Gravelled with a wooden surround, perfect for those wishing to while away an hour or two.

However there is plenty of space for keeping horses etc. or even having a few cabanas (subject to any approval that might be needed). The land has many widely spaced Olive trees that provide an excellent crop of Olives each year.
At the front of the property is an Agricultural Ruin with the possibility of exploring further avenues, subject to any necessary permissions/planning.
