    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Aloha to all the travelers that have something to bring, be it experience, a story, a skill, or something we never heard of.
    Every traveler can expect nothing less than to be treated as part of the family.
    Enjoy the Italian lifestyle with a sparkle of multiculturalism. Yep, We are a multicultural family with three different citizenships, that recently moved into a vintage villa built in the 70ies, in the countryside 5 minutes by car from the beach.

    About us:
    dad Luca is Italian and works in Rome
    mom Dobrila is Serbian and works remotely from home
    little Sofia (2yo) is American and she is seeking for fun&adventures (sea, lakes, river, hiking, drawing, learning, playing, singing, etc).

    We just got back from the States and recently moved in. We are renovating one piece at a time.
    So if you like manual work there will be furniture to paint, wood to work, bikes for decoupage, and obviously flowerbeds and vegetable garden to plant

    Also, we like outdoor activities and traveling. FYI Sofia had already visited 11 countries when she was just 11 months old.

    If you got to this point, please start your first message with "ALOHA", so we know you read this description, activities and rules 😊
