Two of the bedrooms open to brick terraces with sweeping lawns beyond.There is a lovely outlook from the front terrace. The rear courtyard which includes the barbecue area and outside furniture looks out to the swimming pool.
The property accommodates up to 10 resident guests in great comfort and style.
