Surrounded by attractive gardens some way out of the resort, this property has a particular appeal to those seeking a quieter base. The architecture lends character with quaint passages and arches with trailing foliage adding to the colour. Although the nearest beach is some distance, the large pool area is well furnished and tranquil.
Clearly visible from both approaches, the tiered and staggered 2 and 3 storey terracotta coloured property with a low tiled roof stands above the road and is reached by a 200m drive which leads to a car parking area. Traditional 2-3m high stone walls line the perimeter of the grounds and are adorned with hedges. A slight ramp leads on to the entrance with a path crossing the lawn in front of the property to 12 broad steps and a broader path to the arch covered main entrance.

A single step leads into the double fronted foyer where the brown tiled floor and white ceiling blends with the pastel blues and greens of the reception counter and walls. There are clusters of deep cushioned armchairs and sofas and a small bar area. On the lower floor, overlooking the lawn through floor to ceiling windows is a large restaurant furnished with sturdy low backed wooden chairs and predominantly square tables.
The property features a series of intimate passages, corridors and stairwells leading through the blocks of rooms, most of which face the sea and all with large balconies or terraces. The carefully maintained gardens add to the character. The pool deck is located in front of the reception outside of which there is a bistro-style furnished area. The broad pool terrace, interrupted by the incorporation of a stunning natural rock feature, is furnished with sunloungers and parasols.
