You can walk down the River Orb within 10 minutes and there is a golf club on the end of the village that is open to the general public, boasting a bar and restaurant.
The focal point of the property is the South-facing, fully-enclosed courtyard garden with a private swimming pool. You will enjoy sitting on the terrace on warm sunny days, made complete with a glass of local wine, overlooking the swimming pool and hills beyond. If you want to kick it up a notch, this is the perfect place for an al fresco meal.
The house is ideal for teens and children, as it benefits from satellite TV, a DVD player and a games room complete with a table tennis table, table football and a number of board games, as well as internet.
On the ground floor, you will find the games room, which is a large room with a vaulted ceiling, table and chairs, double sofa-bed, table tennis table, table football and board games. This room leads onto the garden and swimming pool, as well as a separate WC and shower room, making the ideal hang-out for teens.
There is also a large garage providing ample parking.
On the first floor is a spacious open-plan lounge and dining area, boasting exposed beams and a very attractive fireplace. There is a comfortable sofa as chairs, a coffee table, satellite TV, a DVD player, a stereo/CD player, internet and a bookcase filled with a wide selection of books, maps and local guides - you won't be short of things to do here!
The dining area has a beautiful large oak dining table and chairs, together with an attractive antique sideboard - French windows open onto the South-facing terrace overlooking the pool, courtyard garden and the hills beyond. This is the ideal spot for al fresco dining on the modern outdoor dining table with chairs and parasol.
The modern country-style kitchen is situated directly off the dining area and is fully equipped with a dishwasher, fridge, freezer, electric fan-assisted oven and gas hob.
There is a large shower room with a shower and sink, as well as plenty of storage, a separate WC at the end of the hall and an airing cupboard where you will find a washing machine.
The first and second bedrooms are located on this floor. The first bedroom is a double and is furnished with a King-size antique pine bed, built-in wardrobes and an antique chest of drawers, as well as two bedside tables and a chair.

Once you venture outside, you will come across the private swimming pool of 7.5m x 4m with steps, depth from 1.2m to 1.6m approx. South-facing, the pool has beautiful sunshine on it for most of the day - at sunrise, and as the sun is setting, the walls and neighbours houses create some shade.
The courtyard is very traditional and has some palm trees and various Mediterranean plants bordering the swimming pool.
If you're looking for an al fresco meal, you'll have a brick-built barbecue at your disposal, as well as a modern outdoor dining table with chairs and parasol. Should you need a little more shade, you could always use the lower terrace that is very comfortable.
In resume, the outside space is a walled courtyard (around the pool) which includes a shaded area under the first-floor terrace. The other outside space is the first-floor terrace, that is accessed from the dining room and has external stairs down to the courtyard.
