And the award of May’s owner’s photo competition goes to Rob Sands of Winchester, UK

Rob’s photo captures the ambience of Vagli in early spring; the outside areas have been lovingly brought back to how they would have been centuries ago when the hamlet was home to several farmers and their families living off the land. A continuation of the homogeneous landscape so unique to the area. No manicured lawns or numerous brightly coloured flowers in plant pots under every window, just indigenous species.

For those of our owners who have stolen a moment for themselves to rest and shade under one of our ancient olive trees, they recognise the selfish transgression when we mention “sunshine flicking through olive leaves on a relaxed body with closed eyes.”
