Hey, I'm Wayne!
Cannes, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France · Member since August 2011

Before I get started about myself I just want to say that our villa has SEVEN BEDROOMS so if you do not see availability it may still well be worth asking anyway.

Also, we work in the catering industry for TV and Festivals so the summer can be completely MAD for us, meaning I do not always reply as quick as I would like. Often we are in a field with no internet or phone which mean my responses can also be a bit brief at times. I really do want to write long notes sharing my love and experiences of Cannes and Airbnb but it is just not always possible.Please feel free to chase, scream and shout if you do not get an answer as quick as you need.

I am a busy 48 year old living with my partner Lucy who is a chef. We LOVE parties and food and are lucky enough to run an catering and events company between the UK and France where we have the most wonderful clients including some really fab celebs. We have five great teenage kids and when we are not living in Cannes we have a home in the hills just twenty minutes in-land. You can check out Red-Radish on the web if you need any cooking or even just some advice on the region!

I also love and work on the internet and you can find me on most good social media and up-and-coming sites. Isn't airbnb great btw! Lucy is sports mad and ex-GB windsurfing champion and a pretty darn fine marathon runner too. Our eldest son is in the British ski team. I am naturally fit but more management team than naturally gifted athlete. I am far too clumsy for that!

The notes on airbnb suggests I tell you five things I can't live without: I was going to be corny and state the obvious by listing my family but as there are six of them I really couldn't decide which one to upset by leaving out. Lucy does the cooking remember, so on that basis I am going to plump for Travelling, Cannes, my crappy old speed boat moored in Cannes, the internet, good wine, oysters, fresh Pasta, thin Pizzas, Asparagus and all food in general. Oh dear I seem to have got carried away with food again.

My favourite movie is Le Grand Bleu by Luc Beeson where the cinematography is just wonderful and really makes me what to get in the car and hit the road. I also adore the car he drives which a little bashed up Fiat 500. I have seen plenty of the world but have a lot more travelling left in me yet. We love boutique and chic including camping glamping and you are far more likely to find us in a secluded camp site than you are a five star hotel. Partly because the kids have spent all our money but mostly because we just like being outside!

Lastly I really do know the French Riviera well so please do hit me up if you need any advice (even if you are staying somewhere else) regards things to do, places to see and of course my favourite topic of food.

Thanks for reading this far and have a great day!
