Among this peacefulness you will find the splendid swimming pool with infinity edge, measuring 10 x 5 metres with a depth of 1.5 m, slightly lower than the rest of the house and accessible thanks to a few steps in stone. On both sides of the swimming pool there is the solarium area, covered in stone, where you can find sunbeds, a beach umbrella and a shower with cold water. The house has a wonderful portico complete with tables and chairs, accessible from the living room, perfect for outdoor meals while admiring the view of the hills and valleys.
