This house could sleep up to 6 people comfortably. In fact, this house could sleep 8 people less comfortably, but in this case at least two of them should be children.

This lovely house is the perfect choice for families with children, couples, groups of friends, pets owners, nature and long walks lovers, foodies and people who know how to enjoy the island atmosphere where friendship is easy to establish. And for all those who want a great escape into pure eco zone very close to city centres.

Located slightly uphill, the property boasts a spectacular sea view, especially at sunset. You can see the sea from everywhere, regardless of whether you are in the bedroom, living room, kitchen, even under the shower or on one of the terraces. You can also enjoy observing the sky with thousands of stars from comfortable sun loungers.
In this house cooking is a special pleasure because, while cooking, you can enjoy the beautiful view of the sea through the large kitchen window; right in front of the kitchen is a terrace with a big table and an outdoor sink equipped with a BBQ and there are numerous spices with their scents which invite you to pick them and put into dish directly.
The kitchen is fully equipped with various kitchenware and appliances.
Therefore this is foodies heaven!
