Visits


from Kathryn:

What a magical little spot amongst the kiwi vines and lemon groves!

I was a bit nervous about the steep slope down to the spot beside the waterfall, so the hosts let me stay on the driveway of one of their other properties just at the top of the bank. It was a beautiful, quiet spot looking right out over the lemon groves towards the mountains in the distance. The sunrise was incredible and the hosts let me pick as many lemons as I wanted, so I made a delicious, fresh lemon cake in the van. The waterfall has a pool deep enough to swim and having this tranquil spot all to myself felt very surreal. There’s a small café/village shop about a mile away and the hosts themselves sell a small amount of their own olive oil, apple cider vinegar, jams and other items. The hosts also showed me an old roman bridge with an abandoned hut that dates back thousands of years as well as the beautiful village church that plays hymns that echo down through the valley. I had the most amazing, relaxing time here but I wouldn’t recommend this spot to big vans because the slope down is not only very steep but also has a sharp bend at the bottom, so it wouldn’t be possible to get a run up and may be very challenging for larger, heavier vehicles to get back up. But do chat to the hosts and see if they have any other suitable spots. They own many properties and beautiful pieces of land in the area.
