    **we are looking for immediate help from since now to 5 July and for after the 19 August**

    Hi, I'm Anna, I left the city to breathe clean air and enjoy long walks in nature every day. Now I live in Abruzzo, a land rich in biodiversity and breathtaking landscapes in the heart of Italy. I am in the little village of Roccamorice, we live in a stone house that I love so much and on one side there is the sea, on the other the mountains. With me there is little Thea and her father, Pablo, who is very busy during the summer because of the vegetable garden and the animals. We love meeting new people and their cultures. Living with us means doing something creative every day!

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    The house is surrounded by greenery. You easily have the opportunity to take walks in the mountains or by the sea, trips to the river, horseback riding, and the opportunity to practice:

    • trekking;
    • climbing;
    • tennis;

    We can organize trips together, from ancient villages to caves, from woods to castles. Abruzzo offers many beauties and you can certainly also plan a visit to Rome. You could also happen to Florence because there are grandparents there!

    At home we offer:

    • a piano and a guitar that you can play whenever you want;
    • the opportunity to practice Italian;
    • the opportunity to learn Italian: I speak English, French and Spanish fairly well, so I can guide you in learning the basic rudiments of Italian;
    • the opportunity to get to know Italian cuisine and learn how to cook: pasta, pizza, risotto, soups and many other goodies, the simplest are usually the best;
    • the opportunity to learn how to make effective presentations that's my computer work (I know very well Keynote or Powerpoint, visual communication and storytelling).

  • Aide


    The help required consists in staying with me and with little Thea of 1 years old to do home improvement work or creative workshops together.

    The typical day is more or less like this: Thea wake up around 7:00 and she stays with me until 9:00.
    You can sleep and start your work day at 9 and start by going for a walk with Thea until 10:30. Then come back because Thea needs a snack and then you can play with her in the garden or at home with musical instruments, spending joyful time with Thea until 13:00. Then we have lunch all together, we prepare the lunch for you and after lunch you clean the kitchen (put the dishes in the dishwasher, wash any used pans, clean Thea's high chair, sweep to the ground). After lunch you are free until 17 or more. At 17, if you want, we will go for walks, creative activities, yoga, gardening, tourist visits.
    Then we ask help when preparing food for diner and, if we go out to eat, we ask you not to be passive but to help us as much as possible with the management of the child. In general we ask you not to be passive but understand that we are new parents who need a hand and we are very grateful and feel lucky to receive it. After diner you clean the kitchen as after lunch, usually it takes about 20 minutes. In the evening we put Thea to sleep and wake up if she needs us at night. Your day will start again the next day at 9. But... Not every day is the same and we try not to get bored!

    As for house cleaning, we need daily help in cleaning the kitchen, after lunch and after dinner. We will not ask you to clean rooms, floors, sanitary ware, wash cloths etc... but every time you can help in keeping the house clean and tidy is very appreciated! For example, helping us to keep Thea's toys in their binders and anything else to collect and arrange to keep the rooms tidy.

    You have 2 days off a week that you can use however you want and we can also plan activities and visits together.

    We are also preparing a safe space to make a small home kindergarten, so we will work on the arrangement of the place and the creation of games for children with recycled materials.

    You will have a delightful and bright single room with a three-quarter bed.
    Shared bathroom on the bedroom floor and another bathroom for everyone on the ground floor. Internet access throughout the house. Green spaces in abundance.

    I generally cook every day but if you like to cook, you are welcome too. The kitchen is very large and is always at your disposal! You will eat genuine and local food, we will have fun cooking it, you can request changes or suggest recipes. I love to cook and if you want to learn Italian cuisine I will be happy to share my experience with you.

    We live in Roccamorice, a small village within the Majella National Park, connected by bus to the main cities. The train station is 20 minutes away and we can bring you to take the train or we can decide to do some sightseeing together.

    Helpers here can visit a lot of interesting places.
    Below is a small list of some of the places you can visit but you can find much more on the website

    - Rome 180 km
    - Chieti 20 km
    - Pescara 30 km

    Near us there are very suggestive places such as the hermitage of San Bartolomeo, the ancient village of Fara san martino, the Orfento valley, the Trabocchi coast for a wild sea, the mountains of Gran Sasso, Monte Amaro, the Monti della Laga, Lake Scanno, The plain of Campo Imperatore called the small Tibet, the medieval village of Santo Stefano di Sessanio and Rocca Calascio, the Stiffe Caves, Alba fucens, the Lavino park with its emerald waters.

    I am a Sagittarius, I like to travel, meet new people and make my land known. My goal will be to make you feel at home, to introduce you to the Italian way of life and to the historical and naturalistic beauties of my country. At university I studied ethno-anthropology because the encounter between cultures is in my DNA. What I want is not only to receive help at home but above all to offer an experience of relaxation and discovery in this wonderful and wild land that is Abruzzo.

    We have a network of friends composed by artists, permaculturists, holistic therapists. Contact me for more information, ask me your questions for better plan your trip and your experience in Italy.
