The dramatic transformation of discarded vineyards into the spectacular creation that is now Ludus Magnus has been entirely the vision and self-project managed venture of the dynamic French/Italian owner duo.
The enterprising couple packed up life in Luxembourg and moved to South Africa just a few short years ago, bringing with them their 3 children and all 5 of their precious dogs. Seeking exciting new opportunities and the pursuit of an alternative lifestyle being the driving force.
Flashback to life before South Africa and there's an equally interesting story. It all started when the entrepreneurial streak sprung at the fledgling age of 13 for one half of the duo. Treats purchased from a wholesale outlet were resold from a tog bag to delighted fellow scholars, fast becoming a school break time hit (and valued source of pocket money).
The rest, as they say, is history. A colourful one at that which progressed from self-appointed tuckshop vendor to hard graft selling pizzas and washing cars to entering the buy/renovate then sell property arena which became the key launching pad into business. Throw a pro-triathlete career into the mix too.
