Alessandro e Piera, sposati dal 1993 ed hanno 2 figlie.
A loro piace vivere vicino alla natura, e grazie all'amore per la natura, hanno comprato una piccola casa in zona Parco dell'Etna, del fianco Sud, dove comincia la zona boschiva del vulcano.
Essi hanno mentalità aperte e piace conoscere nuove persone di tutte le nazionalità, stando a contatto con abitudini e culture diverse, arricchendo così il loro bagaglio culturale; sono stati sempre proiettati in una dimensione internazionale, lontano dalle chiusure provinciali.
Avendo conosciuto Airbnb, vorrebbero condividere e far conoscere le bellezze della Sicilia.
A loro piace il cibo mediterraneo e conversare davanti ad un buon bicchiere di vino rosso e camino acceso.
Alessandro parla e scrive un buon livello di inglese. Al contrario, Piera lo è con il francese.
Per motivi di privacy, hanno deciso di non essere presenti in alcun 'social'.
Desiderosi ed impazienti di ricevere gli ospiti Airbnb!
