We are a family of four: daddy Enrico, mummy Barbara, Matteo 9 and Emma (will turn 6 in July). We love long walks and hiking in our mountains .
We live in Borriana, a small but lively village lying by the beautiful Serra Hills, between Turin and Milan in Northern Italy. It is a very good place to stay if you love hiking, running or cycling or if you simply enjoy long walks, but we are a few minutes by car from the main town Biella, where you can find main facilities. You can use our bycicle while you are here :)
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We believe that staying in our family will be a great opportunity for you to experience italian hospitality, traditions and food. If you are interested to cycling , skying, hiking or simply walking or running our area is just the right place for you...Borriana lies in the countryside but in 10 minutes by car you can be in the mountains..
We are focused on improving our children's knowledge of English. I've been speaking English to them from their birth and they can understand it at a good level, but they hardly speak in their second language. We would like a native English speaker that could play and communicate with them using English exclusively.

We are very close to Val d'Aosta and Mount Blanche and Mount Rose.Those who are interested to history will love visiting the Ricetto di Candelo, a very well preserved medieval hamlet and the mining archeological sites in Valsessera. All these sites can be reached by coach and we will be more than happy to help you to find the best connections.
