At the side of the house is a small garden with a path that leads you to the lovely private pool with external summer kitchen and bbq.
The kitchen is very well equipped, with all crockery, cutlery and kitchen appliances including oven, hob, dishwasher, fridge and freezer, toaster, coffee-maker etc. In addition to the dining table and chairs inside there is additional seating for eating outdoors either on the front terrace or down by the pool.

The outdoor swimming pool is a really good size, 10.5 x 4.5 metres (approx 35 x 15 feet) and fully enclosed by a wall/security fence with gated access. The pool area is quiet and secluded with plenty of space for sunbathing or for eating al fresco, as it also benefits from a outdoor summer kitchen which includes fridge, sink and bbq plus an outside shower room and wc. No need to go back indoors for anything! The garden has an original well (covered), palm trees, bamboo, french lavender beds and flowering oleander shrubs. There is also a large leafy south facing terrace to the front of the house, very private, ideal for breakfast or enjoying the sun going down in the evenings.
Underneath the house (connected by a spiral staircase) is a huge garage & the original wine cellars, with parking for up to 2-3 cars.
