  • Description


    Hi, I'm Laura, I'm 20 years old and I'm an Italian student. I'm attending the language university in Florence.
    I love painting, my grand dad teaches me to paint because he's a real painter. I teaches to kids during my free time.
    I love travelling, visiting museums, going to the sea, walking, running, taking photos, reading and writing. I really love cooking, in particular cakes, instead my brother cooks all the possible types of pasta, he's very very good. We are a family that likes eating, cooking the italian recipes and talking a lot.
    I live very near from Pisa, in a little country town, with my family that is composed by my brother, Giovanni 26 years old, drummer and menager of a music school in Pisa; my mum, Cecilia 51 years old, teacher for kids; my dad, Tiziano 66 years old, he's retired but he helps my brother at his music school, he takes care of the garden and of the house while we are at work. I have a beautiful dog, It's Berta, It's a female dog. We are an happy and easygoing family.
    If you love beautiful landscape, nature, peace, relax ... this is the perfect place for you. It is a town surrounded by greenery and peace, but at the same time it is very near from the city and from the chaos.
    I drive, so we can go where you want.
    we would be happy to let you join our family.
    Please if you have any type of doubt, contact us.
