The walls of all rooms are painted in pretty pink or pastel blue, juxtaposed against rustic cotto-tile flooring and wooden beam ceilings - elements that come together to conjure an atmosphere of old nostalgia with tradition. They can all be found upstairs on the first floor, made up of a Master Bedroom with an ensuite bathroom including a bathtub, 2 other double bedrooms and the final one that is configured with twin bedding. Meanwhile, the bathrooms possess the quality of antiquity like they were inherited straight off from the villa’s ancient heritage.
