About Sieta Plantinga

Recently we, Tom and Sieta Plantinga, may call ourselves the happy owners of Les Magnolias.

After a thorough orientation and search of two years throughout France, we found our spot “in the Dordogne. In September 2015 we settled here permanently.

Sieta ….

… Born in the Netherlands, raised in Friesland …. Les Magnolias is a logical step for her after working years in tourism, then as a freelancer organizing and teaching English lessons for adults and the last years working with Tom in their own business. In the meantime raising 3 children (Sanne, Jan Hedzer and Ilse). Overall a woman with years of experience in welcoming, guiding and managing people.

Sieta speaks Dutch, French, English, Frisian and a little bit of Spanish.

Tom ….

… Born and raised in the Netherlands. He has been working in sales his whole life. He is a very enthusiastic and passionate person who thinks it’s time to change life. His background is in the sales and marketing field, he has a genuine interest in people and he thinks it would be wonderful to welcome guests from all over the world and exchange stories and experiences. He has lived his entire adult life in Friesland, and is actually a Frisian Dutchman.

Tom speaks Dutch, German, Frisian and English, and is working hard to get his French at an “acceptable level”.

Together ….

… We like to receive our guests in a casual, personal and relaxed atmosphere; We like to develop customized packages for our guests to make sure they have a wonderfull time, and we still enjoy each other and of course our dream of a new life in France. Also, we often go to Vide Greniers and we like to visit local markets and festivals. We enjoy the french “cuisine” and we want to discover France as our 2nd homeland.

Furthermore, we are “bon vivants” and love to meet new people It is the interaction with others that makes running our bed and breakfast and gites business so much fun.

Sieta Plantinga purchased this house in 2015

Why Sieta Plantinga chose Lalinde

The beautiful location on the outskirts of Lalinde with all amenities within walking distance, the overwhelming view of the river with it’s ever-changing water, the many water birds such as swans and geese, the presence of the large park garden, the pasture for our animals, the Mediterranean atmosphere at the pool and the 400-meter riverside makes this for us a unique location. We want to offer our guests a pleasant stay at Les Magnolias. Not only as a central base to explore the region, but also to relax and totally unwind.

Enjoy the tranquility on a sunny terrace, have a delicious breakfast outside one of the terraces, look at the stunning view of the ever changing nature of the Dordogne river, go strolling along the banks of the river with swans and weeping willows, take a swim in our attractive pool, listen to the croaking frogs and chirping crickets in the evening, play Jeu de Boule, a ballgame, under old trees …

In short,

“Les Magnolias is a place where you can relax and stay in a personal and friendly atmosphere.”

We warmly welcome you throughout the year.

Tom & Sieta Plantinga
