I too remember this from the early 1970s. The dreamy idyll that it portrayed now seems indistinguishable from that of my own long-gone childhood. I was obsessed by the series,as I recall,in the same way I was by Dr Who and other escapist entertainments made primarily for kids. But this one had a different frisson,it was set in a foreign country,with cypresses and crickets and that kind of sun that you just don't see in England and which exerts a strange fascination upon us as a result. I still have the book which came out at the same time with a picture from the TV programme on the cover. It was never repeated on TV and in those pre-VCR days this gives it a magical kind of status for me!I notice it can be obtained on DVD now but I dare not rewatch it for fear of spoiling the beautiful if dim memories it still holds for me.
