Operations Manager Tuscany and Umbria
The Italians have a great outlook on life and their good balance between work and pleasure is so important. Our love of conviviality, hospitality and sharing our passion for the country we live in just comes naturally to us. Tuscany has so much diversity, from the Chianti region with its world class wines to the peaceful rolling hills of the Val d’Orcia, not to mention the numerous UNESCO listed cities and magical coastline. Umbria, the green heart of Italy, is also well known for its natural beauty. The two main towns of Perugia and Assisi are a must for first timers and the numerous smaller hilltop towns are so charming you just want to go back time and again.

In Puglia the weather is fantastic from March to November, we have amazing food, perfect beaches and a wealth of culture at every turn. From Michelin-starred restaurants serving seafood specialities, to rustic trattorias serving simple pasta there are endless options for dining out; and for ancient history you will be spoilt for choice in Puglia, or why not take a trip across the border into Basilicata to visit the unique town of Matera with its extraordinary cave dwellings. Not only was it the European city of culture in 2019, but it’s also the setting for the latest James Bond movie.
