The current owners have loved every second here and it is a very reluctant sale. The village is a very rare and surprising find being surrounded by the fabulous rolling countryside, olive groves, vineyards and orange groves. The views from the lounge and terrace across the meadow offers a changing landscape from a great quilt of golden brown to a blanket of vibrant green with the constant dark and silvery green of the Olive trees. This fabulous Villa briefly comprises a large Entrance Hall, Guest WC/Family Shower Room, huge lounge area for entertaining friends and family with that extraordinary view shared also by the Dining area, superb, high quality fitted Kitchen with integrated Zanussi appliances (dishwasher, oven, hob and fridge), large, fully fitted Utility Room, Master Bedroom with En-suite, Large Double Bedroom with beautiful en-suite, 3rd Double Bedroom and a further Study/Bedroom Four/dressing room.

A large dry head height basement under the Verandah houses the pool equipment and also provides storage space for gardening equipment and other DIY tools. At the front there is a Large integral Garage with remote control door entry and a large workshop bench area and Loft access which provides a huge amount of storage space for all those items used infrequently.
The attractive Front Garden is fitted with automatic irrigation and houses the underground bulk storage gas tank and completes the outside of low maintenance allowing ‘lock up and go’ for those not requiring permanent living. Another superb advantage of this property is that included in the sale is a valuable Building Plot of 740 sq m. with current outline planning permission. This plot is adjacent and currently arranged as a beautiful well stocked and maintained garden stocked with colourful flowing shrubs, plants, roses and an orchard with olive, orange, pomegranate, lemon, lime, kumquat, fig, plums, apple, pear almond and avacado. Musn't forget the grape vine too. The garden has been set to low maintenance and is fully irrigated with the water supplied from the licensed borehole. The current outline planning permission would allow another property up to 250sq m. of your own design.
The picturesque centre of the village is just a short walk away and has beautiful well maintained gardens in the main street with restaurants, cafes, a library/internet cafe, doctors surgery, pharmacy, small grocery stores and a community centre.
