I am a Dutch woman, born in the 60’s, into a shipbuilder’s family near Rotterdam. My husband and I have five grown up kids, living in Holland (The Hague & Amsterdam) and France (Lyon). As true lovers of nature and sports, we decided to move from the Netherlands to the beautiful surroundings of Sintra Cascais Natural Park in Portugal in 2016. The house that caught our eye in Assafora offered such opportunities, that the decision to accommodate guests was easily made.
After my studies (in Switzerland) in the 1980’s, I was in the lucky circumstance to travel to all continents in our world, encountering amazing and great people triggering my ever existing interest in meeting people. That is one of the main reasons I am looking forward to welcome you at our new place in this beautiful country and to warmly receive you in either English, French, Dutch, German and by now also in the Portuguese language!
