  • Description


    Hai. I am Maria and I live together with Jan Andries just outside a small village in the north of Holland. We are musicians. I am a singer and Jan Andries plays the piano and the organ. Classical and sometimes light music. I love to cook vegetarian organic food. Sometimes fish. We have a dog and a cat. A few years ago we bought this tiny house with a huge garden. Over the years I build a few small buildings with for 90% secondhand natural materials. The last project was a big room for music making and cooking. We make every day long walks with our dog in the woods and the open fields. You are very welcome to join us on these walks so you can experience the beautifull countryside of this part of Holland.
