About Jane Urquhart

I enjoy meeting my guests from all over the world. I am passionate about nature and am so lucky to live in such a beautiful unspoilt part of the world.

I run my small bakery and tea garden at my farmhouse home and on Thursday lunchtimes we have live music in the garden for our customers. I have taught myself to play the piano accordion but really feel more comfortable playing the piano!

During the winter months I enjoy hill walking and overseas travel adventures.

Jane Urquhart purchased this apartment in 1997

Our Honeymoon was Magical

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a warm wlecome from Jane and a cosy apartment with amazing views from every window. The weather was glorious and on our first evening we sat out in our little scented garden,lit with fairy lights and stars and enjoyed an al fresco dinner and champagne. We hadnt realized just how stunning the surrounding scenery is and enjoyed the beaches and mountain hikes. We steadily worked our way through all Janes baking - delicious brown bread, chocolate cake and almond croissants to die for! We loved our week and hope to go back. Thank you Jane
