Location overview

In what began as an olive mill in the 1600s, lies the family home of your host, Rita, which has now evolved into a country estate that comes with generations of stories, recipes and secrets. As you delve into the culture and history surrounding you in the tranquil countryside, it’ll be difficult to not be transported to another time, where the white washed houses, little lanes, olive and wine vineyards, and blue sea surround you.
