Join us on our “tree-change” adventure in rural Galicia. Leaving our city-based jobs in Sydney, and our neat suburban cottage, we travelled to Galicia in May 2018, where we bought a partially-restored 17th century house. We are now based here permanently, in a tiny hamlet outside the village of Ferreira de Panton, 15 km from the historical town of Monforte de Lemos.
Heath is a chef, with 30 years international hospitality experience, who cooks everything from French classic cuisine, to Middle Eastern, North African, Italian, Greek and Indian rustic favourites. Sarah is a freelance proof-reader and copy-editor.
We host writers’ retreats while we grow fruit and vegtables on our land. Our produce already supplies Casa Girasol with fine seasonal, organic, food, which we swap with local friends and neighbours. Chickens, a sheep and a pair of goats will be joining the family later this year.
We invite you to contact us. Come and visit us at Casa Girasol, and relax on our sunny terrace, after one of our writers’ events, or end a day of sight-seeing and wine-tasting in the Ribeira Sacra with a sun-downer beside the fire-pit in our garden.
