main square of Apricale was the place were Arturo and
Jeanette first met in 1999 during one of the theatre
evenings in August.It was love at first sight, but the time
was not right then. Arturo lived in Apricale already for 3
years when they met and Jeanette was here to visit her
sister and brother in law.
2000 Jeanette bought a little apartment in the village .The
place had to be restored completely and Jeanette called a
local builder and guess who showed upů.. the rest is
history. Arturo kept on working as a builder and had started
to develop properties mostly for foreigners who bought
second homes in Apricale. Jeanette remained in Holland and
kept her job as a manager of a social security office.
