This beautifully designed home is the brainchild of a young local architect. The glass and steel ‘floating’ structure has an indoor tropical garden and views soar from every room. Donatello, an expert on the area, will greet you and is on hand for anything: wine-tastings, private guides and chefs, yoga or cooking classes can also be set up with a bit of notice.
There are two main living rooms, one with a hanging fireplace downstairs by the open-plan kitchen and dining space and the other upstairs so those in need of peace can escape with a book. A welcome hamper includes a bottle of wine and there’s a good coffee maker with capsules. You’re surrounded by much greenery, a wisteria and jasmine covered pergola for outdoor eating, plenty of places to sit and a wonderfully long slimline pool for perfect laps. There’s a pizza oven down here too.
Drive to beaches in ten minutes, or to coastal restaurants in the evening for fresh seafood.
