Perfect to regain energy and relax in a spacious, cozy and private apartment (1. floor). Designed in local traditional architecture with Italian touch, the apartment includes 2 separate bed-rooms (each with a king size bed, a bathroom, a fan, and air conditioning), a fully equipped kitchen, and a spacious living room with fan and view to the garden. There is a mandatory maid service for cleaning and preparing the meals, which is included in the price. The apartment is part of an enclosed and safe residence with a beautiful garden, private access to 2 swimming pools and direct access to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
