    Hi

    We are looking to find a country to film in that has an abundance of fruiting orange trees in late December or early January.

    The ones that are over here in the UK are pretty much non-existent so any help with where we could head to would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance
    Sam

    Dear Sam,

    SPAIN is definitely the location you are looking for, since late Dec / early Jan the orange trees in the world’s biggest production areas for citrics (Valencia, Malaga, Sevilla and Tarragona) are full with fruit AND we have the most stable and sunny weather in Europe during that time of year, with the longest days on the continent. Our company is local in Malaga, Alicante and Barcelona and would love to help you with your project. Please contact me under peter@frescofilm.com or my cell phone +34 609 50 87 88 and let’s speak about the project. Frescofilm has been around servicing foreign shoots for almost forty years now (originally Iberfilm), please check our web for credits http://www.frescofilm.com
    All the best, looking forward to hearing from you

    Hi Sam,

    South from Granada lies a vast and fertile valley encompassed within a bowl of mountains. In the 7th Century the Moors reached this place and named it El valle de Lecrin -the Valley of Happiness- a land rich with orange and lemon groves, almonds, olives and grape vines. In these lands you can find fields of a hundred-year-old orange trees. In January the Valley is already full of oranges.
    If you need more information please do not hesitate to contact us:
