About our home
A hundred years old house of stone and wood with a big garden, it has three floors, my brother and my sister live in the first and second floor with their families and we live in the third, so there will be always someone if you need help or if you want to ask something.
We have a double bedroon, a living room, a bathroom, a spacious kitchen and a terrace, perfect for a couple.
It is a quiet zone of the city. It is very close to the beach and the city center, 10 minutes walking or 4 minutes if you go by bus or bicycle. The bus stops are very close to our house. We usually move through the city by bike or walking.
