  • Description


    There is much to explore in this area which is rich in history and culture. You can go inland to beautiful hilltop villages. The transport system is cheap and available regularly. I spend my time between the boat and my house which is in Soliera (Apuana).
    Please don't apply if you are an eco-warrior who wants to save the planet or the universe and if you get the urge to hug trees or speak to plants then probably, I am not for you. Non-smoking, alcohol free, vegans are also probably better with another host.
