If you are staying in a huge hotel at the Costa Blanca, it may be of less importance who your host is. But if you choose a small-scale ‘casa rural’ like Finca Les coves, you would probably like to know a little something about ‘the people behind’. Let us introduce ourselves!
Our friends would probably describe us as a couple that sucks the marrow out of life. Bon vivants in the purest sense of the word. That’s also how we met, celebrating life in Rotterdam’s nightlife, our former living place. Always surrounded by a group of friends for whom we gladly organized (dinner)parties. The more the merrier, because happiness is doubled when shared!
Our shared past in the hospitality industry probably won’t surprise you. Anna studied at the Hotelschool The Hague for a while and during her studies she always worked in restaurants with great pleasure. However, at some point she swapped slinging beers and crowded terraces for a career in online marketing.
When Cees got his first job in the hospitality industry, he never expected to stick around for so long, but it grew on him! As soon as the art of creating the perfect beer head was a second nature for him, he began to gather knowledge about fancy wines and learned to make gin&tonics in endless varieties and tastes. Life was good… Yet something was missing. It lacked sparkle!
When we got married September 2017 in the French countryside of the Ardèche (at the B&B of Cees his mother), we suddenly knew it: a life like this would fit us like a glove. As soon as Finca Les Coves crossed our path it was love at first sight; sparkles, butterflies, pink clouds, the whole shebang. In running this little paradise we find all the things we love whilst sharing the things we are good at. We didn’t doubt for long and left with the entire zoo (two cats and dog) to Jijona. Pretty terrifying, but mostly rather awesome!
So: do you want to chill in nature, at our poolside with an ice-cold mojito in your hand? We will make it happen!
Hasta pronto guapos!
