  • Description


    We are a venetian family of five people. I’m an engineer and my wife is a gynaecologist. We have three children: one boy and two girls. Nicolò is 12 years hold, Anna and Ginevra have 10 and 8 years.

    Calvenzano is a small and quite village but is very close to Treviglio that is a nice city. Furthermore, Milan and Bergamo are just at 30 minutes from Treviglio by train.

    My children are at school from 8 or 8.30 up to 16.00. In the afterword they practice some sports (swimming, rugby and artistic gymnastics this year), play with friends or stay at home (for doing home works). In the evening we usually stay at home since the children go early to bed.

    During the weekend we often go to Venice (where me and my wife come from) or to Tregnago (Verona) where we have another house in the country side.
    During winter holiday we often go to Padola (Belluno) for skiing on the Dolomiti (Alps mountains).

    During summer we love to go for a journey for at least two weeks (this summer we have been to Bretagne and Normandy in France) and we go at the sea side in Caorle (a very nice fishermen village close to Venice).

    We love children and we decides to stop at three mainly for economic reasons. Our children often ask to have a new sister or brother. Therefore you will be the older sister for them and the forth children for me and my wife.
