we are a cosmopolitan couple Ecuador-Italian, we like quite and slowly travel ( not safary or climbing Everest) in friendly country (where they speak our languages: Italian, Spanish, French, English and some Portuguese). In 1999 I open my Guesthouse in my family XVI century villa on the hills between Tuscany and Cinque Terre.
We own also two apartments in Monterosso al Mare (Cinque Terre), but we rent only one.
My guests usually like a lot stay in my accommodation as you can read in my Villa DUCCI ' s guestbook or on TripAdvisor. I am a very polite guest as I have a large experience what can make upset a host.
My 5 favourite thinks are: 1) snorkelling - swimming - hiking in Cinque Terre; 2) take care of Oliva trees; 3) discuss with my guests about italian and foreign countries; 4) eat ice-cream (mainly homemade ); 5) slow, quite, lazy travelling.
One of my mottos: si vales bene est ego valeo : If you're fine, that's well, I am fine too.
