More information

I am Irene, I was born in Naples, Italy. I lived there until I was 17, when I left to study in Scotland. I later discovered that journalism was my passion and -after stints in Germany, Canada and the UK- made my home in Latin America.
That is where I met Nacho, a journalist born in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Our relationship took us to Chile, Venezuela and eventually Argentina. Throughout the years, I worked for the BBC, while Nacho worked for dpa, the German press agency. We eventually got married and settled in Buenos Aires. We lived there until December 2016, in a house with three lovely cats and a veg garden. (For a while we also had a lovely dog, Mike, who unfortunately passed away.)
Now we are in Europe where I am working on a big journalistic project on women's football (called A Girls' Game), and Nacho is writing a book. We also continue working as freelance journalists, writing news stories for several media around the world. (Our cats are in the same house where they used to live, well taken care of by one of Nacho's brothers!)
At the moment we are looking for a quiet place to focus on our respective projects, enjoy nature, and be in the company of some pets (we dearly miss our cats!).
We are outdoorsy and very active. (I am training for a half marathon and Nacho for a marathon at the moment.) We do not smoke, and are good gardeners. We are very sociable and curious about the world, and we love communicating with people in different environments. I speak Italian, English, Spanish, German, French and Portuguese, while Nacho speaks Spanish, Italian and English.
Our son Lorenzo, who was born in Italy but is already quite a traveller, babbles in Spanish and Italian so far. ;-)

Irene and Nacho have been house sitting my place for ten months. During this long span of time they have shown to be very relabel, responsible and caring. They have looked after my premises with love and attention. Upon my return to the house, I found the garden in perfect shape and I could enjoy their friendly attitude. During their house sitting we have been constantly in touch and they have always been precise and correct. They have been generous and always very kind and dedicated . Nacho and Irene always found intelligent and creative solutions whenever it was necessary. I wish them all best of luck for theirfuture and I fell being so lucky to have found them via Nomador. Thank you Irene and Nacho.

Grâce à Irene et Nacho, nous avons pu partir 1 mois avec l'esprit tranquille. Ils sont très responsables et pleins de bonne volonté. Concernant les animaux ou les plantes, il faut être assez précis afin de les aider à réaliser au mieux ce à quoi il faut être attentif. Le chalet était tout à fait en ordre lorsqu'ils sont partis, pas de souci!

Irene et Igniacio ont été de parfaits house sitters.
Nos animaux les ont adoptés immediatement.
Ils sont chaleureux, intéressants et autonomes.
Je recommande vivement Irène et Igniacio.

Irene and Nacho were the most wonderful house/pet sitters while we were away for almost three weeks. The dogs and cats loved them and were very well cared for in our absence. We not only came home to a clean and tidy house but also to have dinner cooked for us. They are both friendly and relaxed and were great company when we shared the house. We'd highly recommend them to anyone looking for house/pet sitters and would welcome them back to our house at any time.

Irène et Nacho ont été de parfaits home-sitters, des personnes adorables, de confiance, et qui aiment vraiment les animaux. Grâce à eux nous avons pu partir sereinement pendant trois semaines et profiter pleinement de notre voyage, sans nous faire de souci pour nos vieux animaux qui demandent une attention particulière. En effet Irène et Nacho se sont très bien occupés de nos deux chiennes et deux chats assez âgés, les câlinant souvent et les soignant quand c'était nécessaire, très attentifs à leur bien-être et à leur santé. Ils nous ont donné des nouvelles très régulièrement, n'hésitant pas à nous demander des indications supplémentaires si besoin. Nous les remercions vivement pour leur implication et leur gentillesse.
Ils ont de plus laissé la maison impeccable, ont tout nettoyé, tout rangé, et nous ont même préparé un délicieux repas à notre retour.
Nous espérons les revoir et les recommandons très chaleureusement!
