Your hosts


We’re a lively and welcoming family of five. Babbo Antonio comes from Sardinia, while mamma Elena proudly carries Venetian heritage in her veins. Our three children—Anna Sinead, Sofia Niamh, and Alessandro Oisin—were all born in Ireland, the place we’ve called home for the past two decades. We find joy in the company of dear friends, in the exhilarating adventures of travel, in immersing ourselves in diverse cultures, in the invigorating embrace of nature through hiking, and in creating lasting memories together.
