Overgrown by vines that provide shade in the summer. The main door opens to a hallway with on the right a lovely salon, to relax and sit around the fireplace in wintertime. On the opposite is the fully fitted new kitchen, finished in a rustic style, which opens to a large living and dining room also with a fireplace. All these rooms are finished with rustic tiling and beamed ceilings.
