.Sono una giornalista televisiva Rai in pensione. Mio marito, Nino, è un ingegnere navale, pensionato anche lui. Viviamo in questo magnifico posto da una decina di anni. La nostra casa, un antico fienile ristruttrurato , è abbastanza grande. Ne abbiamo ricavato due piccoli appartamenti per ospiti.Desideriamo condividere le bellezze della campagna toscana con chi vuole conoscerla. E ci piace incontrare persone da tutto il mondo, che portano il mondo in casa nostra. Ci piace la vita semplice,a contatto con la natura. E abbiamo otto grandi amori: i nostri nipotini.
Il mio motto? Una frase di Herman Hesse, che ho trovato nel romanzo "I sonnambuli" ( qualcuno lo conosce?) La frase è "Ciascuno deve adempiere il suo sogno, malvagio e santo insieme. O non sarà partecipe della libertà" Mi ha guidata nelle scelte della mia vita.
Se venite a trovarci..... siamo qui
