    Description

    Hello my name is Cecilia, I am freelance my husband is a teacher.
    We live in a historic house of great charm dating back to 1700 in Tuscany.
    Our project is to complete the renovation of the house, restore the furniture, move the furniture, tidy up the gardens with grass cutting and pruning.
    The house is located in the green surrounded by an olive grove and the forest; there are many birds and flowers.
    The house is located mt.500 from the city center and close to the train station. The sea is 7 km away.
    If you are interested in learning about the Italian language and culture I can help you with lessons, conversations and advice.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The place is very quiet, is located between Liguria and Tuscany so you can easily visit the tourist sites of Tuscany such as Pisa, Lucca, Florence, Siena and Liguria as the Gulf of Poets, the Cinque Terre, Genoa.
    Near the house there is a bus station and the train station is 4 km away.
    We have mountains where you can go hiking for all levels.
    In 5 minutes walking you can reach the city center, where there are monuments, the Academy of Fine Arts, the swimming pool and gyms. The sea and the beach are just 7 km away.
    In the garden you can run, walk, practice sports, yoga or meditation and there are benches in which to read or rest.
    At home you can consult a large library of books in Italian and many books talk about painting and sculpture and have many images.

    Accommodation

    you can have your own bedroom and share the bathroom and kitchen.
    you will cook your meals independently, I have experienced that this makes you freer in your times and needs (vegans, vegetarians, etc.). we agree on a weekly sum for the purchase of your food independently.
    Every now and then we organize a dinner together
