My father was the first European producer of pecan nuts (carya illinoisensis), kiwis (actinidia), feijoas (feijoa sellowiana). But he also continued to produce traditional fruit in a biological way, as well as wine.
You will be able to pick fresh fruit every morning by yourself.
You will live next to the fruit and pecan nut trees, breathe the air of open-air country with average temperatures of 17 °C year-round, precipitation of 2493 mm annually, which means 310 days of sunshine every year.
