The villa retains its old charm in the front section and has been modernised with a sizeable addition in the rear. A meeting room for small gatherings or conferences is part of the package.

A continental breakfast can be provided on-site by arrangement, or a fabulous full breakfast is available at good rates at the nearby Esplanade Hotel. Line and towels provided.
