Something about ourselves
We are 2 adults in our 40s(Cristina and Philip) with an eleven year old boy (Riccardo). We both work in the tourist industry and love to travel and discover new countries and cultures. Our home is so special to us that it goes without saying really how we would treat any other home we are guests with the greatest respect.
