  • Description


    Hello, We are Cristina (28) and Bernardo (30) with a cute 6 month baby, Beniamino. We live in the beautiful Florence Countryside, around 20 min from the city and just 5 min. from the nearest village(Compiobbi). We are a very tipical,
    outgoing family. We love have people around and share experiences and knowledge.We have 2 cats, ( but will be 3 soon with the new neiggbour) few cickens and a big huge vegetable garden. We live in a very big old house, in a friendly situation( many other guys live close to us and we share the garden with them). We really like to spend time in the house ( mostly cooking:we usually make home made pasta, pizza, gnocchi, bread) and in the garden doing loads of things ( cutting trees and garden, cutting woods, preparing the soil for seedling, boulding stuffs, renovate chickens house eccecc...).
