The Story: Villa Namouna - Beaulieu-sur-Mer, France

our new homeThose of my friends who have known me for a long time have repeatedly heard me say that  some day i would live in France. And, of course that meant either living in Paris or La Côte d'Azur.

Living in London has been wonderful and having done it for more then twenty years I thought that it was time to make the move to finally live out that dream!

So as of May 2011, my partner (and now wife) Jane and I moved to France and are now living in Beaulieu-sur-Mer, about 5 km from Nice on the way to Monaco.

We''re living in a lovely apartment in a villa - Villa Namouna, which was built by a famous American playboy, Gordon Bennett (founder of the International Herald Tribune).  It's small, but perfectly formed and what a view!

May all YOUR dreams come true...


PS: After 5 wonderful years at Villa Namouna we have returned to the UK and now live back in my flat in London.
