The garden is laid out in casual Mediterranean style with a lot of indigenous plants and birds and it leads straight to a beach with tranquil waters, safe and fun for every age. A big Roman style fountain is the first thing you meet when you walk out of the sea side door, while a number of reproductions of ancient Greek statues are placed in various spots in the garden for you to discover. Our fresh water swimming pool and the little children's pool is surrounded by fully grown trees and it feels like an oasis in the summer heat.
