Modern comforts are beautifully integrated in this unique architectural complex, which can accommodate up to 16 people in 8 bedrooms with en suite bathrooms.

Antique furniture, modern design appliances, traditional works of art, architect design tables and chairs and much more make for a refined living experience. The views across the valley are stunning and the landscaping around both houses stress local verdure including large areas of lavender which attract hundreds of multi-colored butterflies and honey bees. 

It is truly enchanting.

The 15'x50' swimming pool has a large, fully furnished surround. Many a guest has commented on the pleasure of sipping a good glass of wine before dinner while relaxing on a chaise lounge. And there is little the owner likes to do more than help his guests when asked.
