Our huge light and airy living room has big glass doors opening out onto a spacious top terrace, with two large dining tables and sun beds for all.
Here you can relax, sunbathe, BBQ your lunch, read or doze in the shade, fill a glass and watch the mountains change colour as the day retreats.
Our ground floor living space offers two big comfy sofas, dining for six, a modern TV, WiFi and British TV, a DVD library, music CD’s, books and games to help you relax and a wood burner for cooler nights later in the season.

Marble stairs take you down to two double bedrooms with king size beds [one en-suite], both having lake views, and a pretty bedroom with two single beds which offers the possibility of a parent/baby room. There is a family bathroom with a bath/shower on this floor.
All the bedrooms have patio door access to the bedroom terrace and down to the pool. The bedroom terrace also has a shaded area with basket-weave sofas, perfect for a peaceful read.
