I am English, half Italian, single mother. I lived in Italy with my daughter for six years, turning my property into a summer rental. I now live again in the UK but continue to rent out my property in the beautiful Tuscan area of Lucca.
I really recommend a visit to this beautiful part of Italy. There is alot to see and do surrounding the village and I have always found it a lovely friendly area for family living.
