    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    This recently completed villa offers spacious, well-designed and beautifully presented holiday accommodation.

    The property, now fully renovated, was once part of a wine merchant's estate. (The owners live in the grounds in the main house which has its own separate garden.)

    The villa comprises a large, well-equipped kitchen and separate dining area opening out through glass doors onto the delightful sun terrace and pool area. Upstairs is a spacious and comfortable sit...
