Bianca Pippolo and Dinand Jansen were both born and raised in the Netherlands. Bianca is half-Italian half-Dutch (father Italian, mother Dutch) and is fluent in Dutch, Italian, English, German and French. She used to work in Human Resources. Dinand worked as an independant in corporate & employer branding projects. He is fluent in Dutch, English and German, tries to study the Italian language…

In 2017 Dinand suggested: why not start a casa vacanza in Italy? So together we bought Casa del Tramonto (House of the Sunset) near Arezzo, in Tuscany, Italy. A very beautiful place with 3 holiday apartments, swimming pool, vineyard, olive trees and above all… stunning views. Now we have the privilege to live here, in a small house opposite the apartments.

We both love the Italian lifestyle, with good food, wine and cooking. So we have very well equipped kitchens in each apartment. Guests have the option to cook delicious meals with the wonderful ingredients available locally. And there is a new outdoor kitchen for a.o. cooking workshops. We know the area well and are on hand to give you lots of tips and hints about places to visit and best restaurants to try.
It’s also possible to organize a wine tour for you. Bianca likes to accommodate yoga retreats or in the future even wedding ceremonies. For larger groups we can work together with our good neighbours, who run a B&B in Gebbia.

Since the summer of 2018 we also have our classic wooden boat, the Pettersson Manja, in the Trasimeno Lake. So we can offer you a unique boat tour, exclusively for our guests!

Come and see for yourself. Let’s share La Dolce Vita.
