  • Description


    My name is Marina, I live in Lucca, a little town in Tuscany, Italy, in a big house with my two daughters, two dogs and two cats. We are a very open-minded and welcoming family, we try to speak English as good as we can. We already hosted two girls from England for a long period and many travellers for short periods. Our dogs and cats are very friendly and like to be around people, so if you don't like to have pets and pet-hair around, please choose another place.
    We ask good speaking and comprehension of English or Italian, and some experience with houseworks and gardening.
    If you come with a flight you can get to Lucca from Pisa airport by train.
    In our house peaple are not allowed to smoke; if you want to smoke, you can do it in the garden but please don't leave cigarette butts around.
