Your children are welcome to visit our chooks and feeding and collecting eggs can be arranged. Depending on the olive picking season, usually April/ May, guests in our cottage can join in the olive picking. We will show you how to pickle your own olives.

    The cottage is very well maintained and comes with basic, but sufficient kitchen equipment. There was plenty of clean linen, towels, toys and puzzles for curious kids. The major drawback was the proximity to the main road and visibility from the main house, driveway and road. Hopefully the beautiful surrounding vegetation will grow well offer privacy in the future.


    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry you felt the cottage lacks privacy! This comes as a surprise to us as the living area, lounge and deck all face AWAY from the owners house and overlooks no other houses. The distance from the house is sufficient and there are trees and shrubs between that allow for privacy for both house and cottage while at the same time allowing for security when guests go out, and proximity for contact to meet the various guest requests we get from time to time.

    Very calm area, surrounded beautiful olive farm with a duck family behind the cottage. We enjoyed every from the information the owner told us. I am very highly recommend this sweet home.. I wish I can be there someday again. Thank you.
