We visited Fogo Island, the Inn and saw the artist studios, June/July /13. The island's geography and plant material is stunning. What a treat to see Todd Saunder's architecture. The Inn and studios are fabulous. Also, it was wonderful to see the artistic use of local craftmanship eg. the rug hooking on seating. Ms Cobb is another treasure for the island. Congratulations.
