  • Francesco is a kind and generous host. His home is clean and comfortable, with a beautiful garden. Location is perfect - quiet, but just minutes away from the center of town and the river/countryside. Francesco lent me a bike for the duration of my stay, which was incredibly helpful, as well. This was the perfect arrangement for my stay in Wageningen - Thank you Francesco!

  • Francesco place is in a fantastic location if you want to get to know Wageningen. It is close enough to the center that no bike is needed (although he does have one you can borrow if you want to explore a little further) but it is nice an quite ensuring a good night sleep. Francesco was very good about my unexpected change in plans and helped me get to know the town better.

  • My stay at Wageningen was really great. The house is located quite close to the center of the town; Francesco was friendly and helpful and he provided me a bike to easily reach the campus in a few minutes. Recommended!

  • My stay at Francesco's place was really nice! I enjoyed my room, as well the rest of the house. It was warm and calm :) Two sweet cats were accompaning me during the day and welcoming when I was arriving home. The bicycle that Frenscesco offered me was really useful! I would reccomend Franscesco's house to everyone :)

  • It was a wonderful experience (and my first!) airbnb at Francesco's. He is very considerate, as well as the other guests (email hidden)e cats were adorable and although I am allergic to them, I didn't have issues at all. It felt like I was at home or at a friend's house that I know for a long time.

About
Hello! My name is Francesco Melita, I am a trainer and storyteller. I was born in Rome, Italy from a German mother and an Italian father. To make things even more complicated we moved to Holland when I was 13 years old. I studied in Holland agrarian sociology, married, got two beautiful daughters of 19 and 21 years old. My hobbies are: climbing, mountainbiking, karate and I keep trying to pick up meditation but my restless nature keeps me from sticking to it. I enjoy cooking Italian dinners, have a lot of friends come over and talk about god and the world. I believe humour is the salt that gives taste to our life and compassion and being there for each other is the actual dinner.
