Throughout the villa, all windows are fitted with shutters and mosquito blinds. Each window can be opened fully, or on a tilt and turn basis.
The exterior of the villa has been extensively refurbished over the last few months, with the installation of a large, contemporary pool which incorporates a Jacuzzi, waterfall and colour changing lights. The pool uses a salt system which is kinder to skin than chlorine and requires the use of fewer chemicals. The pool incorporates a heating system, allowing it to be used throughout the winter months (supplement details on request). An outside shower is situated by the pool to enable you to wash off any sun creams before entering the pool.
The large terrace around the pool provides plenty of sunbathing areas, and large awnings ensure you will always be able to find a shady spot. Sunloungers are provided, together with tables and chairs for alfresco eating. The side terrace has a covered dining area, together with charcoal barbecue.
