The beginning....

We were pottering around the Mountain Pine Ridge area one day and happened upon an abandoned but somehow seriously wonderful house, set on a steep hillside near the village of Seven Miles / El Progresso, which was up for sale.

We weren't particularly looking to move to the area at the time - we were living happily in Sarteneja, and only idly pondering a possible change of direction - but somehow the place crept sneakily into our thoughts and dreams... We went back a couple more times, and eventually decided you're only young (and foolish?) once, and that we'd regret not giving it a go. And so we bought the place, and set about turning it into a bed and breakfast and organic farm. That's still very much an ongoing concern, but this is where it all started!
