What I loved most about this property was waking up every morning opening the kitchen window and looking out over the olive orchards . It was like a postcard! The charming stone farmhouse was built in the 1500's , but you would never know it , as it was lovingly restored and has all the comforts of home including tasteful antiques and a stone fireplace. My other favorite thing was dining outside at the outdoor garden , we grilled outside by lantern light almost every night , it was magical! The fact that there was a swimming pool surrounded by well maintained gardens was an added plus as I love to swim! I also appreciate the fact that the owners are into green technology and utilize photovoltaic electricity! I am already planning my next visit back next spring , I can not recommend this place highly enough , you will love it!
