From the living room a wooden staircase leads to the first floor with a second bedroom, having two built in single beds, through which you can reach a roof terrace with a wonderful view of the sea. In front of this older villa, there is a charming sun terrace in the middle of the garden.

They are suitable for 4 people, and each one is entered via a patio with its garden furniture.
