The villa is typically French in style with terracotta floors, arched windows and simple elegant furnishings. Inside, there are 4 double bedrooms, all en-suite with Gessi fixtures and beautiful tiling and practical yet luxurious design. Underfloor heating provides comfort for Christmas and mid-season guests. Two bedrooms have spacious private terraces, another opens onto the garden and pool and the 4th enjoys its own access from outside.The furniture and furnishings all originate in France, China, Japan and Indonesia and have been carefully chosen to create a simple but elegant Asian/French atmosphere.

Outside, the dining terrace off the kitchen seats 12 and makes an ideal place to eat during the day (when the cover of the oak tree provides welcome shade) and in the evening.
