About the owner: We are a family with 2 girls, just moved to the US from France. My husband Libero is Italian and I am French, I work as an architect, Libero teaches Architecture at Georgia Tech. As architects we like to be surrounded by beautiful architecture and furniture, and we really love this house. We are planning to spend 2 months in Europe every summer and would like to rent our house while we are away. We live in this house all year round so it has every thing you need to make it comfortable so you can have the most enjoyable vacation time. Since I am french, I love cooking so you will find all the utensils you can dream of to make great cuisine. We also have a lot of books in English, French and Italian that you might enjoy.
