  • Beschreibung


    Hi, my name is Federica, I grew up in Rome, in 2011 I left a good job and decided to move to live in the countryside, in Tuscany. I enjoy gardening, water sports, open air activities in general as I love nature. I made the garden and choose all plants trying to pick amongst those that would grow in the Mediterranean climate, I also host the bees of a young couple who lives nearby and produces honey. The plants I add every year with the help of the bees are a wonderful sinergy. Italian is my mother language but I speak English, Frech, Spanish and a bit of Portuguese. I also have a passion for crochet and created my own small brand. Even if I am an extroverted person, I love the peace of the surroundings of my house. I don't smoke, I don't want to seem rude but smokers can be accepted only if they smoke outside the house and don't smell too much.
    Many people get surprised by the fact I am not vegetarian (not vegan), luckily in the coutryside it is possble to make a selection of good food, I don't like waste, therefore I am againt intensive farming as much as intensive cultivations.
    Without exceeding I fully agree with the localization principle of life "think global and act local".

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    I travelled a lot, experienced diferent working activities, I have a passion for gardening and nature that I love sharing.
    I also love crochet and have a small hand-made production. I think that craftmanship tells a lot of traditions and local cultures as hand made items are unique. I also love water sports and teach SUP, if there are nice waves around I am happy to take some time and go surfing

    The location is in the coutryside, there is a but that stops about 800 meters from the property that goes to Livorno. The city lies some 15 kms from here. When I have people visiting I also enjoy showing the area, the coast around Livborno is beautiful, there are several nice villages nearby as well as beautiful cities (Pisa, Lucca, Volterra, etc). As I live near "Colline Livornesi" (Livorno's hills) it is possible to enjoy beautiful hikes near the property.

    I do have a mid size female dog who's very old, 19,5 years, therefore fragile. A dog might be considered but only at certain conditions (if you have a dog let's talk about it).
