Interaction with guests
The guest house is autonomous. I respect the desire of my guests to be independent and self contained. My own villa (a Tuscan-stayle farm house) shares the property (150m from the Lodge) so guests have easy access to my assistance as they wish.

I am a retired architect. My major interests are world travel, all things cultural, music gardening and anything creative! I have travelled widely and after 30 years returned to this beautiful region of my childhood. I have created Planetrees over ten years as a vision capturing beautiful memories/experiences of life lived in Australia and abroad.
I cherish great friends, good food and wine, the natural beauty, simplicity and freshness of the country, and my mini dachshund, Zsa Zsa. It is a joy to meet new people, to share the pleasures of Planetrees and this region and to see my guests creating memorable experiences together.
