Los gatos is one of the most desirable towns in Northern California. Our property is worth a lot because it is a nice home and because of where we live. Our neighborhood is quiet with wide streets nice for taking walks. Lots of families live in the neighborhood. We are a half hour from the coast, one hour from San Francisco, and 3 1/2 hours to Lake Tahoe or Yosemite (you can ski from Nov to May in Tahoe). San Jose is a big metropolitan city 10 minutes away. Our town has nice boutique shops and restaurants as does San Jose. The weather is mild year round. We have Air conditioning for the hotter days. You can use our car, rent a car, or use public transportation.
We have family in Italia in the Milano area, Lucca, Viareggio and Cardozo. My husband and I are planning to look at properties in Italia during our visit. We are in our 50's and are enjoying our second careers together in real estate. Before Franco was in the wine business and I was a school principal. We have two grown sons that are both musicians. Everyone speaks some Italian in our family. My husband and my oldest son are fluent. Franco's parents came to California from Lucca when his mother was pregnant with him and his twin sister. We have many friends and family members that would love to help you get around when you visit. Some of them also speak Italian. It will be just the two of us staying in your home.
