  • Description

    Description

    I currently live with my parents in a big house in the historical city center in Massa (MS), Tuscany (Italy).
    I have two childred of 12 and 8 years old (one male and one female).

    The house is structured on 3 levels plus one underground level that is used as cellar (in Total 4 levels).
    Un the upper level a big terrace is available with a nice view on the mountains.

    Massa is located in the middle of Tuscany and you can easily reach a lot of famous historical cities including Florence, Pisa, Lucca and also many other less famous medieval villages.
    Moreover seaside is only 4 km far and also the VIP city Forte dei Marmi is 30 minutes far.
    If you are interested in walking an mountains Massa is really near to Apuane Alps where the white Carrara marble is extracted (several mines can also be visited) and also one of the most famous italian cave is there (Antro del Corchia).

    Last but not least: the food is incredibly good in this area!!!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Obviously it will be a great chance to improve italian language skills. Then if interested in Architecture and art, the area is plenty of verynice places to visit.

    We like to cook for our family and we are quite professional on that, so if requested, we can teach our italian kitchen secrets to our guest :)

    I currently run a shop and the main activity is about graphics and printing on a large amount of different materials. We have several different machines and devices for that and if requested we can teach how to use them effectively.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Massa have a train station and bicicle can be easily used (also private car and moto/moped wuold be a good option).
    We have public transports, the number of passages during the day is not very high, but considering the city is quite small they can be easily used as well.

    As mentioned before Massa is in Tuscany, so _hundreds_ of very nice places are asily reachable via tran or car.

    Massa is located in the middle of Tuscany and you can easily reach a lot of famous historical cities including Florence, Pisa, Lucca and also many other less famous medieval villages.
    Moreover seaside is only 4 km far and also the VIP city Forte dei Marmi is 30 minutes far.
