Our specialists all have one thing in common… a pure passion for the Mediterranean! With years of experience between them, they have all traveled, experienced and fallen in love with not only our Scott Dunn villas in Mallorca and the south of France but a huge range of Mediterranean resorts too. Each of our specialists spends up to four weeks a year traveling to our destinations ensuring they know every detail about each hotel, resort or villa in order to be able to provide you with the best possible experience every step of your vacation.
When people think of traveling, they think of exotic places, but I think it is so easy to overlook everything that the Mediterranean has to offer. Whilst it is the perfect destination for a fly and flop beach vacation, there is also just so much to see, do and explore. Greece is a real favorite of mine – who knew that one country could offer such a variety of people and places, I love the food, the atmosphere, the combination of culture and relaxation and of course, the temperature.
I have spent years perfecting the ideal summer vacation with my children and have decided that the Med has it all for a fantastic family break. Enjoying water sports, tucking in to deliciously fresh cuisine and discovering one of the Med's many islands tick the boxes for both young and old. From the South of France to the islands of the Adriatic, the Mediterranean is a perfect destination that entertains and excites, time and time again.
Originally from New Zealand, I had always wanted to travel around Europe and in 2008, the dream became a reality as I bought a one-way ticket to London. I started with a quick taste of Europe tour, which only fuelled my love for the continent and ten years later I am still here, finding new places and seeking out new adventures as often as I can. For me, the Med has it all. Whether it's Croatia or Crete, there are few better ways to spend a summer than soaking up sunshine and culture right on our doorstep.
I'm not a fair weather skier, I'll ski/board in anything! Having worked 10 seasons in Europe and skied in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the States, I've had some pretty amazing experiences! I've heli-skied in Italy and skied down the ‘Vallée Blanche’ at midnight, equipped with a harness and ropes under the light of a full moon! Before joining Scott Dunn, I had my own chalet company in Morzine for 5 years. I loved the interaction with my guests and thrived on making their vacation the best!
My passion for the Mediterranean started at a young age when I was lucky enough to go on some great trips to different locations which mainly ended up being in the Mediterranean (after all, lots of shorter vacations are better and just one a year!). I have always been a keen water skier and wake-boarder so the Med always worked well for sun, warm water and the added bonus of being able to always find a great spot for an evening drink and a bite to eat.
After graduating from university, I have spent as much time as possible abroad including two winter seasons in the Alps, two summers in Provence and a third summer in Greece. have also enjoyed exploring some of North America’s best ski resorts including Aspen, Whistler, Vail and Beaver Creek. My most recent vacation was to one of the Scott Dunn villas in Mallorca - the only way to 'switch off' with a new baby and definitely the most relaxing vacation I've ever been on!
I have been lucky enough to travel to so many amazing places around the world. From backpacking in South America to heli-skiing in Canada, I feel like I have experienced a lot that the world has to offer. However, in my opinion, the best vacations are family vacations. Nothing beats getting away with your loved ones and enjoying fun in sun on a Greek island or boat trips around Croatia. The memories you make whilst all together, without a care in the world, are priceless and Europe offers so much within just a few hours on a plane. So what are you waiting for?!
I have been lucky enough to visit all of the Scott Dunn villas in Mallorca, the villa service was amazing and the food they provided was stunning, encompassing the Mediterranean style with fresh produce. I stayed in Can Lladroner which has immaculate and extensive gardens; you are spoiled for choice where to relax here. I spent a lot of time in the south of France as a child so this is a particular favorite area of mine in the Med. I am a real foodie and love to explore new cuisines, having recently returned from Turkey which was amazing.
Who doesn’t like the golden sand, fresh, food and guaranteed sunshine? The more of the Mediterranean I visit, the more my list of ‘favorites’ grows. I am keen on sunbathing, churches, shopping, food and wine- you don’t to travel long haul to experience all these things. I like to think I am a bit of culture vulture and have plenty of city breaks on the agenda- but really a few days lying in the sun always wins out!
The Mediterranean is perfect for a summer vacation; it combines warm climates, abundant culture, historical landmarks and the most exquisite beaches. I have spent so many family vacations in the Med, it offers everything you need just a stone's throw away! Croatia is a real favorite for me – indulge in delicious fresh fish, swim in cool blue waters and soak up the culture in Dubrovnik’s old town!
I first realised my passion for travel in my late teens when I went traveling around Europe visiting about 15 different countries. I was also lucky enough to have experienced some amazing vacations in Sardinia, Italy, France and the Greek Islands prior to that with my travel-enthusiatic parents. Having also been to Africa and the Caribeean I still prefer the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean along with the mouth-watering cuisine and fascinating culture.
For me, the Mediterranean has it all; nice weather, good food, activities and childcare you can have total confidence. On a family vacation, what more could you want? My family love the Algarve in Portugal so much we have been five times in three years! It's my top recommendation for first-time parents vacationing with little ones - it's like a home away from home.
