  • Description


    In our family we are four peaple: Simone, Elisa, Rachele and Celeste.
    We are a very active family: we love nature, rock climbing, mountain hiking, skiing, swimming in the sea and above all this we love cycling. We explored lots of countries with our bikes, since the girls were very young!
    Simone is 47 and he is an employed, Elisa is 45 and is a psycologist. Rachele and Celeste, are 14 and 11 years old, they speak English quite well, Rachele is also learning Spanish and Celeste is learning French.
    Rachele loves animals, especially our cat Lullaby. She plays the eletric guitar and she loves horse riding more than everything. She's into music, especially heavy metal and punk. She also loves ski mountaineering and writing stories.
    Celeste is into dance and teathre and she is learning to play the violin. She likes to read books and comics (especially "Peanuts"). She also likes to play with Rachele and she rides horses with her sometimes.
    We also have two cats: Sunny (the brother) and Lullaby (the sister), they are cute and fluffy and they love to sleep.
    We alredy hosted some volunteers during the past summers. We had always very good experiences: we knew new people and their culture and most of the volunteer became part of the family and remained friends. Some of them still come to visit us on their holiday!
    The volunteer usually stays with Rachele and Celeste from 8.00 am to 1.00 pm. They practise some english together, they go for some walks around our village or to the beach. Rachele and Celeste also like to make the volunteers explore the most beautiful places in our area, visit museums or citys, or go to the farm where they ride horses.
    The volunteers have also free time to spend on their own to visit others incredible places in the area!
    We hope you will be intrested to come! xx
