About the Host, Athena
I am a San Francisco girl now living in Tuscany with my husband and two daughters. I am a professional Irish fiddler and my husband is a wine maker. I grew up in this house in San Francisco with my 3 brothers as did my father before me. My grandmother designed the house and had it built in the '30's, so I'm very attached to the property and have decided to rent it to short term guests and vacationers only so it can be available for my own family when I visit my family in San Francisco.
I am a true California girl, I love the outdoors, walking, sports, and healthy living, but I also love curling up in front of the fire or the flatscreen with a glass of great wine! I'm also kind of a Mac computer nerd so wi-fi is a must... I've grown up in these SF hills and have gotten so used to the fabulous views, I couldn't live in any other neighborhood and now that I have kids, I appreciate the cool parks close by even more.
