Peter Stoneley's humour prevails as he recalls 30 years of struggle against: Greek law, when their purchase of Corfu olive-trees was declared illegal; Greek customs, when they drove an English car; Greek government, which wanted to demolish their house; Greek weather which undid their work; and Greek wildlife, which thought they owned the place anyway.

About Peter Stoneley

See more books from this Author
Born in Dorset but educated in Hampshire, Peter Stoneley first trained as a map maker before joining the Royal Engineers for his two years National Service which he finished in Kenya, during the Mau Mau uprising. After retraining as a quantity surveyor in the building industry, he spent the remainder of what he calls his "working life" gadding about various building and maintenance sites across the south of England. Some called him the trouble-shooter, others the troublemaker. Where there was trouble, there was Peter Stoneley. If it didn't precede him, it followed him, even to Corfu.
