  • Description

    Description

    We are an easy-going couple, Giada and Federico, with a 8 years old daughter, Alice, and a 18 years old son, Eric, normally living in France with his mum and regularly visiting us to spend time together. We have lived and worked in many different countries and we like to meet people and getting to know new cultures. We do like our own spaces as well and therefore we respect other people’s ones.
    Federico is a sailing instructor and having worked in France for 10 year, he speaks excellent French. I have lived in Australia for one year, when I was 16, so I speak good English. I am a marine biologist and have worked as scuba diver, skipper, biologist for the Aquarium of Genoa and teacher for children with family or health problems.
    We have quite a dynamic life and we might change plans on the way.

    Help

    Because of Federico’s job, I’m often by myself so I sometimes need some help with Alice, to go and pick her up from school or in case of meeting at work or sudden commitments.
    We have a small and sweet female dog, Lolita, so we ask our guest to take her out, once a day in the morning.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in La Spezia, a town on the sea in the Nord of Italy, very close to many interesting cities and cultural spots (eg. 5 Terre, Genoa, Pisa, Florence). We also regularly go to Porto Ercole, a cute village on the sea in Tuscany, where Federico runs his sailing school.
    We live 10 minutes from the city center and the apartment is at the 10th floor, with a beautiful view on a big public park and the sea. It is easily accessible by transport and not far from the station.
    If you love sports, the sea and a worm family...we could be the right choice for you.
