Our house is of two storey split level building and we live on the upper floor as the ground level is an open plan to which we're awaiting permission to extend on. The main living area comprises of 3 good size bedrooms (1 with a double and further 2 bedrooms with single beds). We also have a seperate guest house alongside our main house and there is a double bed and also a settee which doubles as a single bed. The lounge/dining area is spacious and comfortable. There is television with freeview satellite (able to watch BBC programmes too), DVD and video player and a stereo sound system.
The views from our lounge is stunning (that of the Natural Park de Garraff) and there is a private outdoor swimming pool in our large garden. Dining alfresco is highly recommended within the tranquil surroundings of our garden.
