Situated on a hillside, the views are superb over the surrounding countryside with the mountains in the background.
The house is surrounded by a well maintained lawned garden with olive trees, lavender and herbs and a large swimming pool (15 x 6m, heated on request). Built of local stone with grey shutters and recently beautifully restored throughout, the accommodation consists of a main house and a dependence on the other side of a central courtyard. In total if offers 1500 m2 of living space with the light and spacious rooms opening to terraces on one side, and the courtyard on the other.
The interiors are of an exceptionally high standard and decorated in subtle shades of beige and grey throughout, with polished cement floors, white ‘distressed effect’ ceiling beams, tadelakt bathrooms and cream furnishings. Glass doors open up right along the front of the very large living room to a furnished terrace overlooking the garden and pool.
