Leigh Sassone

Smith24 Manager

My passion for travel has taken me far beyond my native five boroughs of New York: as a student, I studied in Scotland, Ghana and Spain. I now call Los Angeles home and, when I'm not behind my desk, you'll likely find me with my nose in a book, in my hiking boots on a trail, or with something new on my fork.

    It's perfect for those looking to indulge in delicious food, relax by the sea and explore the local countryside. I love the private walking path to the beach on this renovated 400-year-old estate, and incredible food served by the ex-El Bulli chef.

    I can't forget the contrast of the red soil, green olive trees and blue skies – and of course, the phenomenal wine.
