  • Description


    Hey to everyone!!!

    Most of the facts in this playful historical fake are true, to conceive the concept of our place

    A joyful vacation home that wants to entertain through the vision from the deepness of the ocean. The bright rays of light get into the cabins of the stranded vessel to focus on this fantastic adventure.

    To ride the wave of the moment is the rallying call of this institution wanting to emphasize the historic tradition of welcoming tourists in Viareggio with a cosmopolitan flair that wants to give to all of Versilia the renown fascination. Stimulating seduction for creating the new attraction of pleasing our guests.

    We are looking for a couple or an individual that wants to help Francesco in his project.
    From helping to prepare breakfast in the morning to welcome guests.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I have a huge network of friends and working with me it will mean be part of a family.
    If there will be a project or a party you will be part of it.
    If you have any skills or interest in arts and design I can help to be involved in some connection for future jobs.
    I love the arts in general and in particular design and architecture.
    Pietrasanta a town nearby Viareggio, only 20 minutes by car and 7 by train is called "the little Athene", is it full of laboratories of studios of marble and bronze.
    All the most contemporary artists are coming every since before in Pietrasanta for doing them artistic works.
    Damien Hirst, Botero, Kan Yasuda are some of them and Botero lives here six months every year.
    My sister has a restaurant there and she organizes cooking classes and you, Workawayer, could enjoy the lessons.
    I know very well Florence which is only 1 hour far by train.
    I grow-up in Florence and so I can be an amazing guide for you.
    I can teach Italian as much I can and even work in a hotel is very useful on any C.V. .
    I'm a very social person and I love help people and live close to me it means learning lots of thing from history to kitchen or lifestyle in general.
    It's very hard to fill this part of this form, I should write for an hour.

    This place is very special thanks to my best friend Stephan Hamel which is the brand catalyst of many brands of design and the creator of this place.
    The idea was a vessel sink in the ocean with onboard 2 little future queens, so the entire hotel is deep blue or green like the color of the see.
    All the details speak about the sea and the world of sailing.
    We are a house for crew so during the winter time, lots of yachties are coming here to spend a few weeks waiting for the finish of the refitting of the boat.
    I help people to go through the yachting world with the first position onboard.

    I told you, it's very long the list of what a Workawayer can have like benefit from a cultural exchange being with me.

    I hope that can be enough.
    Cheers mate!!!
