    All the interior furnishings are antique, and they work in harmony with the ancient structure of the house. All the finishings are of the highest quality, such as the 'cotto' pavements and wooden ceiling beams.

    The house is on two levels. The main entrance is on the ground floor, composed by a living room, dining room and kitchen. All the rooms on the ground floor have direct access to the garden via french doors. From the kitchen one can access the loggia and the pergola, each of them well equipped with tables and chairs for pleasant outdoor dining. The first floor is reached via an internal “cotto” staircase. Here there is a double bedroom with king size bed (this room is also reachable from outside through an external staircase) with an en-suite bathroom with bathtub and shower, a double bedroom with french size bed with en-suite bathroom with shower, another double bedroom , a twin bedroom and a bathroom with shower. All the bedrooms have window screens, and fans.

    The park spreads out over two acres and is home to a wide variety of plants and flowers that perfume the air. The area is mostly covered by a beautiful well kept green lawn and olive grove with 30 trees. The garden around the house is shaded by secular trees and is equipped with wooden sun lounges and tables. Near to the kitchen there is the loggia and a pergola perfect for alfresco dining, furnished with an outdoor teak dining table that comfortably seats 12.
