We are an italian-german family. Benedetta is italian, Christof is german, Jakob and Anton, are 14 and 11 years old respectively. We live usually in Brussel, Benedetta is a paediatrician, Jakob and Anton attend the European School. We would like to be a multicultural, open and curious family. Jakob and Anton are lively boys, they love sports and play in a theater They like meeting new people and play and learn from them. Jakob speaks fluently four languages including english. Anton speaks three langauges, he has just started to learn english at school and is still a real beginner. During summer Jakob and Anton are used to spent one month at Benedetta’s family holiday house in Camaiore, in tuscany. It is the grandmother’s house and they enjoy the swimming pool, the friends, the big park, the ping pong and the granny’s tuscan food and sens of humour. It is a relaxing and recharging time. Klara, the sweet 3 years old Boston Terrier enjoys also la dolce vita. Benedetta and Christof still at work usually join the family later on. Camaiore is a lovely and typical tuscan town close to the Apuan Alpes and few km away from the Versilia sea. A lot of activities are possible: swimming at the sea or river, surfing, climbing, enjoying tuscan food. Lucca and Pisa are reachable in half an hour by car.
