Sono fiorentina ma mi divido da anni tra la mia bellissima città ed il mare della Versilia.
Dalla mia passine per le belle dimore , ho creato Ma Maison services , dedicata agli affitti turistici.Pur avendo fatto dell'ospitalita' il mio lavoro per me è sopratutto uno stiledi vita, appartiene alla mia natura...gli amici dicono che una delle mie doti è quella di " riscaldare" le case...di saper accogliere gli ospiti senza farli sentire aspetto quindi per condividere con voi questa magnifica esperienza!
