The land is divided into 3 parts;

the north part, where we host campervans and guests, has an outdoor shower and a toilet. It’s a pretty green area with lots of fruit trees and bushes.
The middle part is where the greenhouses are located and where we live ourselves. The greenhouses are surrounded by a horse paddock and strolling area. Mainly sandy ground. This part is fully fenced
The South part hosts the water storage and has great views. It has its own access through a gravel road.

Next to the greenhouse, there is a Fiat Ducato campervan of 6-meter length, which has been home to many, with a 24m2 open kitchen attached to it. The van has no papers but still drives if needed.
