About the Host, Andrea
Having lived in Italy for 12 years, I still have a strong connection to Italian food,
culture and the people. Enzo, my partner, is an interpreter/translator in Italian and I ran an Italian bookshop for 15 years. Currently we are building a weekender in the country and loving the challenges of re-purposing old materials and learning new skills. We both enjoy travelling and discovering new places, but especially enjoy time with our beautiful 3 grandchildren in Australia. Our experiences as Airbnb hosts has enriched our lives by meeting new people from a great variety of local and overseas places.
