Set into a two hectar park, surrounded by mediterranean bush and rose gardens, this exclusive villa enjoys a breathtaking view of the sea and of the Spanish forts.
The villa is extremely fascinating and intimate, it is set into a lush garden and respects the surrounding landscape.
Close to the centre of Poto Ercole, the hill on which the villa is built has a beautiful view of the sea and of the Spanish forts.
The park covers an area of about two hectares completely surrounding the villa. It can be visited through paths that lead to gazebos, shaded terraces, belvedere, and spots where you can admire a hundred years old olive trees and various species of oaks.
The Garden is special, it has been designed by my mother, that is a landscape architect, and it is with no doubt my favorite part of the property.
You will be surprised from the variety of the plants and herbs.
The area near the house is properly landscaped and furnished with several sofas and tables that can be in the sun or in the shade of gazebos or umbrellas, perfect for relaxing or dining.
The swimming pool:
The private pool is a hidden surprise, in the same spirit of the villa. The pool is surrounded by a laurel hedge that encloses it in a romantic outdoor room, with a splendid view of the sea.
Around the pool there are citrus trees that makes it unique, with beds and loungers.
The villa has 5 double bedrooms, 4 with ensuite bathrooms, and a fifth with a private bathroom next to it. Each room is unique and has it's own characteristics, three are part of the main house and two are independent with private access to the front garden.
Every room is equipped with a fan and all the essentials.
The rest of the house is comprised by a very nice cozy living room with a fireplace and a large and bright veranda with sofas and air conditioning, overlooking the garden.
A few meters from the veranda there is a private pergola, with seating in the shade, like an outdoor living room.
The garden is a true extension of the home.
In addition, the large dining room with its fireplace is an important feature of the villa, making it ideal for dinners even in low season. It's also possible to eat outside under the umbrellas on the marble table that seats up to 10 people.
The kitchen has a comfortable seating area and direct access to the rear garden, which is very useful for outdoor dinners.
There is also a large terrace on the roof that with it's great view makes a perfect spot for aperitif when the sun is not so strong anymore, or a barbecue under the stars.
