This area averages about 300 days of sunshine a year so the odds of bad weather are minimal. The villa floor is stone tiled throughout making it very easy to keep clean. Choose to either dine inside or enjoy the weather and the view whilst you dine outside on the terrace or under the spacious pergola. This villa has five lovely bedrooms three (1 king size, 1 double and 1 twin room) each with stunning views of the surrounding hillside from the balcony which borders two sides of the house and ends on a large terrace and two (1 king size and 1 twin) on the lower floor. It has a large lounge upstairs with leather sofas and a new 46inch HD/3D TV. The lounge has an adjoining open plan dining area overlooking the pool. A stylish kitchen with dishwasher and oven/hob fully equipped to make your stay as enjoyable and convenient as possible. The lower floor also has an open plan lounge and kitchen with TV. The pool is heated by the sun and so is only really usable May to October. The garden has it's own olive trees and fig trees which you are welcome to pick if you happen to be staying when they are ripe. The villa is set in 1000 sq metres of Mediterranean terrace/garden and is quite private, with access to our hillside at the rear of the property which if you climb with care, offers truly amazing views. I'm sure you will be very tempted to stay and relax at the villa each day but if you fancy visiting one of the many attractions nearby, you will find it a very useful base for beaches, the skiing, the mountains, the towns and the historical sites. In fact there is so much to see and do in this area, you may well find yourself coming back. Special Booking Conditions: No facilities for babies and toddlers.
