From a very fortuitous redundancy in 2014, and a subsequent 6 week house sit in Umbria a whole new world has opened up for Philip. Having been involved in sales his entire working life, prior to arriving in Italy, he is now determined to seek out every little hilltop town and village in Tuscany/Umbria and is well on target. He loves finding those little off the beaten track places that are rarely visited and then sharing their secrets with Art In Voyage guests. An Australian, who has developed a passion for all things Italian, he and his wife Jackie are constantly on the lookout for that special place.
His top destinations:
His favorite retreats:
Hotel Al Ponte Mocenigo, Venice. Almost impossible to find without specific directions but so central to everything in Venice. With its blending of 1700’s Venice style along with all the modern conveniences, it is the perfect place to kick back and enjoy all that Venice has to offer.
