    Description

    We are a family that lives with our four children in a beautiful country, 20 minutes from Lucca and 20 minutes from Viareggio and Camaiore.
    The place is nice and is quite near to the sea (20km) and to the mountains.
    It's a perfect place for hiking, have a walk, running and riding a mountain bike.
    One minute from our house you can rent and ride a horse.
    My children are 14, 12, 8, 4 years old.
    My wife is a teacher and i am a psychologist.
    With us live one cat, two dogs and some chickens.
    We are very easy going person and we want just live in peace.
    We love meet other person and different culture, we have not television and many books.
    We are not vegetarian but we don't eat meet or fish very often, we don't smoke and we prefer to host people that don't smoke.
    This place is ideal for couple and person that are comfortable with their own.
    When is possible we prefer a minimum stay of two weeks and we prefer people that stay longer.
    We love animals and humans : )
    We usually wake up early in the morning and go to bed early, especially in winter.
