A wooden stairway links organically the two levels. From there, a corridor guides the way to the remaining two bedrooms and the storeroom. Both bedrooms lead out to north-oriented balconies, which feel like an extension to the interior. You can walk out and enjoy the heightened views towards the sea and the pool garden.
The real key point is the arrangement of the outdoor lounge – perfect for watching the sun set over the Aegean Sea.
