The L-shaped building consists of two quite different wings. Both in excellent structural state yet quite contrasting on the inside. The two story left wing is of recent construction and features single open spaces on both floors, interrupted only by one row of columns. A good number of windows provide lots of natural light. The ground floor offers direct access to the garden and boasts the atmosphere of an antique orangery which is enhanced by it’s beautiful ceiling. The ground floor offers space to seat 170 people, the first floor can harbour 200 people.
The right part of the building is the original old part dating back to 1700 and still features many original characteristics. The ground floor showcases the original central entrance hall. To the left is the hallway connecting to the left wing as well as kitchen spaces. To the right there is an office space followed by a suite with sitting room, bedroom and bathroom.
The first floor offers bathrooms for the big hall, and a traditional palace style living area consisting of a living room, reading room as well as three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Below the roof there is an ample attic space which may serve as storage space. The roof has been completely redone.
The villa is situated on approximately 4.000 sq m of land. The property is fully fenced and an electric gate gives access to the convenient parking area which is lined with greenery and ornamental olive trees. A path leads between the villa and an ancient wall and onto a beautiful lawn. To the left the pool area is hidden at a slightly lower level and sheltered by both the brick wall and tall hedges giving it an intimate character.
