    Minimun 2 weeks stay.
    Skill request in this moment extra of what is mentioned in our profile : word and power point or similar programs for presentation and layout.

    We are a family with a lot of experience hosting foreign students and travellers (we are in different projects online) and we have already hosted more than 40+ people from all over the world, most of them from Far East Asia.

    You can count on us when we accept you, but PLEASE be sure about your intention (don't change your mind a few days before coming... you are NOT the only human being on this planet and on this website).

    In this moment we accept ONE (experienced) workawayer (and feedback if it is possible, but not mandatory), willing to help with family life (cooking, shopping and help around the house) - english or spanish spoken (any other language is welcome).

    We ask for help in our daily life in exchange for an Italian cultural experience, good food and a relaxed environment.
    We don't have a television so after dinner we like to chat and play cards or board games.
    I'm an Italian teacher and I can help you learn italian or lend you books and materials. We also have a large library with books in Italian, English, French and Japanese.

    Usually we ask for :
    HELP around the HOUSE: cleaning and some ironing if time is tight
    Help with COOKING
    Language teaching to our boys (English, Spanish, Japanese, German)

    PLEASE NOTE : My job has to do with immigration and rules on it, unfortunately I CAN'T help travellers that need to apply for IUS SANGUINIS citizenship.

    For travelers with dogs:
    We have Cleopatra Grey and Nanako, our cats. They own the house. If you have good insurance for YOUR dog, maybe we can discuss.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    In our family sharing time and space is part of our path of peace and intercultural understanding: Yes, you get free accomodation in exchange for some work, but we are confident that a free cot and meal is not the only purpose for being on this website.

    After some previous experience I'd like to add:
    - Know yourself first ... know what you really are able to do and what YOU have no clue at all.
    - We believe that travelling IS a way to learn more about cultures, values and beliefs and by hosting we offer our children a way to learn about the world.
    - We also expect that you are interested in expanding your mind, not only expanding your collection of selfies to send home.
    - We hope to meet helpers that prefer to play cards or table games with us instead of playing video games in their room or watching Netflix: honestly you can do that at home, you don't need to fly around the world (it's not eco).

    We live in Pordenone, a small city 1 hour from Venice, Udine, Treviso; 2 hours from Trieste and so on. We are also close to the mountains and sea. There are many undiscovered places like Aquileia, a national park, villas, etc. For artists there is an excellent school of mosaic in Spilimbergo, with week-end classes.
    We request at least 2 weeks stay (but flexible): you should love to stay with TEENS (not only on paper) and CATS.
    You can expect a modest, clean and comfortable accommodation (no castle, no room overlooking some kind of breathtaking panorama, no swimming pool etc. )...simple, but cheerful family.
    Vegetarian welcome although we are not vegetarian, but we adapt to have lunch and dinner together... with vegan I will have to say it will be more complicated.

    I'm an Italian language teacher, but I'd like to improve my language skills (English, Japanese, French, Spanish) . Leo would like to become fluent in English and he is now learning German and Tommy loves Spanish, but he needs to improve English (for school and for life).

  • Alojamiento


    We have a room with a single bed. In this room there is also a wardrobe, bathrobe, towels and bed sheets; if you come in two we can offer an inflatable mattress or a sofa bed.
    Food - I'm quite a good cook and once a week we make our own pizza.
    It is a friendly environment and we are an easy going family.
    We have wireless internet access, but we are confident our guests can stay away from Mobile or PC without problems and we hope you can find your way to the nearest breadshop or supermarket without GPS or google maps... (It has happened.)
