Friends of chic

Lulu Townsend

Lulu has lived in France, Spain and Italy and speaks all three languages. She loves healthy living, watching her girls play tennis and anything that glitters. Shopping and eating are her favourite hobbies, preferably in the sunshine.

Roxane Gergaud

Roxane has a passion for budget boutique travel. From cheap and chic city boltholes or owner-run rural retreats in Europe to faded palaces in India and simple beachfront cabañas in Mexico – she believes that style doesn’t always have to come at a price (and restaurants with plastic chairs, packed full of locals are invariably the best ones).

Liz Wootton

Liz fancies herself as a somewhat intrepid explorer and has travelled across Asia, the Americas, New Zealand and Europe (although she’s still entirely lost without Google Maps…). With a passion for exercise, a sincere love of food and a penchant for adopting the local animals, you’ll most likely find her hiking up a mountain, tucking into some local delicacies or feeding carrots to a windswept pony.

Cormac Connelly-Smith

Cormac has travelled widely in Europe and South America, and enjoys holidays filled with history and good food. He is at his happiest when inside a Renaissance chapel, preferably one situated beside an amazing trattoria.

Sam Ford

Sam has travelled extensively through Europe, Asia, and Australasia. Enjoying a fast pace of adventure he always makes time to stop at a fragrant street food vendor for a taste of the local fare.

Daisy Finer

Daisy needs nothing more than her trusty rucksack to find adventure. Her favourite destination is India, because it never ceases to surprise. A real spa connoisseur, Daisy loves yoga and pampering massages.
