A private pool of 10 meters by 5 (32 x 16 feet) is located in the garden at the far end of the property (the pool area is equipped with several new teak sun beds and umbrellas). There is also plenty of gated parking available.
The villa’s gardeners are on duty twice a week and also look after the maintenance of the pool.
