This fabulous house is set in 6.5 acres of parkland and landscaped gardens. Approached through electric gates this is a beautiful private enclave which includes a second smaller letting property (The Bread Oven) and two rustic barns. The fantastic 12 x 6 metre pool is tucked into the hillside with secluded terraces all around. Say goodbye to stinging eyes and dry skin - the pool is a fantastic salt water pool - swimming without goggles is a joy!  The water is glass filtered and absolutely crystal clear!

The sunny terrace around two sides of the house is fantastic for outdoor living,with two dining areas plus a large built in barbecue. The terrace is shaded by an ancient almond tree and has an automatic awning to shade you from the midday sun!

Double hardwood doors open into the living room - completely renovated, wonderful exposed stone walls, terracotta floors and a monumental fireplace with log burning stove to keep you snug on chilly low season evenings. Comfortable leather sofas and 'Fired Earth' library chairs make this a great place for relaxing (the TV with satellite is hidden in a corner cupboard)

At the other end of the living room is the large kitchen/diner. The kitchen is hand made by a local artisan and has fabulous solid granite work surfaces - but best of all an AGA 6:4 conventional cooker - a real touch of luxury! The light oak dining table will extend to seat up to 12. A french door opens onto the side of the terrace and the smaller of the two outdoor dining areas.

Everything has been designed with quality and style in mind - not a atandard holiday house!

To the rear of the ground floor (but above ground level, as the house is built on a slope) is a rear hallway leading to two luxurious and spacious rooms, wih super king size beds, enjoying beautiful views of the garden and surrounding countryside.  Both the principle bedrooms enjoy the luxury of brand new fitted en-suite shower rooms fitted out with stylish modern fittings and fabulous travertine floor and wall tiling.

Stairs lead from the living room to the first floor with a large mezzanine area providing a second comfortable lounge with TV & DVD player, plenty of books and a great toy cupboard surrounded by lots of comfy floor cushions for our younger guests to enjoy their own space.


Leading off the mezzanine are three further bedrooms, usually set up as twins but easily altered to comfortable super king size doubles on request.  Windows in the eaves look out onto the beautiful gardens. Really comfy beds with crisp white linen and ample storage make all the bedrooms perfect retreats.

There is a second large bathroom with separate shower and WC opening from the mezzanine.

The outdoor space is great for everyone - whether relaxing under the pretty vine covered pergola, snoozing in a hammock, or enjoying a game of croquet, babminton or table tennis.  For the younger visitors there's a great playhouse and climbing frame as well as a wide selection of bikes for all.
