  • Description


    We are a dynamic and solar family of four: me, Arianna (37 years), my husband Marco (42 years) and our 2 children Marta and Andrea.
    We are open-minded, friendly and welcoming. We love to spend time with friends and I love cooking so we usually share convivial moments with them, we often organize dinners with them at home or in the garden.
    We spend a lot of time outside and many of our activities are for children.
    Marco is South Europe sales and marketing manager for an American Company, instead I am office assistant in a law firm. Marco travels frequently for work,sometimes during the day and sometimes some days. When he isn't around, he works at home.
    Marta is 10 years old, she is a sweet and shy girl, but when she knows someone well, she never stops speaking and laughing. She loves painting, hand crafting and drawing.
    Andrea is 6 years old and he is an adorable little blue eyes rascal but he is very very funny, independent and tender. He is a typical little boy and he loves towers, bulldozers, construction, trains, balls… We have yard so very often they play outside with bike, skates and balls.

    We live close to Bologna, a vibrant university city in the north of Italy. Our house is in a very green area with a lot of parks but in 10 minutes riding the train you can enjoy the historic center and the many attractions. The bus and train station are a walking distance from us. We have free wi-fi 24h/24h.

    We will very joyful to make you feel happy and a part of our family and culture, we are sure that it will be a wonderful opportunity for growth for us and for you too!
