As art students we lived here in this beautiful part of Sicily for 6 months and 40 years later when our daughters had flown the nest, Mike and I left our life in England and moved over here to live. I have always enjoyed making things and one of the nicest things has been learning from the older village residents how to use local plants to make baskets. The thing I enjoy making most of all is the extra virgin organic olive oil from our own trees.
I’m keen on travelling. Camping and inter railing when younger and back packing across Africa and Southern India more recently. When possible I choose a small family B & B that offers good value rather than anonymous hotels.
