Green fingers and orange marmalade

Well our lovely local agent Karyn, who all our previous guests will know well, has been doing a fine job ensuring that all the plants, fruit trees and shrubbery around Villa Kingfisher are growing vibrantly and strongly despite the hot conditions. Thanks to her efforts and our super man-of-all-skills Irfan,  we’ve enjoyed a bumper crop of turunç oranges this season which Karyn has harvested and preserved into VK’s very own delicious turunç marmalade which is provided as a small welcome gift for all our guests to enjoy with their morning coffee and tasty local bread which Irfan delivers fresh every morning…

 

Yummy. We even hear Karyn’s been dabbling with some apricot preserves for our guests and has had some speculative orders for some strawberry jams too, ha!

We like to have loads of plants around the villa – they provide not just fruit for cooking but also beautiful colour, heady scent and welcome shade plus a variety of taste sensations. Our collection of herbs is developing nicely thanks to green-fingered Irfan. We hope you enjoy these few shots of the villa’s delightful flora and fauna…
