**Update Oct. 18,2022 - please note that we are currently building our home and won't be able to host till next summer, but we'd be happy to start thinking of having future guests!
We are a family of four, my husband and I are in our fourties, and we have two children, Rocco (13) and Lavinia (12). We leave in the beautiful upper Tiber valley in Umbria, the green heart of Italy, close to a beautiful medieval village called Montone; I run a farm with my family in the same area, where I produce wine and olive oil, while my husband is a sales agent.
We love to travel and to cook, often all together working around the kitchen. We are mainly looking for someone to practice english with, and that could give a little help with the children and at home when needed.

We hope this will be a mutual positive experience, having the chance to share different cultures, life styles and culinary traditions.
Umbria is a wonderful region, full of history, traditions and beautiful cities and towns, such as Perugia, Gubbio, Assisi, Città di Castello and many more.
We are just a couple hrs far both from Rome and Bologna, and very close to the border with Tuscany, within 1 1/2 hrs from Florence and Siena, 45' to Arezzo.
Ce projet peut impliquer des enfants. Pour en savoir plus, consultez nos directives et conseils ici.
Our kids have a good level of english, but continuous practice both for them and my husband is important, and having an english native person sharing everyday life with us would be the best way for them to improve. Previous experience with children is very welcome.
Depending on the season, if you wish, you could also help out at the farm, i.e. during grape and olive harvest.
We have an independent room ensuite w/heating and airco; we will share meals, but you can feel free to use the kitchen as you like.
During week days we spend most of the time away from home; the kids are in school till 1.20pm; you will have plenty of time to visit Umbria and Tuscany. The train station (to Perugia) is at a close by town from our home. You will also be able to get a ride to Perugia or Città di Castello, or other towns we may be going to for work or in weekends, if you want to spend more time with us.
