This property is spacious and cheerful, simply furnished and decorated to retain the traditional Belle Epoque atmosphere. Facing south for all-day sunshine, the piece-de-resistance here must be the ample outdoor living space, ideal for social gatherings around the barbecue on the terrace or by the lovely infinity pool enjoying the splendid, relaxing vista.
