I can't live without a lovely walk, space in the country but access to London where we lived for 20 years. We also retreat to the mountains where we take time out of our busy lives. We have the best of both worlds here. We have a lovely home in Hampshire with great walks and cycle rides from our door through Hampshire Countryside, dotted with lovely gastro pubs in the Georgian Market Towns in Jane Austen Country and the Swiss Alps for Skiing in Winter and Hiking in the Summer. We love to share our wonderful finds and hope you enjoy them too!
My husband is a fashion photographer and often uses the countryside in Hampshire and Switzerland for his fashion shoots. In both properties we have easy access to London Heathrow & Gatwick Airports and to Geneva & Geneva Airport. I am a professional coach. I think balance in your life is important and weekend breaks essential for relationships and families to share quality time.
Both our properties are perfect family homes to rest, renew, walk, eat and relax.
As we say in the mountains: "come up to slow down!"
