Since 2001 Nicole and Hans have a beautiful holiday home in France, Province of Pas de Calais. When they first saw the house it was rather dilapidated, but they noticed that this house and garden had many possibilities. Step by step they have refurbished the house and decorated it with finds from the “Emmaus”, a well-known chain of thrift shops in France. Here they found beautiful items for little money. Hans is landscape architect and Nicole is an artist. Together with son Jan (25) and daughter Bob (23), or with friends and family, the house is thoroughly enjoyed and used. It is truly a paradise with a beautiful garden. A cozy cottage with wood stoves makes it a wonderfully retreat from the hectic urban life in Amsterdam.
