one of which opens onto the patio and pool, each with twin beds that can be set up as a double; a large separate
shower room with toilet and bidet; a fully-equipped modern kitchen with breakfast bar; and a spacious, airy living room
that will easily cope with a sit-down meal for eight and whose sofa opens out into a bed.

and a hi-fi system which will play DVDs as well as CDs .
A striking terracotta-tiled internal staircase leads up to the flat-roof terrace across the full extent of the house.
