Exeter Chiefs coach Julian Salvi and his playing colleague Moray Low love the South Devon seaside resort of Teignmouth so much they have made a film about it, as MARC ASTLEY explains. Read on to find out how you can win the tickets!

It might not quite have the year-round Bondi climate, but Australian-born rugby coach Julian Salvi still counts Teignmouth among his favourite beaches.

The father of three and his family have been regulars at the popular seaside resort since moving to Devon three years ago. It was one of the first beaches Julian and his wife Emma discovered when they arrived in the county and it has been a firm favourite ever since.

The former player is so fond of the area that that when he recently launched a property development company, Tomahawk Homes, with Chiefs colleague Moray Low, they built their first house in nearby Bishopsteignton.

Teignmouth is the ‘go-to’ beach for Julian and Moray and their families but it is more than the sand and sea that they find appealing.

“It’s a great town, especially if, like us, you have young children,” says Julian. “They love the skate park, the walk along the front (with an ice-cream, of course) and the variety of places to eat and drink that are kiddie friendly.”

Julian joined the Exeter Chiefs as a player in 2015 before switching to coaching at the end of last season. His colleague and business partner Moray is still on the playing staff. The front-row forward is a Scotland international with 37 international caps to his name. He too is a fan of Teignmouth and its people.

“Because of its size, you quickly get to know people around the town like Paul who runs the Crab Shack and Laura at the art gallery,” adds Moray.

“We also love taking the passenger ferry across to Shaldon from the Back Beach slipway.”

Julian and Moray have now become such become familiar faces around Teignmouth that they have made a promotional video on behalf of local property agents, Complete, extolling the town’s virtues.

“When we started thinking about setting up the property development business, Will Smith, the Managing Director, at Complete offered to mentor us,” explains Julian.

“He and his team are all about loving the locations they work in and are producing a number of films showcasing the people and places that define Complete.

“When Will asked us to appear in the Teignmouth video we were more than happy to repay the favour.”

In the video, Julian and Moray can be seen talking to, among others, Paul Matthews owner of the Crab Shack, and Sam Chisholm, centre manager and chief instructor at Sea Sports South West.

Moray says he and Julian really enjoyed getting to know better some of the local characters they had knew from previous visits.

He adds: “The thing that really struck us was just how passionate people are about the town. There is a genuine enthusiasm and sense of pride there.

“We also noticed how close-knit the business community are and how keen they are to support each other.”

Complete Property has offices in Teignmouth, Bovey Tracey, Newton Abbot, Exeter and London. However, with the launch of their new premises in the town, Complete decided that the first film should feature Teignmouth.

Will Smith reveals: “Through working with Julian and Moray, I was aware of their passion for Teignmouth and the surrounding area and they were my first choice when it came to presenting our first video.”

The new ‘Complete People’ campaign celebrates Complete’s customers and the people who make the places where they sell property so special.

“For us, ‘Complete’ is more than just a name. It’s an ethos to provide all our customers with the most complete service possible and help them to feel supported and informed throughout, whether they are buying or selling a property” adds Will.

“Shooting these location videos is part of that philosophy. If we can market our properties, support local businesses and promote the town all at the same time, it’s a win, win, win!”
