The farm had it’s own 2km private road, ensuring a certain level of isolation and tranquility which I really appreciated. There was little to do but sit on the courtyard patio, reading and soaking up the sun whilst listening to the sound of the bees and admiring the plethora of orange trees.

I never knew caterpillars travelled in groups like that!
