    We're not smokers.
    We live in Florence near the city center (you can reach it by walking, cycling or by bus). We live in a little building sorrounded by the Trees. Near to us there's a big public park along the river and there, you can make many activities, like jogging, walks, or just relax. I
    f you prefer art and culture you can visit the city center or the other Tuscany town, but if you prefer the nature we're very near to the "Chianti" colins.
    If you want, you can catch the opportunity, to visit Italy with us, because we use to visit different part, cities and countries, in Italy, especially in the week end.
    We also love to cook, so you can learn Spanish and Italian dishes. Many times we prepare Napolitan pizza in our oven and we fun add our own ingredients.
