Hey, I'm Alec!
Florence, Toscana, Italy · Member since April 2012

Italy... what an amazing place to live...

Head off in any direction an within a short time you'll wind up at the beach, or the mountains, Skiing, Snowboarding, trekking, a brilliant family restaurant, vineyards, farms, or any of the zillion and one interesting museums, churches of Florence, Pisa, Pistoia, Lucca, Viareggio.

I awake each morning to the clouds coming across the mountains, views of Florence, and oh yes, Leonardo Da Vinci's grandmother's house just out my window. Bacchereto, our little village is much like the one where I grew up in Bermuda... everybody is just so friendly, life is truly great here.

Come hang out in the garden, take a long walk through the hills, get in some great photography and relax with a bottle of wine from the vineyard next door!

A Late Summer update:
We've had an exceptionally HOT summer this year, it seemed to take forever and a day to get moving, but in the end Summer arrived with bells on. We've had a wonderful time meeting all sorts of lovely and interesting people from around the world, this is our second year with Airbnb and we're still in love with it! Our little worldwide family continues to grow. It's now finally cooling down and thoughts turn to training for this autumn, several good treks are in the works so I'll be hitting the hills and hopefully getting in some good shots. With all the rain we've had this spring the wine vendemia is about to get under way and we should have exceptionally good stuff this year. Autumn is around the bend and it's the best time of year to visit Tuscany. This year our area will be hosting the Cycling world Championships, should be great fun!

Here in the house, the toys are all behaving well, nice little tricks such as improved wireless, music all over, wireless printing! A proper little amp for jamming on the guitar. I've gotten a new guitar this past February for my birthday so will very happily lend the spare one to our musically inclined guests. We are constantly adding new toys and new touches. Now 8 months on I'm making real progress, barre chords finally working out, many thanks to our guitarist guests this summer for their support and continued encouragement. To those of you who have ever dreamed of playing an instrument, it's never too late, START!!

We look forward to meeting you!
