About Me

Stef is a Dutch expat who moved to Italy, accompanied by his husband and dog, to start their bed and breakfast Villa I Due Padroni in the Oltrepo Pavese wine region, just 50 km (30 miles) south of Milan.

"Living in Italy: the Real Deal" is his first book, about the hilarious (mostly) and horrendous (sometimes) adventures in Italy.

Experience his rollercoaster ride in trying to find a house, buy it, renovate it and turn it into a beautiful b&b, beating bureaucracy, bad builders, ridiculous real estate agents, eerie electricians, pathetic plumbers and arrogant architects.

Winner of a range of awards like the Readers' Favorite 2017 Award and the
Reader Views Award in travel, memoir and humor categories.

For lovers of Frances Mayes' Under the Tuscan Sun and Tim Park's Italian Neighbours.
