Originally part of a working farm, the cottage sits in a small courtyard alongside beautifully renovated stone barns. It is a traditional stone built farm cottage with outstanding views over the valley. The cottage is in a small hamlet just a few minutes from the sea and the nearest village.

Circa la nostra famiglia

I am a retired psychologist, but sometimes still doing some training work on the mainland. I have two adult daughters, one in London and one in Glasgow.

Stile di vita

I am a writer, trainer and singer. On the island, I do yoga, read, write and sing blues/gospel and mountain music with local musicians. I travel frequently, to visit family and friends.
