Our home

The house is an old country building divided in two parts, one of which belongs to very good friends of us. The garden surrounding the building is more than 4000 m2, and there are big walnut trees and many rose plants. At the groundfloor in our part we have the living area, with kitchen, study and a large room with sofa and TV (also a piano). Al the first floor with have 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We have also the possibility of non contemporary exchange, with a small (1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 1 living room) part of the house al the groundfloor that is independent form the rest of the house: in this way you can have the advantage of our help for your holidays here, and a completly flexible period.
