Isn't it a dream?  Your own B&B abroad? Well for us it's more than a dream, it's our new adventure! We have been talking about it for more than ten years now, when in 2016 we decide to take the plunge. Italy will be our new home ... 


We are on the eve of our decision to change the course of our lives when Wendy turns out to be pregnant with our second child. What to do? Put everything on hold? No, we want to continue now. And so we put our house in Noordwijk up for sale. Four months later it was sold and we can start our new life. An exciting but most of all fun adventure.


The landscape, the authentic villages, delicious Italian food, ice cream and wine, Italian hospitality, and sun, sun and more sun. In short, the real Italian life: la dolce vita!

 That is what attracts us so much to Italy, especially Tuscany. We all find this in our new home town: Volterra. The old water mill, which we found, proved ideal. A part was already finished, another part we can still work on. That we have little job experience does not stop us.


Making sure our guests have a smile on their face is our motto. Thats why we call our new home: il Sorriso di Volterra (the smile of Volterra). We want to make sure you have a good time, give you tips and share our own experiences with you. We like to give that little bit extra attention so that, when you go home, you have a smile on your face, and like to come back.



Saluti, and see you soon at Il Sorriso di Volterra !


JC, Wendy, Quinten & Vieve
