Lifestyling

In Italy I have experienced both Dolce Far Niente as well as the fashionable and fast life. I am also very familiair with the sometimes famous frustrating Italian Lifestyle in bureaucracy, buying, building and managing a property…. With a passion for finding spots and spaces and living the Bella Vita I got to know the lovely locations plus perfect products, people and providers to now help others create  or find an Italian style dream experience, whether it’s personal, professional for clients or company or making a film or photo shoot.

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 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. Again four years later I finished building and designing a Hideaway Home back in Sardinia and since then I have been commuting with many travels between Sardinia and Tuscany and visits to my Homeland Holland.

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Hotel Administration, have worked in several areas in the Hospitality & Travel Industry and now work as a consultant and event planner in Italy, focused on Sardinia and Tuscany especially  my favourite places Costa Smeralda and Chianti.

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…
