The first treasure of the enchanted place is nature. A mix of colors, the blue from the sea and sky and the slopes,  colors oscillating between the grapevine’s green and the white houses surrounded by the oak forest, maritime pines, Alep pines and olive trees.

Walking through this nature enriches us.
