    My husband and me, both physicians, retired few years ago. Now we live in a nice village by the sea in Sicily. The name of the place is Donnalucate, and it has become famous for the TV series of "Commissario Montalbano" from the successful series of novels written by Andrea Cammilleri.

    We live in a beautiful villa, located in the sea front, with a nice garden and a swimming pool. We need a help for out two grand children (six and three years old) who spend every year with us the month of July.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The helper should have all mornings and weekends free. Wonderful beaches are at walk distance, and interesting places are easily aattainable by bus or using one of our bicycles, or even a small car. We'd like also to talk with her in order to explain customs and traditions of our region. We could also go around together to discover the beauties of this part of Italy.There are sites protected by UNESCO for its late baroque buildings, remarkable palaces and churches , gentle people and tasty cuisine. Most important thing is the fact that all the area is peaceful and welcoming, especially towards foreigners.
