I read this post on French Essence.
I'd like to show where olive trees I wrote about grow.
Here You are the small village where the family of my friend live. As You can see is a kind of Castle (a Rocca) just up to a hill surrounded by olive trees, wood and fields.
It is located in Umbria at the heart of Italy.
The climate is right for olive trees, not too cold in winter and not too hot in summer (sometimes in August it was so cold we had to light up the fireplace) and for humans too! I must confess I'd like to live there...maybe one day.
So far I only act as a tourist and as a farm worker too!
