I'm an opera/chamber music singer wishing to come to San Francisco in seek of work. I have both Italian and American citizenship, and I'm looking for a place to stay in San Francisco/Bay Area for a few months while I find a job and an apartment (witch I'm searching with an Italian friend who is already working and living there, in a shared apartment). If possible, I'd like to come with my two middle aged, sterilized and extremely educated cats (has you can see looking at my white sofa, with no scratches). Not negotiable, thought, is the possibility to study/sing a maximum of 2h a day in the house, being a singer. Apart music, I love cooking, traveling, photography, and many other things.
My house is 15 min, by car, from downtown Pisa, in the bucolic and picturesque hillside village of Calci. The neighborhood is great, quiet but not too isolated, with lots of olive trees and can be a perfect starting point to visit every single city and town of Tuscany. You can reach the see in little more than half an hour and sky resorts -in winter- in 2h. The house is a small apartment -1br, 1ba- in a duplex, but it's a very loved house, it's romantic, tidy and with every comfort, such as air conditioning in the bedroom, for example. On one side of the house there is a very large patio and a garden, both shared with the other apartment, which is of my parents. On the other side there is a small street and a beautiful stream. The garden is populated by cats, and by night also foxes pass by. There is a buss stop to the city just on the other side of the street, and the use of my car is negotiable.
The house is cat friendly (if cats are educated) and tobacco friendly (even if I do not smoke). No drugs.
