What an amazing lady! Mrs Qattan welcomed us warmly with juice and cake whilst she gave us an introduction to her incredible house. Apart from the stunning mirror work, she also paints and crafts that she uses lighting to highlight. The 'planetarium' is magical!

OK, so you've read some of the reviews on this and thought, 'hmm, not sure'. It's a fair shout. The place is quirky, and Lidia is equally unique. But what she has done over the years is most impressive, and if you get a tour...More
