Autumn. For us the most beautiful season of the year. Looking for fallen leaves and mushrooms, having fun in the forest together with the children, sniffing up the delicious scents in the forest and celebrating a new beginning.
Of course, it gets dark, cold and silent. The animals in the wood will retreat to other places and slowly the trees will drop their colorful leaves. But this is an organic process of decomposition, change and letting go to enable nature and animals to shine again in spring. A wonderful process, isn’t it? For us this means ‘resilience’, the resilience to see changes, challenges and setbacks as opportunities.
In the middle of the Covid-19 crisis, we have made a new start. In a special area we found our dream house with our ultimate goal of running a guesthouse. We fell in love with the location: it is located in the middle of the forest, at the foot of the ski slopes and with a wonderful view over the Vercors. And now more than ever, we believe that staying in such an environment, with nature as a source for more resilience, can make you shine (again).
Nicolas and Laura, a doer and a thinker. What unites us is that we pursue our dreams. We are not afraid to take up challenges. Doing nothing ensures that everything remains the same.
Nicolas, with his roots in the Vercors, has an Italian father and a French mother. Adventurous, always positive and above all the handyman. During winter season he is a rescue worker on the ski slopes and during the rest of the year he works as a freelance bricklayer.
Laura, originally Dutch, settled in the Vercors 7 years ago. Driven, creative, a dreamer, with a communication and marketing background and ready to embrace an active life outdoors.
Last but not least, we would like to introduce our two mini staff members: Timo (2 year old) and Livy (5 years old). Never a dull moment with these two 😉
