  • Description


    Hi there!

    We are a family of 4 people, my husband Fernando, his son, me Lia and a baby named Dora. She is a calm and quiet little girl who needs attention and love.

    We have a big house with a swimming pool, a lake and a lot of space to relax and be in peace with the nature. Next to the house we have a cultural space where we have dance, circus... classes and other interesting things.

    Since our house is so big we rent some rooms and we receive people from all around the world. So, we love meeting people, exchanging cultural views, dancing, etc.
