The property has been organically certified in the past, but as the owner has not lived there recently, certification is not current, although organic standards have been maintained.

The property owner wants people who are interested in organic gardening and healthy food production.
There are about 40 fruit and nut trees of various kinds in very fertile mineral rich soil.
Tenants required are for the house and gardens – if you are only seeking a house to rent this will not be suitable for you.

There is about 800 square meters of very fertile soil to the east of the house which was used for herb growing and now has six walnut and four olive trees, all still young.
The lease agreement will also outline sharing the work needed and the produce of the garden and orchard with the owner, the owner will pay the cost of that. It is very much a help each other and share the benefits arrangement.
Applicants must be interested in growing your own food for health reasons.
