Having moved to Catalunya, Spain in 2003 under subtle, yet not-so-subtle, coercion by Charles, she is passionate about the Catalan and Spanish culture and is genuinely honored to design peoples’ holiday in Catalunya, Madrid and central Spain. As busy as she is with their three children, she has become the contact and point of reference for many companies and countless agents around the globe.
