We are a French couple who have lived in many countries around the world … United States for our respective studies in California and New York.
In Madrid, London, Lima, Liberia (CR), Auckland for our professional activities. We just recently spent three years in New Zealand but the call of South America, specifically and especially Costa Rica led us to Playa Tamarindo.
Laurent has known Costa Rica for over 18 years. He came for the first time for a solo surf trip. He fell madly in love with this beautiful country and it’s adorable citizens that open the way to the most incredible encounters. His love for Costa Rican made him come back 9 times and to set up a business a few years ago. His deepest dream brought him back to definitively settle there with his loved one.
In 2014, he rediscovered the country with his wife with the vision of setting up a new business in the hospitality sector. Agélie is a professional in this sector (having worked in 3 stars Michelin restaurants, Relais & Chateaux, Westin / Sofitel Demeures Hotel, Ascott group and fine luxury grocery store).
Laurent has evolved as a manager in the service sector, B to B, and Import/Export in all types of businesses in both medium to large and small businesses. All these skills will take ensure care of your well being as a guest.
Our past experiences have enabled us to perfectly master English and Spanish allowing us to communicate and share experiences with all of you.
