, exibishions, activities, museums, events, schools, courses and workshops, crafts and shops, cultural itineraries and nightlife. You can meet a lot of people and young people Florentine or of all the word that are here for tourism, study or work. You can learn Italian language in the city of Dante Alighieri, or if you wont art, painting, sculpture, fashion, architecture in the city of Michelangelo and Leonardo.
With my job I have a little time for the rest, so I need as soon as possible a strong, quiet, willing and methodical help for the house and the garden, general maintenance and any various commissions (maximum 4 hours per day for 5 days a week). I would like also to improve some furnishings of my apartments and I need help and advice to do that. Then it would be better that you have the driving license, practical skills and organization, knowing a bit Italian and wants to improve it. I'd like also to improve my English so we can do both together!
In my house there isn't a very guest room, but I have a guest room in an other flat that I use for rent, close to my house - empty at the moment. It is a simply accomodation, attic flat with 4 rooms, essencial but functional, silence and into the green, with closed services. After you can manage the rent for help me.
Food is usually vegetable, raw and cooked, cereals (rice, farro, avena, quinoa ecc..) pasta, legumes, fresh and dried fruit, nuts, seeds, vegetable milk, jam, integral bread and rusks.
My life is withdrown and quiet. In the past I wanted to be a workawayer but at that time there isn't workaway! It is fantastic that now I can be an host for who wants travel and learn with this great opportunity!
