Additional amenities & feature info

During the designing and the construction of the villa we applied principles of ecological design to minimise the energy needs of the house and ensuring comfort in passive ways.
In this way we have constructed a house which satisfies our guests’demands and everyday needs by providing:
1. The incorporation of the building in its surroundings.
2. The thermic comfort bath in summer and in winter.
3. The cooling of the villa (withour air-conditioning), heating and hot water.
4. And finally, excellent conditios of natural of artificial lighting.
