We are Koen Huijbrechts (left) and Menno Plate (right). We love the country of Italy. It’s an amazing holiday destination and we have been going there very frequently during the last decades. Menno (41) has relatives on Sicily and does speak Italian quite well and Koen (37) is studying the language. We have both explored many destinations in Italy and we admire Italy for its wonderful landscapes, delicious food, hospitable people, relaxed climate and her splendid beaches.
We are very close friends for already 15 years and in 2011 we got the idea to develop websites about the lesser known destinations and places in Italy. There is so much beauty to discover in Italy besides Tuscany, Rome and Naples. The first region we were amazed by was Abruzzo.
As we went to Abruzzo for several times last year to discover its beauty, we got in contact with many owners of holiday farmhouses, the so called “Agriturismo”. Many of these are located at splendid locations. We have selected the best of them which resulted in our first website in the UK, Agriturismoabruzzo.co.uk. We visit the farms and their owners frequently to update our information and love to help you with finding a great holiday location in Abruzzo.
Our newest discovery is the beautiful city of Trapani, on the island of Sicily. This year we have been visiting this city for the first time and were surprised by its friendly people and relaxed atmosphere. We discovered and visited some great accommodations in the historical centre and are glad to offer you those on our newest website for the UK.
If you need any help or need information for a holiday on Sicily please contact us.
We hope you can make a choice out of the fantastic accommodations on our website and enjoy the beautiful region of Trapani on the island of Sicily!
