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.

Objective Advice Our sole aim is to match the right client with the right property.

The above benefits are not offered lightly. Red Savannah clients receive all the advantages and protections listed above, without paying a penny more.  And remember, apart from the inability to match-make the right client to the right property, ‘Rental by Owner’ sites could expose the user to fraud. The City of London Police’s National Fraud Intelligence Bureau, report that in 2016, fraudsters stole £7.2 million from 5,826 unsuspecting travellers via online scams. Why risk it?

*Best Price Guarantee applies only at the time of enquiry and before the booking has been confirmed and paid. If you find a cheaper price for exactly the same property on a like for like basis and over identical dates, and where in the sole opinion of Red Savannah, no substantive pricing error has been made or private discount offered, Red Savannah will match the price. This guarantee is valid only when prices are advertised and compared in the same currency. Please note that no further amendments to prices can be made following payment of deposit.
