Meet our Directors
It all started in my native country The Netherlands, with the idea of wanting to learn another language: Spanish immediately attracted me a lot, not only for being one of the most spoken languages in the world, but also because it is the language that brings back the best childhood memories of my summer holidays in Spain. My first semester abroad in Andalusia fascinated me so much that I came back more times until I decided to live here. I´ve been working for seven years for some of the most well known Spanish language schools for foreigners, taking advantage of my studies in “International Business and Languages” and my Masters degree in “International Business Communication”.
During the past seven years in Spain, Andalusia has become my second home and never stops surprising me, thanks to its countless beauties and fascinating culture. This is why the Cultural Tours of PeachTravels for me isn´t just a job but an undeniable passion. If you look at our itineraries, you will realize that I love the authentic, both known and hidden, and I would love to share that with you and show you all of it.
Growing up in Italy, my wanderlust was fed from a very young age, thanks to my parents. As a teenager I have been increasing it traveling a lot, feeling very soon the desire to live a deeper immersion in the culture of the places I visited, instead of simply visiting as a "common" tourist, sightseeing the most popular landmarks and taking postcard-type pictures. That static reality deprived me to feel the real soul, the vibe of the place, which is definitely the most rewarding and enriching.
After many trips, in the summer of 2002, I ended up in Andalusia by chance, without knowing that those, that were to be common summer holidays, would change my life forever. In fact, this wonderful country and its genuine people caught me from day one, so without hesitation I adapted my life plans and stayed here. Taking advantage of my studies in Tourism Management I started working for a local Spanish school, before founding and leading an international language travel agency. But now the time has come to realize my dream and make you too feel the authentic soul of Andalusia.
