At present the livestock consists of sheep, goats, pigs, chickens and turkeys for the table.

This is a large farm that has given a lot to the vendor and his wife in the past but who are now looking to retire and be closer to their family.
The property would lend itself to rural tourism where the existing stone buildings could be turned into accommodation and maybe a stable where to keep horses. The land itself with its olive groves, rocky outcrops and cork oaks is simply magnificent. Local wildlife consists of rabbits, foxes, badgers, Egyptian mongoose, wild boar and deer. This is a very special place and is being offered on the internet for the first time by our company.
