We are Jan and Tineke, and we would like to tell you more about ourselves.
I,Tineke, have worked, aside from taking care of my children, for years as a nurse and in Home Care. But I had higher ambitions, and I became a licensed medical pedicure and beautician, and opened my own salon in Voorthuizen (Netherlands) Taking care of people runs in my blood, and I loved my work. I followed many extra courses to become more skilled and versatile. Massages, Hot Stone-therapy, I can do it all. In our home we prepared a B&B room to take in guests. We loved pampering them. I love to cook and bake, and my family and friends and guests loved eating it.
Jan and I often pondered on our own B&B combined with wellness such as a Hot Tub, Sauna, massage, beauty treatments and pedicure. And thus we dreamt on…..
I, Jan, have worked for many years as a technical specialist for a famous car brand. It was nice to be managing my own time, solve intricate problems and being physically active. The question Who am I is a rather difficult one. I am a man who likes hard labour, and what my eyes see, my hands can make! I grew up on a farm, so I am used to physical labour. I love growing my own vegetables and keeping animals like chickens and such. Through our B&b in Voorthuizen we discovered we like spending time with our guests with a drink, sitting by a fire. Over the years, Tineke and I dreamt of our own business, in which we could combine our hobbies of taking care of guests, arranging daytrips, growing vegetables, cooking and having a fruit orchard. But above all, to let other people enjoy all that we have to offer!
Another thing on our wish-list Sun and warmth! So after long deliberation we chose Spain, put our house up for sale, and Here We Are, at our pride Mas Solana (many sunrays)
