102 in the Grove is a quiet, secluded and private separate accommodation set in an olive grove on a working cropping and livestock farm. There are beautiful views, and its a great base to explore the local area.
There are two bedrooms, one room has a queen the other has two single beds. There is a fully self contained kitchen with stove, fridge, microwave, cutlery, pots, pans, etc. The bathroom has a great shower, toilet, basin and washing machine. All bed linen and towels supplied. The kitchen and lounge are open plan looking out into fields. Sky TV and DVD player included. Sleeps 4 people.
The accommodation is very private, with own driveway and free parking. The hosts are a short walk away through the olive grove but are out of sight. You are welcome to join them for a coffee or tea, ask questions about the area or keep to yourself.
The property is a working farm, and someone is always not far away.

We really enjoy interacting with our guests but also totally respect their privacy. Guests are invited to wander up through the olive trees to our house for a coffee if they wish. We are usually working around the grove or farm and are more than happy to stop for a chat or show people round.
We want our guests to feel relaxed. As this is a working farm we ask that our guests respect this. There are animals around the place and at times there will be areas that our guests will need to keep clear of but guests will be well informed. Please let us know if anything gets broken so it can be replaced before next people arrive.
I am a qualified Jeweller and my husband Mark is a farmer. We have lived in the area for 35 years. We own a mixed cropping farm growing mostly maize and fattening stock. We also have approximately 1000 olive trees. We produce our own olive oil and have a licensed kitchen where we make pickles and relishes to sell from vegetables grown in our vegetable garden.
We have 4 sons, two of whom are beekeepers and we are currently building up beehive numbers on the farm and will be producing honey and other bee related products as the apiary grows.
We like to travel when our workload allows which never seems to be often enough. We enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and really enjoy hosting our guests. People who stay with us can be totally private or can feel free to join us at our house for a coffee or wine and a good chat.
