Two stairs lead to the upper floor where there is a beautiful living room, four bedrooms, walk-in closet, office, bathroom and three closets. The basement houses the cellar, once used for winemaking with the original beaten earth floor still intact, storage room and laundry. The property features two natural stone paved terraces and two Italian gardens arranged on two levels and a delightful pond with goldfish and lilies. On the eastern side of the house, next to the chapel, there is a garden with medicinal plants, aromatic herbs and various citrus trees.
