About Austin Marshall

Sian and I took over the running of L'Agneau when my father had a stroke in 2012. We started by putting in the outdoor pool and have also fitted a new kitchen.

I am a Chartered Surveyor and my wife is Head of Drama at a local private school. We have been together since 1988 and celebrate 25 years of marriage in August 2017.

Austin Marshall purchased this villa in 2002
