The owners take great pride in the outside areas and over the years have worked hard to design and cultivate a beautiful garden which is a stunning rainbow of colour for most of the year round, complete with roses, oleander, orange trees, lemon trees and grape vines. The gardens are beautifully lit at night with the gentle tinkle of the fountain centrepiece. Nestled within the rose gardens is a moroccan style sun terrace complete with dining area, pool table, brick built barbecue and bar.
The villas also share a very large 10x5 swimming pool which is fed by underwater mountain spring water. Possibly the cleanest and freshest swim you will ever have. Surrounding the pool is a large sun terrace where you can relax on the sun loungers provided and shaded areas for relief from the spanish sun. The pool area is very large.
