There is also a large gas BBQ which we use all year round.
The plot (over an acre in size) is a mixture of lawns, flower beds and mature fruit trees (olives, figs, almonds and karob). The plot offers privacy and quiet whilst not being isolated. We have a number of dinning options, under cover of the pergola or close to the BBQ.
The outside is well furnished with sunloungers, day beds and great chill out areas.
We also have 4 mountain bikes available that are just are OK! as long as you don't want to do anything too serious.
As the location is rural a car is essential.
