Then, we go to the dining room, which can accommodate more than 15 people. Next to it is a superb living room whose walls are made up of wooden bookcases which offer a great decoration in addition to plenty of storage for books. This living room is extended by an office space, also very bright.
Still on the same floor, there is a large kitchen with a dining area and direct access to the garden and swimming pool. The ground floor also has a powder room and a laundry room.
Let's move on to the second.
This floor is made up of four spacious and bright bedrooms, each with fitted wardrobes. There are also two bathrooms. The main one is in itself a real work of art lined with marble and wood. The set is worthy of the most beautiful palaces.
