    Description

    No more availability for this year.
    You have to speak a bit Italian .

    We live in a house near Mergozzo Lake. The name of village is Mergozzo too. We are a couple about 50 years old. We both work at home. I work for a corporation in Milan , my husband is a painter.

    I like learning languages but I never use it because I'm shy and I hate the idea of ​​stuttering and making mistakes. I think meeting new people will be a good way of improve my English and to take a virtual journey and learn about other cultures.

    Having spent his childhood in the countryside, Mauro knows how to chop wood and tidy the garden. He likes outdoors works, hiking, running and swimming.

    We dance salsa and I enjoy traditional afro-brazilian dance too

    We have two jung cats and recently a horse comes in our family .

    If you love quiet places and nature this place is for you.
    In summer there are a lot of events in zone and it's easy meet new people.

    We live between lakes and mountains, but you can go to Milan by train in one hour.
    My husband is a good painter. He paints with a style that we can define as impressionist.
    It is a perfect place for those who love meditation.

    Mergozzo Lake is one of the cleanest lakes in Italy, since many years ago the use of engine boats was forbidden. It's waters are considered a paradise for practising water sports

    Mergozzo Lake

    The Largest Wilderness Area in Italy
    Val Grande: the largest wilderness area in Italy, but also an outdoor museum of the ancient civilization of the Alps. The abandonment of the alpine summer pastures and of the deforestation practice led to the return to wilderness: nature becomes the master. The richness and variety of the vegetation represent one of the greatest attractions of the area, with impenetrable woods and a "very colored" flora. A Park with many secrets: timid animals, steep deep valleys, crystal-clear waters in gorges protected by overhanging walls, and charming views, from Mt. Rosa to Lago Maggiore

    Healing Meditation Centre
    is located near Bée in the province of Verbania on Lake Maggiore. Overlooking the suggestive panorama of the lake, Albagnano is immersed in pine and chestnut woods at an altitude of 600 metres on the edge of the Val Grande national park.
