‘THE old farm was a mess. Some of the roofs had fallen in and thick bram­bles had taken over most of the garden. But a mag­nif­i­cent 300-year-old oak tree shaded the front pa­tio, while the south-fac­ing view down the val­ley, with a white­washed Span­ish vil­lage per­fectly framed in the dis­tance, was the kind I had only dreamed of. There were more than a hun­dred al­mond trees and a small olive grove — enough to pro­duce a few litres of oil.’
