Outside, there is a private swimming pool (9m x 6m) with an inset hydro-massage tub. Behind the pool area, accessed either from outside or inside the villa, is a gorgeous interior swimming pool and "wellness area." The pool (3.7m x 7m) has hydromassage, a waterfall, and chromium therapy lights. There is also a sauna, and a shower room for washing off. The pool is bordered on one side by a large window looking out onto the external pool. The villa itself has an upstairs terrace with outdoor dining overlooking the view. Finally, there is a stone-built barbecue and a wood oven.
Ground Floor: The entrance of this villa leads into the living room, where there are several armchairs arranged around a cozy fireplace and flat screen satellite TV. There is also a stereo, DVD player, and a sound system that extends throughout the house. A sliding glass door leads out onto a 70 m2 panoramic terrace, furnished with tables and chairs for outdoor dining. There is also a built-in brick bench with cushions. Back inside, the living room leads into the dining room, where there is a table seating eight set in front of a large panoramic window. Further on, there is a small breakfast table just outside of the kitchen, which is equipped with a dishwasher, electric oven, cook-top, toaster, and kettle.

A small iron staircase of 18 steps descends from here into the wellness center, including the indoor pool.

Could not have been better. Super.
The pool was very private, the rooms were beautiful, the views of the distant lake and valleys and mountains were awesome. Marta, the manager was very helpful and did everything to make our stay wonderful. The air-conditioners worked great.
Restaurants nearby. Easy to get to numerous places to visit.
