At the front is a conservatory and beyond it is a livingroom, a diningroom, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms. Space beneath the villa is currently used as a store, but it could house more living space. There is a roof terrace. The house is in the residential Camposol golf development, set in a valley.
