Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

I’m looking for a live-in housekeeper not really a caregiver since im older but very able bodied. I dont have any issues at all in mobility or other.
There's not to much cleaning since I already have a local cleaning lady coming 2 times a week. Thus your focus is to communicate with me/keep me company, cooking lunch and dinner, dishes, laudry, maintaining the house clean, what the local cleaning lady does not do during the week, some gardening (no prior skills required), setting the table before meals and celeaning it after. Being a helpful hostess when I have guests for lunch/dinner etc. See detalis under job describtion...
Note : you'll have time to study or for your leisure if you'll organize your work time, roughly it should take no longer than 5 hours per day of work ( lunch+dinner cooking and cleaning after meals included). You are also offered to go to laungage course if wanted.

You will get an official monthly salary and normal job contract. You can also get a job contract trough my logistics company if you prefer that.

Salary starts at 800 euro but can be higher based on how much you do per day and how well you do it.
Salary according to the standards for live-in housekeepers in Italy.

Your living and food and fuel/gas for the car is all free just like an AuPair. You will have access to one of my cars that is useful for grocery shopping/errands or your private nessesery activities.

Note that if you are coming from outside Europe, when you are under a normal job contract you will automatically have health insurance like any other Italian.

I am looking for somebody who preferably can stay from at least 6months but preferbly longer if everything feels right for both parties.

I live alone, I am not married. My 3 children are grown up long ago, now with their own families. I’m sometimes busy with my company, sometimes at home, since my children have partial responsibility in my company.
There are 2 outdoor cats in house, unfortunatelly no other pets allowed in house if they are not very calm with other animals and can get along well with my 2 cats.

I live in a big house with a large garden.
I live in a beautiful historic town. Center of town is close to my house. Close to the beautiful Dolomite mountains.
Bassano del Grappa is 70 km from Venice, connected by 1 hour train. Around 1 and 15 min hour drive to Venice airport or the famous Venice Islands from my house.

Beautiful clear water mountain river passing trough the town. There is a popular trail along the river for walkers and runners, where I sometimes walk in the morning/before lunch. There is also a senic bicycle trail at the edge of the mountain area just 20 min buy car from the house. The bicycle can be taken in the car.
I have several bicyles including 1 electic bicycle that can be used.

I need a gentle, honest, sincere, feminine and intelligent person, able to communicate and have a conversation. A presentable girl/women who act’s like a lady. I care a lot about security and the goodwilling of the person who will live in my house.

Job Description

I have a local cleaning lady coming for 4 hours, 2 times a week to do the general cleaning of the house. Like all floors, surfaces and bathrooms in the the house, cleaning my bedroom, changing my bed sheets, cleaning the kitchen and some of the ironing of clothes and bedsheets. So what she does during the week is not required by you.

I need somebody who is relatively good in cooking, or at least have some interest/willingness in cooking :) Somebody who is flexible and proactive to the needs of the house and work timing of the day. Flexibility and being able to assess what needs to be done in the house during the day life, also on your own and being proactive in this, is the key.

I need a housekeeper who most importantly can:
- Cook lunch and dinner
- Grocery shopping
- Daily housechores
- Keeping the kitchen clean in general (including the floor of the kitchen, inside cabinets and refrigerator/freezer etc)
- Set the table before meals and clearing the table after
- Doing the laundry
- Feeding the 2 cats etc.
- Organizing the house/items in the house, and sometimes a room in the house that needs to be organized
- Help cook, set, serve, clear/clean up the table (during and after) in case I have guests in the house
- And help me in small gardening work
(Don’t worry it’s nothing complicated, you don’t need any pre knowledge about gardening or no big muscles for this type of work...)

Also occasionally for example:
- Cleaning the gym machines in the basement
- Some treatment or cleaning of outdoor seating areas and furniture
or other items in the house etc...
-Possibly running simple errands...

When I occasionally have friends at my house for lunch or dinner I need my housekeeper to prepare the food beforehand and during the lunch/dinner bringing things back and forth to the table that we might need or ask for. Bring the dessert and coffee etc...
Also, clear some plates and glasses or finished food plates from the table during the meal.
And clear/clean the table and wash the dishes after the lunch/dinner is finished.

You should be able to also cook some relatively healthy food and choose more natural/organic and most importantly quality food products. I care more about the quality of the food than the price. And avoid processed food. I will show you in the grocery shop what I usually like to buy.
I also try to lose weight.

I travel occasionally to Hungary by a short direct flight with Ryanair, where I have an apartment in central Budapest. Hopefully, my housekeeper can follow me there to work also in that big apartment with extra private room and bathroom for you. I pay for travel expenses of course.

One of my cars can be used for personal transportation and the needs of the house.
