This really interesting property is arranged as several letting apartments, some with bedroom, sitting room kitchen and shower room, others with bed-sitting room and shower. There is also an owner's apartment consisting of sitting room, kitchen, very large bedroom and shower room. With some minor refurbishment this would make an ideal holiday retreat. In total there are 6 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.
The land that the property is set in extends to over 32.000 m2 and is mainly planted with almond trees. The rest is hillside and, like the almonds, requires no work. One is able to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet along with the south facing valley views.
