Hi there, Myself and my partner have been living between our house in Devon and our apartment in London for the last 20 years and love living in both locations. We love to travel and have recently been on a 6 month sabbatical in Italy and France. We like good food, art, history, cinema and walking. We enjoy exploring new places and love the Air B and B experience. We hope you will enjoy our properties as much as we do! Adam
