In 2014, Arno and Mikki bought a scrap piece of land and turned it into today's beautiful garden called Mikki's Place to Stay. On January 5, 2015, they welcomed their first clients. In a few years, Mikki's Place has grown into a camper resort where people feel at home.
Our employees became our family. Daliana welcomes you as the General Manager at the reception. Alex and his father, Mario, take care of our animals and gardens. And Linda provides all hygienic needs. Without them, there is no Mikki's Place.
The adage blood is thicker than water is sure applicable to Arno. Arno was the manager of a campsite in Zeist, Netherlands, until he was 35 years old. Next, he started a company in the construction of wooden chalets. He has lived since 2007 in the Algarve, Portugal and is active as an entrepreneur. From 2010 to 2015, Arno helped Mikki with ceramic articles production, taking on all the technical and logistical tasks.
Mikki, at her heart, is an artist and multi-lingual businesswoman. She received her training in various art departments in Belgium. After successful operations in Belgium, Mikki has been active since 2008 in Portugal. She started in 2010 as an independent artist in her name and built up an international brand as a ceramist and painter. In 2021 Mikki F. decided to put more dedication into her art and opened the Msquare Gallery.
Mikki F. creates a variety of items: sculptures for inside and for gardens, tableware, small gifts, lamps, pots, vases, and others. Each piece is 100% handcrafted. That makes every item unique and exclusive. She also designs interiors, gardens and swimming pools.
