About the home
The Barn is so called because it originally started it's life as a place to store hay & grain for our horse, donkey, goats & chickens. However, as we gradually switched our source of income from animals and an organic garden to providing accommodation for those looking for peace and quiet, we slowly converted the Barn into the modern house which it has now become.
It is surrounded by fruit trees, oleanders, Virginia creeper, vines & flowering shrubs. There is a large shady patio & another sitting area under the shade of a large pine tree.
We have incorporated as much wood, terra-cotta & native materials as was possible during the conversion & it has developed a distinctive character all of it's own.
