I'm Cristina, a curious an sunny person. Currently I'm working in the family's business: the management of our historical residence "Villa il Borghetto" in Siena and the touristic rental of our 8 apartments.
I love books and music, people and dogs! Together with my beautiful family we will take care of you during your stay!
Let me present my "family":
Cesare: everything you will see around you from the colour of the walls, the flooring, the bath room tiles is the fruit of his taste. His work was originally flower production and naturally he will be taking care of the extensive green areas of the complex.
Marina: just as a real Italian Mamma will be taking care of the apartment in every minimal detail and will make you feel part of the family not just guests!
Claudio: eldest child his apartment just across from reception area of the Villa. He will take care of the day to day running of your stay..and if you have any problems just knock at his door!!
Cristina: younger sister - It's no easy to write about oneself! - my university studies have centred around communication and I’ve decided to commit my know how to the family business and to the fascinating world of tourism. I’m here to suggest itineraries, typical restaurants, and cultural events according to the time of year.
I look forward to meeting you!
