  • Description


    Hi, I'm Lucia (44) and my husband Is Agostino (45). He's an engeneer and I am a Science teacher; we have 4 children and we love to support them in their first steps: they're Andrea (almost 10), Alessandro (8), Alice (6) and Arianna (5). We're a happy and hospitable family, we often have friends for dinner and I love cooking (delicious risotto and Amazing pizza provided!). We like to go on trip visiting the most suggestive places of our region (you can join us of you want) and we all love music, Agostino plays guitar and piano and he sings in a rock band. We don't have television by choice: we use to spend free time Reading (our children really love books and comics), walking or cycling in the countryside, gardening, swimming in our pool in Summer. We live in the centre of Mestrino (PD), a Town in the middle of Veneto, in a villa with garden and swimming pool, and our pets are 5 turtles; we're going to adopt a kitten this summer but It Will live in our garden. In front of our home there's a public park and beside there is another one with volleyball field, basketball court, Gym equipment and bar that organizes many events in summer such as live music, cocktail party, games and the Fairy festival in july. We can lend a bike.

    Mestrino Is conveniently located in the North East of Italy. Venice, Milan, Treviso and Garda lake (with Amazing amusement parks such as Gardaland) can be easily reached by train (railway station can be reached in 15 Min by bike). The bus stop Is 600 m far and the bus brings you to Padua (10 km), Vicenza (20 km), Euganean SPAs (9 km) and the seaside (50 km). In our home you can taste typical italian homemade food and breath the loving atmosphere of an italian family.
    You can also practice italian language if you want and join us in our frequent trips all over the region (seaside, Mountain, museum, zoo, Summer festivals...) If you agree.
