Hi, I'm Francesca, I live in a little village in Salento, 9 km far from the Ionian sea. I live with my mum, Rosanna, and a crazy funny Jack Russel. Just next to our house there's my brother with his family (2 children, 9 and 11 y.o.). We are a big family, all my relatives live close to me and they do many activities you might like. I would like to improve my English, so I would prefer English-speaking workwayers. I've worked as a receptionist in a resort from 2013 to 2018, I work as an english teacher in secondary schools and I give private English lessons as well.

Spending time with us will be a great experience. My mum is a tailor and can teach sewing and embroidering, she’s also good at cooking local and Italian dishes. We’ve got an allotment with olive trees and other plants, my relatives are farmers and you can experience olives, grapes and other vegetables harvesting if you like. I have a lot of friends, I love nature, going hiking, kayaking, doing T’ai Ji and spending time outdoors

Salento is a wonderful land where you can relax, have fun, meet lovely people and enjoy nature and special traditions. There are beautiful beaches and a crystal sea just 10 minutes far from our place. If you prefer cliffs, you can get there in 20 minutes. You can get to the station in 20 minutes on foot. Gallipoli, Otranto and Lecce are just three of many wonderful places you can visit here; just google "Salento" to have an idea about it.
