The Villa Is Born!

Having proven the quality of our produce we were determined to share a piece of our paradise with the world.

So, in August 2016 Justin and a very reputable builder (Mr. Tony Middleton) began to restore and convert The Villa into accommodation worthy of sharing with guests.¬†What were we thinking?Justin came from a corporate background, not knowing a claw hammer from a sledge hammer!

We would love for you to come and see it for yourself!

Our spontaneous decision to move from the city and live here was all based on passion and gut feeling, and it’s been one of the best decisions we’ve ever made.
