The Villa Olivia

The villa itself is a delightful structure; its unassuming exterior doesn’t take away from the natural beauty that surrounds it on all sides and it is only as you enter that you realise the wonders it hides within.

A modern two-bedroom villa, with a pool and sunbathing terrace, the villa also comes with its very own BBQ, perfect for a private barbecue on the dining terrace. The view of rolling hills seems never ending and is the perfect backdrop for a picturesque evening meal.

Villa Olivia

Inside is a spacious L-shaped living room, consisting of three separate communal areas: a sitting area grouped around the plasma TV, sofas facing a warming glass fronted fireplace and at the kick of the L lies the dining room. Attached is a spacious kitchen with all the luxury electronics of a modern kitchen, including a dishwasher, fridge freezer and an oven.

Of course, once you’ve worn yourself out enjoying all the wonders Villa Olivia has to offer you will be delighted with the bedrooms awaiting at the end of a long, relaxing, day. Both bedrooms have double French windows which access the pool and porch area with dream-like views of the surrounding hills, complete with a luxury separate shower room equipped with a rainforest shower head.
