  • Description


    We are a family of four peaple, a dog and a cat. Marco and Betty (47 years old) with our children Emil and Mio (16 and 12 years old). We are in an old mill on the river in Valmarecchia.
    We like to live in the countryside and in the summer we do all the jobs that we can not do in winter: work in the garden, arrange plants, trees, walls, the lawn, and many others.
    Together with other friends we are also working on a fantastic project, and for this we always have the need for help with various skills (video makers, aquarium experts, electronics, DIY, etc.).
    Our house is located in the hills a few minutes drive from small towns (but very beautiful) and 50 km from Rimini or the Republic of San Marino. There are also public transport (not many), however I work in Rimini and do the journey daily.
    We have created a small workshop where we realize many things we need, and I'm trying to pass on to my children my passion for self-construction (working wood, iron, electronics and more). We are not good in English (right now I'm using google translate :)) and we would like at least our children can learn it .... and maybe we too!

    Near us there are many paths for trekking, places and castles to visit, swimming pool, and further afield, Rimini with the sea, and amusement parks.

    *️*️*️The days we mark are only indicative, if you can also in other times of the year let's hear and see if we can meet*️*️*️
