Mi chiamo Antonella, ho 59 anni ed insegno italiano e storia al Liceo Artistico di Grosseto. Ho due figlie, Anita e Marina, rispettivamente di 24 e 20 anni.
Amo leggere, infatti nel mio salotto ho una grande libreria che raccoglie tutti i libri che mi piacciono di più! Amo anche i film, l'arte e lo spettacolo. Non potrei mai fare a meno del mare e della natura, infatti Grosseto è perfetta! una piccola e tranquilla cittadina, immersa nella bellissima natura maremmana, la campagna a due passi ed il mare a pochi minuti di auto! Mi piace cucinare ed andare in bicicletta.
Ho deciso di iscrivermi come host su airbnb perchè le mie figlie non sono mai a casa, una per lavoro e l'altra per via dell'università, quindi le loro stanze si sono liberate. Anche io nei mesi estivi viaggio, per questo motivo la casa rimane vuota, così ho deciso di affittarla!
