Jacqueline Altan-van der Veen (b. 1964) met the love of her life on holiday in the Kekova region in 1994. They travelled back and forth between Holland and Turkey for years. Both were reluctant to leave their native homeland permanently. In 2003, they finally settled in Turkey with their six-year-old twins. During the week Jacqueline lives with the children in Antalya, where she works as a children’s physiotherapist. In the weekend she stays in Kekova where she and her husband run a hotel.
