More about your Host Family at La Villa con gli Archi
We saw this country house about thirty years ago and we immediately fell in love with it. We lived in Florence and this would become the home for our family. Along renovation brought the villa back to life as we can live and appreciate it today. Life then took us elsewhere, but over the years the villa with the Arches has always remained "our home of the heart", where we spend the moments of rest and vacation and with great pleasure, we share it with the guests we welcome as our friends. This is our family: Raffaello, engineer and passionate cook, Rosangela, psychiatrist and lover of the spirit of this land, with his daughter Sara, a student in tourism, vegetarian and animal science. And then our Zen animals, 5-year-old black Labrador and two cats living with us in Lucca.
