About us

creative  /  doodler of leaves  / Italophile  /  cat lover  /  tea drinker  

I am a professional graphic designer and enjoy creating art in my spare time. I live in the small market town of Eye in the heart of the Suffolk countryside.

meWith a passion for all things Italian, the family holidays nearly always ended up in a different part of Italy. I fell in love with the climate, culture, scenery, food, people and the relaxed lifestyle. And I love driving my red Alfa Romeo Giulietta.

I decided to buy a small piece of Italy and settled on the beautiful and unspoilt region of Puglia, home to the traditional trulli buildings.

I purchased Trullo Tranquillo in August 2016 with the intention of creating a peaceful retreat for couples. A place for guests to be close to nature, pursue creative activities or just escape to.

I have recently discovered the delights of Italy and I am particularly fond of the Puglia region. In these stunning surroundings we plan to run holiday retreats, eventually incorporating art workshop holidays.
