About us & contacts

Welcome to our travel blog.

We are a couple of Italians travelers (Luca & Alessandra) and expats currently living in France.

The two of us on a beach somewhere in southern Sri Lanka.

We left Italy some years ago (about 20 for Luca and 10 for Alessandra). We met in London where we were alternating our office work Monday to Friday, with as many trips as we could (often limited in time due to work commitments).
After years together, a bit tired of the cosmopolitan mess of London, we have decided to change our life, buy our own place and start living a simpler life.
A life made of less quantity and higher quality of life. A life made of simple things...our vegetable garden, our music, our books and our walks in the countryside.

But, we are not rich and still have to work for living, so we thought of opening a B&B. It was through one of our trips that we discovered the beautiful corner of France where we then decided to settle 4 years ago: the Dordogne.
Here after a lot of planning and searching we finally found a cute village house in Sarlat with a big garden where we finally opened our B&B, Le Casse-Noix.

But we haven't lost our craving for traveling and we always try to make the most of our time off when we close the business for a couple of months every year.

We love to explore and experience the world.We are not tourists or holidaymakers. So we will keep writing about our trips and about the amazing region that has become our home.

If you would like us to help you planning your next trip, or need any info about the Dordogne, please feel free to contact us.
