About the Host, Marilena
Amo stare a contatto con la gente, conoscere realtà diverse dalla mia. Ospitare mi offre la possibilità di incontrare culture diverse anche stando nel mio paese in campagna: tutto questo può avvenire grazie alle storie che ogni mio ospite porta con se e condivide con me durante il soggiorno!
Sono appassionata di cucina e mi piace preparare per i miei ospiti piatti prelibati fatti con amore e con i prodotti biologici del mio orto. E anche dietro ogni ricetta c'è una storia da raccontare, da condividere!
I love to stay in contact with people, to know the reality diverse from mine. Hosting gives me the opportunity to meet different cultures even while I'm in my countryside village: this may be due to the stories that my guest brings with them and shares with me during their stay!
I'm passionate about cooking and I like to prepare for my guests delicious dishes made with love and organic products from my garden. And behind each recipe there is a story to tell, to share!
