Hi I am Lia and my husband is Joaquim. I am a primary school teacher originally from Cork Ireland. We live in west London with our three children aged 9,7 and 4. We have been hosting since April 2012 our first guest was an Olympic athlete and her family. Since then we have had many amazing guests bringing the world to our door.
Both Joaquim and I speak Italian as we both met there and lived in Tuscany for some years. We enjoy the simple pleasures in life mainly cooking, and good company.
We feel that we could offer a sanctuary for those staying in London a very warm home away from home for your stay.
If needed we would be happy to provide personal recommendations of the local area or wider London sights.
