Access from the main road of about 400 metres is via a good track which is mostly concreted means that one can enjoy the rural location without feeling isolated.
A delightful country property situated in a plot of app. 6000m2. Originally a working farm with fruit trees and animal stables, it has been restored with care and attention to detail, to create a magnificent home while the stables have been reformed to provide comfortable and attractive guest cottages.
A gated entrance opens into the large parking area where there is a car port and from here steps on the left lead down to the two storey main house and, to the right there is access to the two guesthouses.
The gardens are well established and, very importantly, easily accessed from any part of the plot. They contain a wide variety of fruit trees, such as lemon, lime, orange and many more. One can enjoy what has been already created by the present owners but there is still space to add one´s own personal stamp to the grounds and plant some of your especial favourite flowers and shrubs.
