    We are Isabella & Simon, an Irish/English couple with 2 very active, fun & chatty boys, Balthazar aged 7 & Oberon aged 5 & Safira 18 months. We are open minded artists who enjoy the slower pace of life in the beautiful Italian countryside. Our passions are painting, art, music, nature, cooking, culture, reading, alternative lifestyles, chatting with new people! We have renovated a large beautiful and ancient farmhouse in the Florentine hills that we bought 10 years ago & are settling into life here full time. It has incredible views of a castle, vineyards and olive trees and is only half an hour south of Florence.
    We both work from home in our studio but are flexible with hours.
    Come & join us in family life & explore what the amazing area has to offer!

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We are very fortunate to live in a very culturally rich & breathtaking part of the world. We are half an hour south of beautiful Florence, 40 minutes north of Siena & less than an hour from the Mediterranean Sea. We are a 5 minute walk to a small village which has 2 deli shops, a bank, a pharmacy, 3 bars one of which makes excellent pizzas at weekends. There are numerous places to eat locally. We are surrounded by rolling hills with many places to go walking for miles. We are close to mountains & hot springs, we are surrounded by vineyards & olive groves, the famous area of Chianti is on our doorstep. The wine and local food is delicious. It’s rural & the produce is taken very seriously here. Tourism is too, there are countless places of interest to visit all close by, Volterra, San Gimignano, Lucca, Arezzo to name but a few. You will never be bored here! It is somewhere to come & enjoy nature, eat well & experience the heart of Tuscan living.

    We are keen to meet someone or a couple who is easy going, creative but responsible too. Someone who isn’t afraid to ask questions & to chip in around the place! Ideally somebody who can play & engage with our kids, interested in creating art or sharing their skills. Teaching Italian would be amazing too for all of us! Doing fun arts & crafts, spending as much time outside with them or inside playing LEGO. we also need help around the house with everyday chores & landscaping the small garden, preparing a vegetable patch etc.

    The main house is large but the available space is a comfortable double room en suite in an annexe with its own entrance. There is a new pull out sofabed, coffee table, a table and chairs. The bathroom is large with a shower also.
    You would have use of the main house, kitchen & laundry room. We would share meals & food. We have also just adopted two kittens & we also have a budgie!

    Algo más...

    We are a relaxed family who’s daily plans often change so therefore we would be looking for someone just as flexible too, who doesn’t mind there being no fixed routine. We enjoy being around fun, creative & open minded people & really just someone who feels comfortable in a sometimes noisy family home ;)
