There is also a single bed upstairs, which can be placed anywhere. This house is perfect for a couple, or for a family, or group of friends. The whole upstairs is the master bedroom which has a large terrace overlooking the sea. It is very private and quiet and one can easily spend the whole afternoon reading and napping in paradise.
