  • Description


    We accept just long Workawayer !! More than 1 month!

    We'd prefer JUST girls who REALLY love babies and really love spending time with them!

    We are a family of 4, we live in Altamura, a wonderful city in south Italy(Puglia).
    I am Viviana and I am in my thirties, I'm a housewife and I have decided to dedicate my life to taking care of my babies who were born in July 2015 and April 2018.
    My husband is a construction engineer.
    Altamura is very close to Matera (UNESCO, European culture capital 2019).
    Altamura is the city of the best baked bread! The closest airport is Bari which is connected by bus and trains (appulolucane).
    I would like to teach the foreign languages in order to raise them multilingual.
    I really love hosting people because I also think that is the best way to teach my children the joy of sharing!
    I try to respect nature and the world, we used reusable nappies for our children , I make lots of eco friendly detergents by myself.
    We prefer Mediterranean diet with lots of fruits and vegetables not too much meat(once a week!) so if you are veggie lover , you will be in the right place:)
    We prefer native English people but also French , Spanish or German or any other languages are ok.
    We love that our hosts become part of family so there are not strict schedules just helping each other like in a normal family, exchange life experiences and improving English.
    I accept JUST girls or couples who REALLY love babies and really love spending time with them!
    Of course my children are my life and my priority is their wellness! So please , do not apply if you are in doubt or you don’t like too much children.
    I do not very much like saying what i need to do in the house every time, so if you see dust , dirty, mess around or clothes to fold, just do it :)) I ask you to be neat and tidy.

    Busy times are: after breakfast cleanup, before lunch (while i’m Cooking play with babies or help with cooking) after lunch cleanup, before dinner (help with whatever needs to be done), and after dinner its family time, we like to spend time together with my husband home, so you will do most of the cleanup.
    Playtime with kids in between :))

    I enjoy teaching cooking and learning new recipes from people from other countries.
    If you want, i can teach you some Italian recipes, as i often bake bread, desserts, pizza, pasta and other famous dishes. Although we eat everything, vegetarians or vegans are welcome. We prefer organic and homemade food, I prepare granola, fresh bread (with organic flour), oat milk. Lots of food (eggs, chicken, some fruits and vegetables) come from our country house, so super organic.
    I am keen to tell you that almost all of my hosts have come again to our house because they feel so good and real friendships start! :)

    All the weekends are free so you Can explore the area. Actually we prefer you to leave during the weekend so the family can enjoy time alone.

    UPDATE FEB 2022: because in this period we need more privacy, we decided to offer tho Workawayer a b&b that we will pay for her. So she will work all the afternoons for 5 hours from Monday to Friday. Weekends are free. All meals are included and the Workawayer will be part of the family meals. It’s important you are very very fluent in English because my priority now is my kids to learn English.

    Please read until the end of the description and when you contact me , write POPCORN so I can understand you have read all! ;)
