I live alone in a very quiet village located in the sweet hills at 20 km from Asti in the north of Italy. My second daughter with her husband, who live at only 1,5 km from my house, run a farm which produces mostly organic wine. I’m from Argentina so my mother tongue is Spanish. I also speak Italian and a little bit of English. I love to travel as well as to share time with new friends and know different cultures by hosting foreign people. I have a cat. Nature is wild here, the right place to rest far away from the urban chaos.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Beside the mutual exchange of knowledge on the following languages: Italian, Spanish and English; we can exchange awareness and recipes about the cuisine of our own country. For those who like to experience contact with nature while walking, I can show the many nice paths, short or long ones, into the wooden or among the cultivated fields that are available just around here.
We can also exchange knowledge and recipes about the cuisine of our own country.
Traveller can help me with the garden works like to cut the grass, clean the flower beds, collect the fruits at harvest time. I also appreciate help in keeping up the house too. I look for English 's conversation to improve it. And offer conversation in Spanish and Italian for who would be interested in learning them.
Italian, Spanish, English
I have a single/double bedroom situated in the house; you will have a small wardrobe for your clothes. Bathroom will be shared with me.
I love to share meals and encourage people to cook their own recipes too.
I use to bake bread. I eat healthy and genuine products, many vegetables, little meat, fish time to time. Cheese and a glass of wine is also present on my table.
There are no shops or Bars in my village. The nearest Bar is located at 1,5 km, just a few minutes by car or around 15/20 minutes by walking. There are also a small grocery, a post office and a pharmacy.
Asti is 18 km away. You can go there by public transport; a bus stops here two to three times a day and arrive to Asti train station. Ticket costs € 2.30 one-way.
From here you can visit Torino, Milano or Genova in the day. There are a lot of beautiful natural places to visit and ancient churches or towns.
