Corrie and Ron de Hoog
Tessa In the spring of 2002 we said goodbye to our life in
Holland to start a new one in France. Not because we were unhappy or dissatisfied, but because we did not
want to have regrets at a later stage for not having realised our plans, or
just left it too late.
To make our dreams come true, choices had to be
made. So, a job was given up, a company wound up, properties sold.
In 2001 we bought – after a lot of thought
-our beautiful home in an equally beautiful spot. Still young enough to start
new activities, and because we still had to earn our living, we started our
French B&B in 2003, officially.
We wanted a more quiet, natural and relaxed way
of living, without the stress of a demanding and urbanized Holland. So
it became a B&B, although the profession of host and hostess was new to us
as well. It seemed (and proved to be) a really satisfying occupation when you
bear in mind that it matches our wishes and hobbies perfectly.
