Janinka and Michael live a bit of a nomadic life between their home in the Netherlands and their domain in France. The intention is to increase our time in France at La Cabane. We have two horses in France and two British Shorthair cats in the Netherlands. The 2 Jack Russell Terriers travel with Michael up and down. Our love for animals is in our veins!


Janinka is a lawyer specialized in criminal and family law. Janinka operates mainly in the Netherlands and has her own firm with her colleague. She tries to spend as much time in France as possible.


Michael is a veterinarian. After selling his surgery “De Dierendokter” at the Javastraat in The Hague, he practices six months per year in his surgery in Le Buisson de Cadouin, France. In addition, Michael locums at his old surgery in The Hague and in a surgery in Lisse. The remaining time he spends at La Cabane tending to the animals, maintaining contacts with the tenants, restoring and maintaining the domain.


This way we enjoy the best of both worlds and are glad to share our beautiful domain with our guests.
