Enjoy the beautiful sunsets, the starry night sky away from the beaten track, in the idyllic village, 2,5 km far from the sea - but only 5 minutes by car. The idyllic country house was built in 1906 , in a quiet surrounding ,next to the village church. Villa Lavanda was built by our grandfather Peter, who spent 20 years as a gum digger in New Zealand to earn money for the house, destroyed in 1962 by an earthquake and renovated by my husband and me we with love. It is comfortable,restored with love for a detail. The rooms are large with traditional,thick,stone walls, which provide a cozy atmosphere. The house extends over three floors with balconies ,from which you can enjoy the romantic sunset with a glass of wine.There is a spacious,rustic kitchen,which leads out to the garden full of rosemary, lavender and laurel.
