Layout Iris Residence is well suited both as a couple's coastal retreat or a family’s self-catered getaway! Besides the fact that the Residence is fully equipped, completely and elegantly reconstructed and refurbished with the finest touches of the best private homes, it also encaptures the simplicity of water, light and air in all its grandeur. The Residence can accommodate up to 7 guests in its three spacious bedrooms. Interior The interior layout of Iris Beach Front Residence works beautifully. All set on the ground floor, the 145 m2 Villa is very convenient for families with small children or older people. Entering, the Villa features a modern, open-plan area where the living room area and the fully equipped kitchen are located. Double doors lead directly to the private pool and terrace. Some steps further you will find the elegantly decorated bedrooms, bedecked in fine linens and cloud-soft pillows to ensure a blissful night's sleep. There are also two modern bathrooms, one of them featuring a bath tub and the other one with a shower cabin, providing the perfect space to pamper yourself after a long day at the beach and sea! Exterior Multiple broad and tall double doors functioning as portals inviting you to move seamlessly in and out. Lead through the wooden front gate and you are quite literally right on the beach, dig your toes in the sand and enjoy a wonderful seaside break. The 100 m2 outside area is a perfect haven in which to kick back and relax, whether it’s just the two of you enjoying a romantic escape or you’re sharing the space with family and friends. Allow your self to enjoy the stunning private swimming pool (6x3 meters and 1.2 meters deep), which is wonderfully lit at night, and relax at the grassy garden or sunny slate terrace to the sounds of the sea. Have a homemade meal with traditional local products and prepare it at the BBQ facilities available at the terrace.
