Saluti da Milano e da Alassio
We are a couple of 60 years. Roberta's me and my husband is Alberto. We have a 35 year old son Francesco who lives with Michela and a few months we are grandparents of Julia, an adorable little girl. We live and work in Milan in the field of real estate. (www.meyland.it). We really like our work because we do it with such commitment and passion. Despite the moments are not easy in the world, we still have no intention to quit. We spend almost every weekend of the year at Alassio. Our house is in a beautiful hill called "San Nicola", where little by little all the members of my extended family has refitted rustics or built new houses , always keeping the style of Liguria. We love very much Alassio and, even for this reason, we trip shortly. But the idea of an exchange is also very attractive and the house that we propose is very pretty.
Unfortunately, since my husband moves very little and with great effort, I love to organize at least once a year, a short trip with three girlfriends. That's why I indicated 4 adults in the group that travels.
Siamo una coppia di circa 60 anni. Roberta sono io e Alberto è mio marito. Abbiamo un figlio di 35 anni Francesco che vive con Michela e da pochi mese siamo nonni di Giulia, una bimba adorabile. Viviamo e lavoriamo a Milano nel campo dell'intermediazione immobiliare. Il nostro lavoro ci piace molto perchè lo facciamo con tanto impegno e passione. (see: www.meyland.it). Nonostante i momenti non facili in tutto il mondo, non abbiamo ancora alcuna intenzione di smettere. Passiamo quasi tutti gli week end dell'anno ad Alassio. Si trova in una bellissima collina denominata "San Nicola" dove poco per volta tutti i membri della mia grande Famiglia ha ristrutturato rustici o costruito nuove case, sempre mantenendo lo stile ligure. Adoriamo Alassio, e anche per questo viaggiamo poco. Ma l'idea di uno scambio è molto allettante anche perchè la casa che proponiamo è molto carina.
Purtroppo, però, da quando mio marito si muove molto poco e con grande fatica, io amo organizzare almeno una volta all'anno, un breve viaggio con tre amiche. Per questo ho indicato 4 adulti nel gruppo che viaggia.

The exchange in Alassio was one of the most memorable to-date, because of the house, the location, but also because of the most incredibly hospitable hosts and the extended Italian family. We stayed in Roberta's house in Alassio. The house is actually half of a villa on top of a hill, all of which is owned by Roberta's extended family - more than 50 members who have beautiful houses on the hill. The half of the house is very private, opens out on an amazing terrace with views over the sea, has access to a swimming pool which is only shared with the other family (Roberta's brother, his wife and any visiting members, such as a 2-year old lovely granddaughter). The house is very spacious, has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace, lounging by the pool, cooking meals in the well-stocked kitchen, and exploring Alassio and the surrounding towns. Honestly, it was quite hard to remove ourselves from the villa, it was just so gorgeous and relaxing, surrounded by lush greenery. Those more energetic amongst us made use of fitness equipment - there is a stationary bike, a treadmill, a punch bug, and a fully equipped gym that Roberta's brother built next to the house that he kindly let us use. Half the time we were alone in the whole area as nobody was in the other half of the house, and for a few days we would see the other family at the pool. They were incredibly kind, friendly and hospitable, and provided us with tips as to where to go and eat and what to do. They all spoke good English. Roberta arranged for someone to meet us in the house and left us a fully stocked fridge. When we left, we didn't even have to clean, as there is help. Roberta and her husband Alberto came down a few days later and stayed in a smaller house on the hill. It was great to meet them and, believe it or not, they took us sailing on their boat for a couple of hours. I will never forget this amazing exchange and the Italian warmth and hospitality.
