I am a sculptor and my wife is a university lecturer. We came to Gozo for a holiday in 1988 and fell in love with its unspoilt beauty, rustic charm, and the friendliness of the people. I also fell in love with the local limestone which was lovely to carve. We bought our present villa and spent many years converting the derelict farmhouse into what it is today. A labour of love!
