The terraces are planted with many pots of bougainvillea, roses and other local ornamental plants. Beside the villa is a delightful garden planted with seasonal vegetables, if in season the produce is available to guests.
Situated high up in town, naturally there are steps to climb but for those seeking space, privacy, comfort and above all wide panoramic views of the sea and of the village , the climb is well worth it.
There is no need for a car as restaurants, bars, boutiques and all immediate necessities are close at hand and a short walk or hop on the electric bus that runs downhill and leads to the town center and to the two beaches.
However, if you do decide you must have a car, paid garages ( to be booked in advance) are in the neighborhood Additional charge of 20 euros per day must be paid to the garage directly.
