In summary, nothing similar to what happens in Europe or the United States. For the italians, see www.ilsole24ore.com or repubblica.it.
  • il Kenya is a country where those who have an average income in Europe could easily keep a medium-high quality lifestyle, for the moderate local wages and the low cost of goods and services.

  • In the area of our villas the Italian language is a common languange, thank to the tourism started 40 years ago. You can use for shopping, nightlife or talk to the service staff.
