What we like
- Design: The house is beautifully thought through, maximising the view and the light. The kitchen flows through to the outside dining and terrace.
- View: This is very much wine country, and the far-reaching view is of a patchwork of vineyards with olive groves dotted among them.
- Bedrooms: The house has been designed so that all bedrooms are equally good, with en suite shower rooms, and all can be configured as either two singles or one large double. All bedrooms can be cooled.
- Outside: The big, sheltered terrace is ideal for dining or relaxing, the pine woods give a shaded place to play, and the big pool with infinity edge can be conveniently closed off if there are young children.
Things to note
- Pool security: The pool is fenced and gated but care should be taken with young children.
- Responsive owners: The owners live on the same wine estate and are available to respond quickly to any problems.
