I am a chartered accountant having qualified in 1973 in Cardiff, Wales.
On qualifying I worked in Rome for 2 years with intrnational accounting firm, Deloittes and subsequently developed my own accounting firm in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, UK.
While there I kept a yacht in Salcombe and Plymouth, Devon from where we sailed to France and the Channel Islands.
Needing another challenge I moved back to Italy in 2006 with my wife, Elizabeth who speaks Welsh (not always useful in Italy!!) where I started renovating property including one in Mougins, near Cannes, France.
My love of rugby has taken me on a British Lions tour to Australia and follow Wales in South Africa. Further travels have taken us to Mauritius, Kuala Lumpur and Langkawi in Malaysia as well as most of Europe and a cruise on the Nile.
As a result of this we have built up a good idea of what people want when staying away from home.
