Mi chiamo Giuse e vivo a Villa Spigby con mio marito Ilario e il gatto Orazio. A causa del mio lavoro come Export Manager, per moltissimi anni ho girato per gli aeroporti, alberghi, pensioni, locande, alcuni erano molto belli altri un po’ meno, altri ancora decisamente indecenti, tutti comunque freddi e anonimi, da fare venir tristezza e voglia di tornare a casa! Poi i figli sono cresciuti e hanno lasciato questa casa per fare la loro vita e sono andata in pensione e.....mi sono trovata in uno spazio grande e vuoto. Da qui l’idea di usarne una parte per gli ospiti, per continuare ad incontrare persone e (ammetto!) per coprire un pò i costi di gestione e manutenzione di una casa così impegnativa. Le camere a disposizione sono due, non sono state fatte apposta per questa attività, sono state progettate per i miei figli e sono rimaste le stesse. Quindi non sono fredde stanze dove dormire ma ambienti confortevoli dove soggiornare dopo un viaggio di lavoro, dopo una lunga e impegnativa riunione, dopo un estenuante giorno di fiera, oppure dopo una visita turistica stancante, dopo un intero giorno in mezzo alla ressa.
