Our client, a down to earth and informal family with 3 children (including 2 teenagers), are looking to hire a full time permanent couple to take care of their waterside estate, a beautiful modern 5 bedroom property. It is essential that at least one of you speaks fluent Italian.


This position may suit a couple who have experience working aboard yachts as the family are very water oriented and spend a lot of leisure time with boats and water sports. One of you will certainly need to have your powerboating qualifications for motorboats.


Your combined duties shall include:

  • Excellent mechanical and maintenance knowledge (a Ships engineer may be perfect) as the house is quite technical

  • Guest hosting in an informal (yet professional) environment

  • Housekeeping / Cleaning

  • Guest driving and transportation

  • Cooking – you will be required to cook well and confident catering for the household. The family enjoy European food, Italian, Mediterranean and English food. You will need to be happy catering for a Vegetarian as one of the household members is


The family are probably in residence 5-6 weeks per year in total but, they may also allow friends and guests to visit on occasion. There is also the intention to perhaps rent the property out during peak summer season so you would take care of the guests during this period. During peak busy periods, the family are open minded to securing additional local help with cleaning.


The family are also keen Skiers so you may spend time with them in the Eastern Alps in their chalet for 5-6 weeks a year.


This is a great opportunity for an informal (yet professional) couple to join a sporty family who enjoy a healthy lifestyle. Italian language skills are essential for one half of the couple.
