My husband Robert Jan and I have tried to make a dream house out of a centuries old stable with hay loft and I think we succeeded quite well! I love gardening, and every year an other little piece of our 3 acre property is planted with roses, fruit trees, ect. We have 130 olive trees which have to be pruned every year and if you are lucky and come in November/December you might be able to help with the olive harvest.
I adore cooking, especially the Indonesian and Italian cuisine, so if you wish I will cook you a lovely lunch or dinner.
I work part-time in Lucca, but in my free time I love to read history and travel books, cook, teach ceramics painting and go sailing and of course work in the garden.
I would love to travel so much more, but time is a problem. We have a sweet dachshund ZaZa and siamese cat Mr. Bing.
