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. 'Welcome to our village. Meet Elpida who cures bad backs with a raw egg...Ajax the canny, death-dealing butcher...beautiful Eleni yearning for Dusseldorf...Mole's mutinous and frequently sceptical family...and Hector, their dog, a mutant specially bred to fight little children, who met his destiny on Evia...' An Englishman and a Greek village bond over bottles of ouzo, whisky and wine; finding each other sometimes bizarre, often baffling - yet always entertaining.Here is timeless, rural Greece - catch it before it goes.
