  • Description


    We are a typical italian family of four. The parents (Daddy 48 years & Mummy 46 years old) and two little girls (Chiara 9 and Camilla 4 years old). We are very easy going people who like meeting other people and to get to know their culture.
    We live in Florence where we run an Hotel and an ice cream shop. My husband makes the ice cream and I help in the shop too. We are very busy but we enjoy our jobs.
    We are trying to bring our daughters bilingual. We wish for them to learn English now rather than when they are old.
