Nature & gastronomy
Orba is charming. A pretty and traditional village (cars are not allowed in the central, older part) where they still make pottery and leather handbags. It is 154 metres above sea level so the views are panoramic and you are completely surrounded by citrus groves. There are some good restaurants, a market and the church. Much influenced by its arabic past in its architecture and food the village also has castle ruins. There are fabulous walks and cycles (some very challenging) in the mountains without having to get in your car. Fine sandy beaches are dotted along the coastline and there are some serious restaurants for foodies within striking distance.
