Hello from Philip !
We are international citizens, having worked and traveled to nearly all parts of the world. We are also nature loving, active types who also enjoy the finer things in life.
Philip loves fast toys and pushing limits - an avid biker, car enthusiast, mountaineer, wine lover. Tuyet enjoys the quieter pursuits - yoga, tai chi, mostly everything organic. Luckily we both have broad interests and can enjoy doing all these activities. We also love good food and wine and exploring new territories in every sense.
Having both traveled for work and pleasure, we understand the little things which make a big difference for guests when traveling - comfort, convenience, warm hospitality, helpful service. We created LGAL, originally for ourselves and friends, a home away from home, with these things in mind.
We are very happy to welcome you to LGAL and hope your stay with us will be both enjoyable and memorable.
