The moment you turn into the narrow driveway of Villa Mimosa, you know you'll be enjoying a restful stay in a beautiful agricultural setting. Olive groves and orchards surround the property but it is the flora (and fauna of the domestic cat variety!) of Jackie's gardens that really impresses. The entrance to our apartment was bedecked with wisteria in full bloom and it was that intoxicating smell which accompanied wonderful breakfasts of strawberries, home made breads and preserves provided by our charming host. Inside the apartment was delightfully decorated and has everything you could possibly need for self catering - no need to go out and buy olive oil or vinegar for your salads, and just "borrow" a lemon from the back yard. The proximity to the extraordinary Greek ruins of Selinunte make this a perfect base to explore the region. Also, I left a favourite pair of boots behind and Jackie immediately posted them off to me and wouldn't hear of reimbursment. I'm just trying to work out what gift to send her to compliment all the lovely things in her beautiful home.
