It’s All Greek to Me!: A Tale of a Mad Dog and an Englishman, Ruins, Retsina – And Real Greeks

A little whitewashed house with a blue door and blue shutters on an unspoilt island in a picturesque village next to the beach with a tavern round the corner…’ This was the dream of the Mole family in search of a piece of Greek paradise. But a beautiful view and a persuasive local prompted the impulsive purchase of ‘a tumbledown ruin on a hillside with no water, no electricity, no roof, no floor, no doors, no windows and twenty years of goat dung…’ In a charming saga of sun sea, sand – and cement – John Mole tells of the back-breaking but joyous labours of fixing up his own Arcadia and introduces a warm, generous and garrulous cast of characters who helped (and occasionally hindered) his progress.
