Although not a particularly exciting few minutes drive from the road, visually the senses are awakened upon arriving at the property with its quaint almost rustic charm from the exterior opening on to a stylish, modern interior. Most of the facilities look out on to the large main pool and the extensive grounds which stretch down to the sea, a direct view obscured by trees. Although there is no beach immediately adjoining the property, there is a separate fenced off section over the waters edge with an infinity pool. There are some facilities for children although the property has more of a tranquil appeal.
From the track, a drive leads off in to wooded ground doubling back past a shaded car parking area. A short path continues on to a large red brick cobbled forecourt fronting a picturesque old 2-storey building bedecked with flowers and shrubs. An arched bridge crosses an empty moat to the glass frontage of the traditionally terracotta coloured building which incorporates the local stone work in its design.
Property type: Hotel
The doors open onto a large open foyer hall benefitting from floor to ceiling panoramic windows which open on to a furnished terrace. The terracotta tiled floor is bedecked with display units and large pots holding various plants. The long check-in counter is at one end with clusters of soft seating towards the opposite end with the resulting void between them creating a somewhat luxurious ambience. Steps lead down from the terrace to the restaurant on the floor below which offers indoor and outdoor seating on heavy lattice style furniture. Towards the rear is a well-stocked bar.
The vast lawned grounds are surrounded by carefully maintained flowerbeds and shrubberies with palm trees adding to the visual attraction. The large swimming pool deck, surrounded by a wide paved terrace and furnished with parasols and sunloungers, is overlooked by a second open-air restaurants with wrought iron patio-style furniture. Beyond this, the lawns stretch a further 50m with a path leading to a discreet gate on a quiet lane across which, behind a wicker privacy fence, is the second swimming pool, infinity style, with views of the rocky shore line in both directions.
