Mediterranean beauty, purity, authenticity and elegance, the keywords Nienke describes when she talks about Italy. From the age of 4 she traveled to Lago di Garda, Lago Maggiore and Toscana. Now, as a grown woman, she returns every year to enjoy all that Italy has to offer.

“The moment I drive into Italy is a moment of real happiness. With an open window, music in the background and the view of the landscapes rays through the sun, gives me a deeply free feeling.” The first thing she does after she arrives at her accommodation is looking for a local market. Spotting treasures is one of her favorite things to do, so we are happy to have her as part of the Labro family!

She recommends going to Soave to have a wine tour. If you drive through hilly expansive landscape over narrow roads, along vineyards and family restaurants you experience the ultimate Italian feeling

More tips for Italy: “go eat with the locals! Once I had a diner with a local farmer in the middle of nowhere. We ate a homemade lasagna, delizioso! This is one of the greatest memories I have.”
