Once a watch tower with an adjoining fortified farmhouse, with 11th century origins, the property was beautifully restored in 2004 with spacious light modern interiors, sandstone flooring and a spectacular glass encased external staircase tower. The property is approached via a short driveway lined with holm oaks that leads into a large paved courtyard with a fountain, surrounded by a mature garden with ancient olive trees and Mediterranean plants. The grounds are extensive and property's wonderful hilltop position provides fabulous 360 degree views. With its large 18m x 4m infinity pool, vaulted pool house, Romanesque features, classic modern interiors and convenient position on the estate, this is a unique property located within easy distances of some of the greatest highlights of the region.
