Garden

Villa Pnai is enveloped on three sides by a Mediterranean garden with bouldered terracing following the natural contours and echoing the verdant yet rocky terrain of the Gallilean hills. The trees, shrubs and flowers are all local.

Adjacent to the courtyard we have a herb garden where you can pick fresh flavours for the kitchen. Oranges, lemons, pomellas, pomegranates, plums and almonds abound, we planted these trees to commemorate the citrus farm that my brave grandfather, a holocaust survivor, established when he found sanctuary in Israel in 1949. An old olive tree, standing the test of time, overlooks the trampoline.

At the lowest level of our terraced garden we have dug a levelled-access 3m-diameter trampoline – children and adults alike are welcome.
