Marie Laure grew up on her parent’s farm in Leognan. Her early life was spent tending to their vegetable plot and their animals.
Hardworking from the start, she split her time between college education and working to fund her studies. She graduated in Portuguese literature and civilization at Master’s level.
After a short stint as teaching assistant in Bordeaux, she changed tack and started work in the hospitality world. Very soon afterwards, she found a Portuguese partner: Miguel!
She joined us in 2012 soon after the birth of their son Diego.
Marie Laure can be seen everywhere on the property making sure that no spiders or “creepy crawlies” are allowed to establish themselves firmly! Like the rest of the team, she is a great cook and makes the most delicious “langues de chat biscuits” which keep everyone smiling during the harvest.
