Here some more details from the board:
Shells in shells. That's how I could place our shell collection somewhere.
Sea view from the garden floor with iron gate.
Fresko over a door, painted by reputated painter 'Carioti', who has last lived in the house until he died in 1997.
Bouganvilla and cactus plants at the Restaurant Go, near Pizzo Calabro. That is how I picture my tiny garden on the rock.
Actually, the renovation has not started yet. Architects were supposed to make proposal, but nothing has happened in the last six month. Of course the main problem is that at the moment we are based on the other side of the world. However, my father-in-law will be on site in the next days and kick-off the thing. He will be there until we arrive in mid-July for a three weeks summer holiday.
