A warm and comfortable converted mansion that unlike many of its competitors is relatively close to the resort centre. Preferred by those who do not want to climb steep hills at the back of town, the property has splendid views along the coast and an enviable show of tasteful decor and attractive gardens.
An attractive converted farmhouse style mansion, dating back to 1840. A modern looking 3-storey extension was added in 2000 but both sections blend well, especially as the newer section has narrow balconies with views over the garden. Shutters add character to the original building and a short drive leads up to the narrow front entrance.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Rooms in the extension
Built Year: 1840 & 2000
The stylish and elegant interior takes on the image of an English country house with a comfortable and welcoming lobby and a spacious lounge with deep sofas and easy chairs. A conservatory style extension accommodates more comfortable furnishings whilst the spacious restaurant has floor to ceiling windows with views out over the pool and garden.
A 1st floor roof terrace is entered through the conservatory and a narrow pool surround accommodates a collection of green sunloungers and off white parasols. An attractive walkway is formed by a tunnel of colourful bougainvillea and the mature trees of the garden provide some shade to the neat borders and lawns.
