Italy is famous for its amazing food, the wonderful and warm culture, beautiful views and lovely weather. No wonder we have a lot of wonderful au pairs wanting to visit your beautiful country!
Aside from the obvious benefits of hosting an au pair, it can also be pretty stressful. What about your privacy? We have experienced that you don't have to worry about that at all. Au pairs love to go on adventures, they are adventurous types! Especially in a beautiful country like Italy, who wouldn't want to make memories, experience the wonderful culture and taste all the amazing pasta's and ice cream Italy is known for?

Questions of other parents in Italy

When do I have to pay the €1000,- euro fee?

You pay after we’ve found you your perfect au pair.

  • They are not Italian;
  • They are not married and do not have any children;
  • They can afford their trip to Italy;
  • They would love to go and live with a host family in Italy to take care of their kids and get to know the Italian culture & language.
What requirements do you have to meet as a host family in Italy?
  • You have at least one child under the age of 18 living in your home;
  • You can provide your au pair with their own room;
  • You would like to have an au pair join your family on a temporary basis to help with childcare and light household tasks;

What if the video calls with candidates don't lead to a match?

It happens! It’s unfortunate, but of course we will do our best to find you another candidate who better suits your family.

Does an au pair help with housekeeping?

Yes, the au pair can do light housework. They can help with vacuuming, emptying the dishwasher, putting in a wash and folding laundry – but no cleaning of the bathroom or cleaning windows for example.

What do you pay an au pair in Italy?

There are no official rules what you have to pay an au pair in Italy, but host families tend to pay their au pairs 250-300 euros per month. This is seen as pocket money and not as salary, as an au pair exchange is a cultural exchange and not a job.

How many hours per week does an Italian au pair work?

You can decide together with your au pair how many hours you want them to help you out. It may never be more than 30 hours per week and not more than 6 days per week. They may not work more than 5 hours per day.

How many days off does the au pair have?

In Italy, au pairs get at least one day off per week. At least once per month, it has to be a Sunday.

There are no official rules regarding holidays for au pairs, but usually au pairs are entitled to a paid holiday of 2 weeks when employed for at least six months.

There are no official rules regarding public holidays for au pairs. When we look at other countries, is it common that the au pair has a free day when it’s a public holiday. This way they can really experience the Italian culture.

Does my au pair need to register in Italy?

Yes. Au pairs that are from the EU have to have:

  1. A valid passport or ID-card
  2. The “host declaration” (dichiarazione di ospitalità)
  3. Register at the town hall (anagrafe)
  4. Apply for a Tax ID Number (codice fiscale)
  5. Register with the national health service (SSN – Servizio Sanitario Nazionale)

If the au pair comes from an non-EU country, it depends what they need on what country they’re from and how long they stay. Check what your au pair needs right here.
