Our home

The house is a villa with a big master bedroom with a super king bed, kids room with two single beds and a cot, and a guests room with a couch that becomes a comfortable double bed. The bathroom has shower, bath and toilet. The living area is an open space with lounge, dining area and kitchen. It opens to the garden through a french door. We love cooking so the kitchen is well equipped. The house has been child-proofed and it's suitable for children, but it's lovely and comfortable for guests of all ages! There's a garden and two decks, one with a ramp - suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs (and skateboards). There's a veggie garden, herbs, a couple of fruit trees and bushes of raspberries and black currants. The house is nice and warm in winter. In summer the trees give enough shade to sit and eat outside in the garden. La casa ha tre stanze da letto, una grande stanza con letto a tre piazze, stanza dei bambini con due letti singoli e un lettino, e stanza degli ospiti con divano che si apre per diventare un comodo letto a una piazza e mezza. Il bagno ha doccia e vasca da bagno. Salotto cucina e sala da pranzo sono comunicanti. Dalla cucina si accede al giardino dove si puo' mangiare d'estate. Amiamo cucinare e la cucina e' ben attrezzata. La casa e' adatta ad ospitare bambini, ma e' comoda e piacevole per ospiti di ogni eta'! C'e' un giardino, un piccolo orto con verdure (in primavera estate e autunno), erbe, un paio di alberi da frutto e cespugli di lamponi e ribes.

Who we are

  1. We're a couple with three children, 4 years old, 2 years old and three months. We've worked for Medecins Sans Frontieres for several years, travelled and lived in different countries, mostly in Africa. We've been living in New Zealand for a few years, to study and have our children, but we're planning to return to our job with MSF in a few years. We've got family and friends in Reading, UK, in Italy and in Toronto, and we'd love to go and see them all in summer 2010. Siamo una coppia con due bambini e il terzo in arrivo nel 2010. Abbiamo lavorato per anni per Medici Senza Frontiere, viaggiato e vissuto in diversi paesi, soprattutto in Africa. Ora siamo in Nuova Zelanda per qualche anno per far crescere i bambini, in attesa di tornare a viaggiare tra qualchei anno. Abbiamo famiglia ed amici a Torino e vorremmo tornare a trovare tutti nell'estate del 2010.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live just outside the centre of town close to the hills. There are parks at walking distance, and beautiful walks from easy to more challenging on the Port Hills five minutes from here. Christchurch is the perfect base to visit New Zealand. There's lots to do and visit in and around Christchurch, and there are cheap flights to all main centres in New Zealand, bus trips and train trips to the West Coast or to the North Island. The South Island is famous for the beauty of its nature, tramping/hiking tracks and all outdoor activities, from the more relaxed to the more challenging. You can ski in winter (June to August) at Mt Hutt, close to Christchurch, or in other beautiful locations (lake Ohau, Wanaka, Queenstown). You can go to the beach, take bike tours, ride horses or just drive through the beautiful landscapes and stop at orchards for seasonal fruit or at a winery for a gourmet meal and wine tasting. We'd be happy to help you organize your trip if you wanted. Viviamo poco lontano dal centro, vicino alle colline. Ci sono parchi, e camminate bellissime sulle colline Port Hills a pochi minuti da qui. Christchurch e' la base perfetta per visitare la Nuova Zelanda. Ci sono tantissime cose da vedere e fare vicino a Christchurch e in citta', e si possono raggiungere tutte le altre zone della Nuova Zelanda. L'isola del Sud e' famosa per la sua splendida natura, le sue camminate e attivita' all'aperto, Possiamo aiutarvi ad organizare il vostro viaggio se avete piacere.
