Les Atulla and his wife, Yvonne, are a dream team. I met the pair in their beautiful home, which they recently built in East Tamworth. Spacious, with a distinctly Mediterranean feel, the house is infused with calm and quirk. Sharing coffee and chocolate as they tell me of their lives, they interject each other’s stories with detail amendments, small anecdotes and little jokes. This is a symbiotic energy that comes from spending a lifetime together.
