It is our goal to establish a wild life friendly environment around the villa. In particular we wish to encourage butterflies and bees and a variety of birdlife. with this in mind we sowed wild flower seeds and meadow grasses in early summer this year in two areas at the edge of the lawns. by September/October these were providing a diverse selection of small plants. These two areas have been trimmed right back to the ground and a further selection of wild flower seeds and mixed grasses added. It is hoped that with careful management the areas will provide prolific colour during next spring and summer, as well as attracting new wildlife.
