    Olives time is now approaching and even this year I would like to share this great experience with others (also on my own I really struggle)
    The work involves laying nets, shaking trees and collecting olives from nets. Taking olives to the olive press. Possibly doing some clearing before and after. It's satisfying work and if the weather is good it means spending long hours in a green field facing the sun. If the weather is bad....well it can be a muddy business!

    Here it is pure, rural country life with the benefit of technology and modern comforts. The atmosphere is quiet and peaceful but at few km away Ostuni, the closest town to the house, is lively and relatively interesting.

    The sea is about 15 km.

    The weather is usually good, hot in summer and perfectly mild in spring. It can rain a lot in the winter.
