Originally from New Orleans Louisiana, US, Cristina moved to the UK, just outside London after a whirlwind romance with her English husband during his 1st visit to New Orleans.
After years of living to work, they decided to take a huge leap of faith, leave the rat race behind and opt for a simpler more enjoyable way of life. Having a true passion for entertaining as well as an arts and interior design background, and family in the hotel and spa industry in Mexico, Cristina felt a B&B would be a perfect venture for her.
Both seasoned travellers, they kept coming back to Scotland and in particular the Southern Highlands and the Loch Lomond area, settling on the Arrochar Alps for Cristina to begin her new journey. "There is just something here that draws you in, keeps you and holds your imagination and that I very much wanted to be a part of" Cristina often says when asked how she came to be here.
If you have any questions or would like more info on any of the many things to do in the area, please feel free to ask Cristina. With her Southern hospitality coupled with her knowledge and love of the local area, she is sure to do everything she can to make you welcome and help you enjoy your stay at Ashfield House.
