  • Description


    we are a big family living in a big house with a big garden and a small dog (Yorkshire terrier).
    We're a family of 7, we live right outside Vicenza in a beautiful countryside house. In summer we love to have dinner in the porch enjoying each other's company with a delicious hand-made meal.
    We'd love to host someone who likes the outdoor and garden/pool work to help us out with our maintenance.

    the person coming would be staying in a room by themselves inside the house with a private bathroom right outside the bedroom. In the house there's the parents and probably, depending on the weeks, 2-3 girls (18-25) and a boy, 16. The whole family is well-mannered and respects privacy.

    with their time off it's very easy to go to Vicenza, by train it's a 15 minutes ride and by bus a 30 minutes ride, both stops are very close to the house. From Vicenza it's also very easy to travel to Verona, Venice, Padova and to go to the sea and mountains as well.
