The living area consists of the sitting room, kitchen and a dining room and a guest cloakroom, comprising 63 square metres, and is a spacious, cosy and relaxing environment. A cream country kitchen is equipped with a fridge-freezer, cooker, hob, dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine, kettle, toaster and a set of cooking utensils and tableware. The dining table can sit up to ten people. The open space flows into the sitting area with a satellite TV.
On the first floor there is a twin bed white double bedroom with en-suite shower and a bedroom with a new country- style double bed, also en-suite with a bath tub and beautiful Italian tiles and fittings.
