Nienke: “years ago when the kids were still small, I searched the web for hours to find the best cottages and farmhouses for our family holidays in Italy. During these wonderful holidays the desire arised to own our own home in Italy. Already nine years ago we bought our holiday house in Italy in Le Marche region. By now I know the area very well and I feel part of local Italian life.
After working for 30 years in the health care industry I decided to change my life course. The kids are living on their own and I spend most of my time in Italy”.
Jorina: “as a granddaughter of an Italian grandfather I always loved Italy. Every holiday we spend at my grandparents house in Tuscany near Siena and I truly loved to stay with them, visiting friends with my grand dad, dived into the vibrant culture and love the incredible views and amazing food.
I worked for many years as a communications consultant in Amsterdam for large companies. In 2008 me and my husband decided to move to Italy. Both our children were born in Italy and went to school in our small village. In that period I started to organise weddings in Italy and came across many beautiful places and accommodations. I also met many owners of a holiday house or agriturismo who asked me if I could help them to rent their place to foreigners. This is the answer to that question”.
