On the ground floor the house contains a large living room with a big plasma screen, satellite TV and DVD player. There is an adjoining kitchen and two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Although the upstairs is part of the house, it can be used as a self contained flat. It has 3 more bedrooms and two bathrooms, one en-suite. One of the bedrooms has also been designed to be used as an auxiliary sitting room if needed, whilst the third contains two queen sized beds. This floor can be reached by an internal staircase but it also has its own external entrance. This floor also contains its own large kitchen and balcony overlooking the mountains. Outside there is a sheltered barbecue area overlooking the 12x6 metre pool. The house is surrounded by its own olive grove standing in 20 acres.
