We are a nice and young family of 4 people, simple and friendly, living in the countryside close to the medieval town of Bassano del Grappa, in Veneto region (North East of Italy). We are close to Venice, Verona, Vicenza and Padua (more or less 30 minutes-1 hour).
We (Viviana and Stefano) have both a high level culture and we travelled a lot before children; so we are open minded and very curious to know new people and discover new things. We both speak English and Spanish.
We love enjoying life at the fullest, we are very careful about healthy food (almost vegetarian but not rigid) and we are a very active family, loving running, walking in the mountain and travelling.
We have two children: Cesare who is 9 years old and Cecilia who is 7 years old, two funny and bright guys!!!
People generally love to spend time with us and we love to have guests coming to have a coffee, for dinner or simply to spend few time together.
We have a very intense life, full of sports and activities...even if, when possible, we also love to spend time at home all together.
We live in our own house in Rossano Veneto but we have an house also in the Dolomites, in a nice village close to the mountain and time to time we go there to do trekking.
Don't miss the opportunity to live in a true Italian family...we will be happy to teach you some Italian, to introduce to you our town and the beautiful surrounding towns of Veneto or simply to help you organising a jouney.
