About the Owner
I am Dutch with a life long passion for France. I fell in love with the Pyrénées-Orientales during a vacation and bought Maison Amandier as a ruin. The view just knocked me down.
This view and the medieval village of Mosset were (and stil are) so very inspiring that I wrote a literary thriller that is set in Mosset. This thriller (named 'A Free View') was released in November 2013. In May 2014 I received the highest grade on the Dutch Crimezone Forum ever given to a Dutch author. Moreover my book (A Free View) was nominated for 3 thriller awards in the Netherlands.
At this moment I am working on my 2nd thriller, called 'The File'.
From the Owner
“It was a 'Coup de Foudre' like the French say. An emotional decision taken during a vacation, without a lot of considering. It turned out to be my best impulsive action ever. As my beloved Pyrénées-Orientales have ALL under the Catalunian sun: mountains, sea, wine, fruit, welcoming residents, a long history, culture, art, great food, and the best climate of France with 300 days of sunshine.”
