Salve, sono Leontine!

I am originally Dutch, but I have spent nearly all my adult life abroad. After short stays in France, Aruba and the Dominican Republic, I lived years in Mexico and Belgium.

In 2000 we moved to the eternal city Rome and from there in 2004 to the idyllic island Sardinia. In 2008 we chose Tuscany for our ‘Dolce Vita’ countryside life in the ‘middle of nowhere’. Four years later we decided on a more central location and settled on a Chianti hill overlooking Renaissance Florence.

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Hotel Administration, worked in several areas in the Hospitality Industry and organise events ranging from gala evenings, weddings and reunions to presentations, meetings and incentives.

More about me


I have been lucky enough to expand my creativity working with my passions: adventure, art & architecture.

I have designed my dream: 2 great places at my preferred locations in Italy: a Heavenly Hideaway Home in Sardinia & a Creative Complex in Tuscany, both to relax, reconnect, regenerate…

My passion is creating connections & experiences in order to collect memories, to learn & live, grow & flow…
