Having both worked for the John Lewis Partnership for many years we decided to leave the UK in 2010 to manage Casa Leana and look after our guests full time.
We live in the UK during the winter months but throughout the rest of the year we stay in our apartment just outside Anghiari. This enables us to welcome guests to Casa Leana and be on hand if necessary.
We are both quite active and enjoy cycling, golf, tennis and gardening as well as exploring the local area on our Vespas or in our vintage Fiat 500. Leigh also plays football for Anghiari.
Having said all that we also enjoy relaxing with friends, going out for meals and watching films or sport as well as slowly learning Italian.
We are passionate about Tuscany and our gorgeous house and want to make your holiday one which you will remember forever.
Having re-developed three houses back in England from 2004 to 2008 we decided to turn our attention overseas. Casa Leana dates back to 1650 and we spent 2009 refurbishing it which we enjoyed tremendously. Our enthusiasm to improve our beautiful farmhouse and gardens continues on an almost daily basis.
We were new to this business and one of our biggest pleasures over the years has been meeting new people from all around the world, many of whom have returned year after year becoming good friends.
