It is the perfect setting for those wishing to relax and experience the local fine climate to its fullest. Moments away from the villa there is a bustling resort town with all kinds of amenities and a long 9 km sunlit sandy beach.

The Longhouse is an airy hilltop villa unobstructedly overlooking the vastness of the blue sea, the mountains and the blue Mediterranean sky above. It is spacious and uncluttered designed with a strong Asian influence utilizing the principles of Feng Shui to create a beautiful and calm zen-like sanctuary, in harmony with its natural environment. It offers numerous features to interest and amuse, whilst providing essential comfort and utility. Clean and crisp construction lines please the eye, whilst unexpected tree-filled courtyards and hidden windows add subtlety.
Main House
The heart of the house is a massive open plan living and dining room with kitchen adjacent. This space has huge floor to ceiling picture windows and sliding glass doors front and back giving amazing views and exceptional light. The picture windows open onto the front terrace with sea views, and onto the hidden rear terrace and pool. The living room is decorated with original artwork specially commissioned for the house, and a 1949 BSA motorcycle (which Alex, the owner, considers to be 'art'). Wanting to surprise, Alex designed two hidden open air courtyards inside the house either side of the living room, separating this space from the sleeping quarters.

The master suite, built around its own private courtyard, comprises a double bedroom and separate dressing room, an en-suite bathroom with walk in shower, and a sauna. The second bedroom of the house is on the other side of this courtyard with a double bed and an en-suite bathroom as well.

At the other end of the house, around the other courtyard is the third bedroom with its en-suite bathroom and walk in shower, a fully fitted media and entertainment room as well as the main entrance to the house. The house also includes a library and a laundry room with a washing machine and a tumble dryer.
