  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 4: me Luana (44) my husband Ivan 49 and
    two children: Celeste 15 Edoardo 11.
    My husband and me work together, we're an accountancy firm and during the week we are busy at work but at the weekends we love spending free time all together doing activities such as cycling, trekking, tennis, surf...and if the weather is not good we love to try new dishes.
    We love listen to music, Celeste in particular is learning to play the guitar and she likes to play the songs she listens to.
    Edoardo plays basketball and loves skating and surfing with his father.
    In a single sentence what characterizes us is: curiosity and desire
    to open new horizons.
    I've studied English as a second language in Ottawa (Carleton University) , and i've been in Sheffield (UK) for a short working experience.

    If you would enjoy italian culture and to experience the local cuisine and lifestyle you're welcome.
    Our cuisine tends to be simple and delicious, relying on fresh, local produce. And Salento has lots of fantastic ingredients to choose from—like chickpeas, homegrown herbs and spices, olive and olive oil, tomatoes, and, of course, fresh seafood.
    Galatina is a city whose historic centre has remained almost entirely as it was over 250 years ago.There is some delightful architecture to see as the Romanesque-Gothic basilica of Santa Caterina d'Alessandria
    declared a national monument in 1870.
    Galatina is situated in a strategic position because it is equidistant from the sandy coasts on the Ionic sea and from the beautiful coves on the Adriatic Coast, where the deep blue sea and the white rocks create a unique color scheme.
    It is well served by public transport.
    It is 21.3 km from Lecce an amazing city full of baroque architecture,in fact is also known as “the Florence of South”, and is animated by lively social life and a vivacious student population, here to attend the homonymous University.
