  • Description


    Hello everybody, my name is Davide a 26 years old italian who moved to Norway and just finished a backpacking journey around Asia. I am writing this post on the behalf of my parents.

    They live in the countryside of Genoa in a lovely little "farm" with some chickens and a big garden. After being inspired by my workwaway experience in Asia they asked me to create this profile. My father speaks fluently English while my mother has just started to study it, you will have in fact to help her with her studies.
    My father is in pension so he will usually be working around the house, he will be the one telling you what to do and where to help. My mother instead works in an office so she will be home only in the afternoon, evening and of course weekends.

    Their house is closed to Pontedecimo a lovely little village with many useful facilities such as: swimming-pool, gym, restaurants and grocery stores.

    Autres infos...

    You will be asked to work 5 hours per day and you will have two days off a week.
    In your free time you can go to the closest village, Pontedecimo (3 minutes with the car, some times my father will be able to drive you there). There you will find swimming-pool, gym, resturants, bars and other facilities. In Pontedecimo there is also the train station that connect you with the city center, in 20 minutes you can be in the historical part of Genoa where the real attractions and night life are.

    An other interesting alternative, especially for the days off is to go the the beach, in 40 minutes/1hour you can easily be there (Arenzano for example).

    The Cinque Terre, one of the nicest place in Italy (), can also be an excursion in your free day.
