Originally from the United Kingdom, Ian and Laura have been running châteaux in France for nearly ten years. Laura moved to France with her family at an early age, where she became fluent in French and developed a love for the french countryside. Upon returning to the U.K. she worked in hospitality and quickly knew her passion for people would be her life's work. She became a training coordinator in some of the top hotels and restaurants in London, training staff in service, event planning, and health & safety. After having two children, Laura took a break from hospitality and worked as an administration manager, customer support advisor, sales manager and data controller.
Ian, a trained architect soon realized his passion lay in Music. He completed his Higher National Diploma (HND) in Music Technology and even released an album on Creation Records Ltd. During this time, he also became trained plumber and started his own business as a bathroom fitter. He is a trained chef and has enjoyed cooking for many of their guests over the years. Needless to say, he is a jack of all trades!
After marrying they moved to Wales where they ran a large B&B, which inspired their journey back to France. Ian and Laura have extensive experience in wedding production, event planning and interior design. The joy of hearing a satisfied customer's feedback and appreciation keeps them motivated to deliver exceptional service.
