As any farmhouse the ground floor was originally used as stable and storage. The external staircase however leads up to a lovely home with two good size bedrooms, a bathroom with bath and a dine-in kitchen with fireplace. Both the kitchen and one of the rooms open to the balcony which is a perfect place for outdoors meals, drink or relax. All floors are of hand made cotto while the windows feature wooden shutters. The atmosphere is very pleasant and cottage style. There is plenty of natural light creating an bright yet cosy home.
As in the past only part of the foundations have been reinforced the house is slightly off balance. As a result there are crack in various upstairs walls. In order to resolve this problem the other foundation parts have to be reinforced as well. Should one desire to recuperate the ground floor spaces another intervention is needed in order to gain height.
