In the 1970s the house underwent a complete restructuring and is now a totally independent and charming house with its own entrance, terrace, garden and pool. Five years ago it underwent another complete refurbishing. It has central heating, air conditioning, Wifi and satellite TV connection. The house itself is on two levels. On the first floor there is a living room, 2 bedrooms with a double bed each and a bathroom with a shower. Downstairs, a big kitchen with a table and six chairs can double as a dining room. There is also a bedroom and a bathroom with a bath tub as well as a separate laundry space. It sleeps six adults comfortably. A children's cot and high chair can be added on request. Outside a terrace will welcome you with a table and chairs for six. In the garden, the pool and sun deck amongst olive trees is equipped with umbrella and lounge chairs.
In both cases, the space is private to the house but the garden is shared with my aunt who lives in the house next door.
