Interaction with guests
I live 3 km far from the villa, but we are a present family. My mother in law has a garden nesr the villa and in summer offers to the guests fruits or vegetables. I have always my mobile phone with me and guests can contact me all day. One day a week in some periods of the year (always in high season) I organize a pizza pèarty or a dinner with Tuscany's food with all the guests: it's a way for make friendsheep.
