The 526 sq ft (48.87 sq m) vine terrace has a natural roof made by grape vines growing across its length and breadth. This provides a wonderful dining area or a shady place just to relax in and count the many, many bunches of grapes that the vines produce annually.
From the vine terrace a flight of steps reaches the 443 sq ft (41.19 sq m) sunset terrace. This terrace is the perfect spot to spend evenings watching the day transition to starry night, dinning by starlight or simple relaxing in a place where there is no light pollution, just the marvels of the milky.
The pool terrace gives access to by 16 ft (5m) by 23 ft (7m) swimming pool and a mature, landscaped garden planted with aromatic flowers and bushes and the vivid colours of the Mediterranean.
The ground floor is focused around an airy and spacious open-plan fitted kitchen measuring 13.7 ft (4.25m) by 15.5 ft (4.75m). The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas hob and oven and also an olive wood-burning stove that in winter heats the whole of the house.
A door from the kitchen leads to a shaded porch and access to the ground floor bathroom with shower, washbasin and toilet and which is also conveniently situated close to the pool terrace. The ground floor bathroom measures 7.4 ft (2.25m) by 6.7 ft (2.05m).
From the kitchen there are two separate seating areas, a TV lounge measuring 13.7 ft (4.20m) by 15.6 ft (4.75m) and through the old Arab arch to a quiet seating area and library that measures 12.5 ft (3.80m) by 8.8 ft (2.72m).
On the ground floor there is also a large bedroom that measures 11.15 ft (3.40m) by 13.9 ft (4.25m). The bedroom has a feature wall taken as a cast from the Alhambra in nearby Granada.
