We have the most amazing piece of property on our books. Its not actually in Voditsa, its in a little village 9k from here but its so exceptional that we decided to include it. Its a huge pice of land, in two sections. 16,500sq metres in one and 13,000 sq metres in the other. Thats almost 30,000sq metres - thats a lot of land and it contains 5 ruined or almost ruined houses.
But lets come back to the word ‘jungle’.
The bigger plot is on a hillside and is a little forest. On our first visit there, we initially couldn’t see any houses but then, after an hour doing an Indiana Jones thing through the trees, we found 3 houses. On the next visit, we found the others,
This land hasn’t been lived on for about 30 years. The forest is suffering from not being managed - parts are overgrown with a particualr pernicious creeper and there are geminated plums and walnuts everywhere - and its realy gorgeous. Its mainly oak, walnut, hawthorn and plum with lots of other lovely trees and bushes. Its not all sloping - there is a field -it was hidden and we found it with great surprise. Its about 1000sq metres and each house will have once had a house garden. There are two lovely paths through the woodland and a fresh water spring just at the edge of the boundary. It needs a lot of work, obviously as the houses are mostly falling down - once of them is repairable - but if you are into trees and want to get involved in sustainable woodland management, this is the place for you. By the time you’ve cleared the dross from the forest, you’d have enough firewood for a few years and some amazing wood to work with.
The other plot is on the other side of the village and in a similar state and very attractive but not quite so beautiful. You could sell this plot on as a seperate unit or it could be planted as a long term walnut and plum orchard.
You’re probably wondering why there are not photos of this lovely place - i did take some but its just trees, trees and trees. It was impossible to get a feel for it on the camera - you just have to believe me -its quite magical. And one of the best bargains you’ll come across.
