Thought has been put into every detail, making this the perfect option for a great family holiday, or for a get away break for one or more couples. To benefit from the views and tranquillity, The Designhouse has an upside down layout. From the driveway, the main entrance opens to a hall with stairs leading down to the bedroom floor and then to the living area and sun terrace with heated infinity pool. The Cubist architecture of the villa is complemented by a Le Corbusier chaise longue and glass table and chairs, Wassily chairs, EGE carpets and Paul Henningsen lamps in the living area. Spacious and fully open-plan, the uninterrupted panoramic floor to ceiling sliding picture windows display the wonderful views over the banana treetops to the sea. The contemporary feel continues into the red themed fully equipped kitchen with central island, off of which is the laundry. Both lead to the wonderful southern exposure sun terrace, which runs the whole length of the villa and features a beautiful heated 10m long infinity pool with waterfall. To take full advantage of outdoor living, a large comfortable sofa and outdoor dining table sits under a covered area for provides greater comfort in hot sunny days and balmy evenings. The Master bedroom with double bed, en-suite shower room is on the first floor, features panoramic sea-views when lying on the bed, and leads to both a private balcony and the shared balcony. The second bedroom also features a double bed from which you can contemplate the ocean, and leads to the shared balcony. The third bedroom has two single beds and also leads to the shared balcony.
