it is that time of year when we review our property and make plans to improve the experience that our guests have when they stay with us. Last year we planted a new garden landscape around the veranda in front of the house. In the Autumn we planted three cypress trees to enhance the Tuscan feel of the house and land. Many of our guests are budding chefs and enjoyed lerning new skills and trying out new recipes and then enjoying them on the veranda. A new Greek bbq was added to the existing bbq for those guests that liked to dine alfresco. New seating and outside dining facilities were added. This year we intend to build a picnic area near to the pool at the lower veranda. Further Olive trees will be planted as well as further plants around the main veranda.. The house was fitted with mosquito nets on all the bedroom windows to allow guests to have the windows open at nights. I hope everyone enjoys the new improvements and we welcome your comments.
