Quality, not quantity

We have made quality of our habit. It’s not something that we just strive for – we live by this principle every day.


While our garden is currently undergoing rigorous development, we are proud to have begun planting a variety of produce. Our plot already boasts a selection of aromatic herbs such as parsley and mint, in addition to vegetables like spinach, celery, and cabbage.

Depending on the season and availability, we may have the pleasure of offering you our organically grown produce!


The property has direct access to the beach, facilitated by a beautifully carved staircase on the mountainside. Adorned with stones and shells collected from the beach, the steps are complemented by charming maritime ropes and fences, guiding the way down.

There is no need for a car. Descend the stairs to discover a beautiful beach that feels uniquely exclusive. The only other way to reach the beach involves a 25-minute walk from the nearest village.
