Access to the main house is from two sides: the kitchen and the living room. The living room side is the heart of the house where you will also find a small office with plenty of info on the local area.
The large living room with comes with huge fireplace, Steinway piano, sofas, tables and chairs. Because of its size it can be used for various purposes, reading, listening to music, watching a film and dining. There are 3 large sofas and 5 square tables that can comfortably accommodate large groups all eating together. Large exposed beams, stone niches, handmade terracotta tiles, wrought iron, Persian rugs, fine furniture and antique fabrics are part of the furniture of every room and give it its authentic charm.
The living room leads through to a small sitting area with armchairs, that then leads through to the kitchen and its rear dining terrace.
The kitchen is a full professional kitchen and extremely well-equipped with everything you need both for cooking and for your mise en place. This includes 6 burners, a large oven, two large refrigerators, tables for food preparation, two sinks and the real gem is the dishwasher that completes a full load in just 60 seconds (no exaggeration!). In addition there is a kitchen table available for breakfast next to a working fireplace.
A terracotta staircase takes you up to the first floor where there are three bedroom suites. This floor is connected to the garden via an external staircase which gives you direct access to the rooms without going through the living areas.
The floor consists of 3 bedroom suites, 1 living room with original working fireplace, and a large terrace with stunning viesw, where guests can relax for breakfast or a drink at sunset.
The first suite offers one double bedroom with en suite bathroom and a bathtub in the corner with stunning views across the valley.
The second suite is another double bedroom with en-suite shower room with access to the terrace.
The third suite is a very large room with direct access to the terrace through French windows. Tgere is also a sitting area separated by a curtain with a double sofa bed that can sleep two, and a bathroom en-suite.
Continuing up a wooden staircase you reach the top floor where there is a lovely mezzanine library: this is the oldest part of the house, said to be an old watchtower. It now offers the ultimate suite, sleeping up to 4 people. The room consists of a master bedroom with a double bed and a living room with fireplace and double sofa bed. The two rooms are separated by a door but share the same bathroom en-suite.

The room has a small kitchen, and its own tiny garden with table and chairs, suitable for 2 or 3 people.

From this floor, terracotta stairs lead to the second suite, a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower. The room also benefits from a kitchenette with refrigerator.
