Some ten years ago we came to live in the Alps with our children, who were then small, to build a new life in this beautiful area. We escaped the grey climate and the stress in the Netherlands, to work here in the nicest area on earth, and to enjoy all the sportive possibilities: skiing, climbing, sailing...
