As you walk past our lemon tree you step onto the front terrace, which catches the morning sun. We have furnished this terrace with a table and chairs, a great spot for breakfast. The key to the villa can be found in a wall mounted key safe by the front door. As you enter the villa immediately to your right is a cupboard, which houses the wall safe, a great place to store your passports etc. Also on the right is the door to the downstairs cloakroom.

This terrace has been furnished with a large table and reclining chairs with cushions. It is possible to view the mountains and the sea from this terrace. We have provided a basic barbeque for guests which can be placed on the grass at the back of the villa, charcoal and fire lighters can be bought locally.
