  • Description


    It’s better if you can understand some Italian (If you know Spanish, you will probably understand Italian), but this is not a must!

    Dear workawayer,
    We're a young and easygoing family: I'm Clotilde, my husband is Jacopo, and the two little sisters, are Anita(9y in August2020) and Olivia(7y in November2020).
    With us also 3cats (Agata, Tito and Malù) and a dog (Siria). They stay also inside the house, so it's important you love animals and you're not allergic. Siria is a bit shy at the beginning, she’ll bark you the first day, but then she'll be so sweet!

    We are based in the north of Italy, Piedmont, in the center of Asti, just few meters from the Cathedral. The house is very big, and although we live in the center of the town, we can enjoy a nice and peaceful garden.
    There is a seasonal swimmingpool too.

    The house is quite big so I've started a b&b in July2017 and I run it just by myself.
    My husband has a businnes in photography and more precisely in the production of ceramic pictures(through a special process, you can apply photographs printed on paper on ceramic plaques to cook them in a special oven).

    We’re looking for an help around the family home with cooking/cleaning cause I'm very busy with the b&b from April to November. But we don't expect you clean up everyday and help is needed mainly in the kitchen. We’d like if you can cook dinner sometimes. A woman is coming once a week for cleaning the house.
    Sometimes, especially during summer, you can look after girls.
    Ideally we'd like hosting someone fluent in English, so girls can listen and learn some English. They go to school from Monday to Friday in the morning, but they stay at school until 17.00 on Thursday. Anita takes a karate course two times a week (Tuesday and Thursday) and Olly does skating (Wednesday and Friday). They’re home from school for summer holiday from June to the beginning of September.

    We have breakfast all together at 7,30, lunch around 13,00 and dinner around 19,30-20,30. We don’t have special food habits, we like all the food, also from others countries. We have a typical Italian sweet breakfast, with caffè or cappuccino, biscuits or croissants. At lunch we often have pasta, rice, gnocchi or agnolotti, while at dinner meat, eggs, fish, cheese, vegetables, and once a week pizza!
    We don’t smoke and we don’t drink Alcohol, a part beer and wine sometimes. We prefer hosting someone who don't smoke.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can stay in the historic center of Asti, a quite small town, ideal located to explore the surrounding, villages in countryside and Piedmont in general (Our hills are UNESCO Heritage and Lonely Planet guide 'best region to visit' choose Piedmont this year !).
    It's also easy with train go to big cities as Turin/Milan/Genova...

    You can learn more about our culture and our language too, with us, listening and speaking it at home.
    You can taste several typical delicious food and drink very good wines known and appreciate all over the world ;)
    I hope you can enjoy your time with us, having fun and learning something useful in the future!
