    NEWS - OLIVE HARVEST IN NOVEMBER!!!
    Our place once was a farm for horse breeding and is today a place that accommodates elderly and retired horses having a good life on the vast fields sorrounding the farmhouse. The house is located on top of a hill forested by ancient olive trees overlooking the countryside, hosting holiday guests in two apartments.
    Besides olive oil, the production of goods is mainly concentrated on elixirs and cures gained from medical plants following traditional techniques free from chemistry. The propagation of a holistic perception of healthiness is our main philosophy.

    Help

    Taking care of the animals by feeding the ten horses, two donkeys and five dogs is daily business. Usually there is any kind of maintenance to do on the estate like repairing fences or furniture in the guest apartments. Depending on the season there is help needed for harvesting olives, grapes, herbs or wood.
