Terms of venery, or collective nouns, were all the rage in the Middle Ages. So what do you call a collection of islands?

Gavan Daws calls his book about famous people whose lives were linked to islands - Paul Gauguin, Robert Louis Stevenson, Walter Murray Gibson, Hermann Melville and John Williams - "A Dream of Islands", and what an aptly evocative description it is!

Your dream of islands will become reality when you book into luxurious VILLA MAMANA on tropical Telekivava'u.
