  • Description

    I am Stella, an Italian mum aged 40 and I will travel with my son.
    We live in the countryside right in the heart of the Appennines, surrounded by woods and small villages, only half an hour from Florence, in Tuscany.

    Me, I have been working for almost twenty years in tourism field such as business travel agent, airports attendant and car rental agent.

    I love to travel and I had the chance to visit many Countries both for work and leisure (started when I was 6 and never stopped).

    I am a very dynamic person who always try to improve and learn new things.
    I have a very good ability with computer stuff (including websites, graphics, SEO) but I am also nice with manual tasks like DIY, painting, fixing or building small objects, use drill and work tools, cooking, cleaning and driving (motorbikes too).
    I know about gardening, growing vegetables and animal care. I any case I will offer my enthusiasm and cooperation.

    Gabriele is nearly 10 years old and is going to attends the last year at primary school.
    He is a very friendly, sociable and smiling young guy, absolutely openminded and easygoing.
    He loves to meet new people, cultures and different ways of life and he is often full of questions.
    He is a really interested child who likes socialize and spend time freedom in the nature. Reliable and good helper too, if needed.

    I speak Italian (mother tongue), English (almost fluent), French and German and Spanish(beginner).
    Gabriele only speaks Italian and he has a a very very basic English knowledge.

    Our willing would be to improve our language skills, especially practice English as much as possible. We would be also very happy to share our Italian if you like.

    We really appreciate to spend time outdoor, having walks in the nature or a bycicle ride around.

    We both love animals and we are used to take care of them.

    Love cooking and try new dishes and recepies - it would be woderful to spare my cuisine with yours!

    Looking forward to hearing from you :)
