With three sun terraces for al fresco dining for 8, and a sun deck area in the garden - in full sun all day – and a wood BBQ the villa lends itself to a very social holiday.Upstairs: two double bedrooms both with access to the south-facing sun terrace benefiting from fabulous sea and mountain views, large family bathroom and study room.
