I'm originally from Scotland and am married to Vincent who is French, we have a 6 year old son, Etienne.
We founded a local charity called Parfums de Vie in 2008. The goal of Parfums de Vie is to improve the lives and opportunities available for the marginalized and underprivileged children and youth of Grasse, through a variety of educational programs and activities. Our work with the children has brought to our attention the acute needs of their parents, and Parfums de Vie is also engaged in Adult Education, Leadership Development, Advocacy and Community & Integration projects. Parfums de Vie also runs a Furniture and Clothing Recycling Initiative that benefits the many needy families of Grasse.
We believe that we can make a difference for tomorrow through investing in the youth of today, and already Parfums de Vie has impacted hundreds of children and families, and become known as a force for good in Grasse and beyond.
Renting out our beautiful apartment helps us to keep doing this local charity work that we feel so passionate about.
Aside from Parfums de Vie, we absolutely love the outdoor life here and enjoy walking and running on the many fabulous trails right on our doorstep. We love waking up to sunshine 300 days a year and to the incredible views of the beautiful and historic town of Grasse and the Mediterranean coast....
