There are approximately 20 Olive trees and 12 Orange trees, plum trees, lemon trees, plenty water in 3 wells, unfortunately one of the reasons why the property is being offered at such reduced price is because the garden is vastly overgrown, we foresee the cost of clearing it being in the region of 1000€.
