apanna, a luxury villa, is based on a watch tower four centuries old. Two tobacco barns were added later. It is built in a game reserve designated as one of outstanding natural beauty. The villa has been converted to a high aesthetic standard by its designer owner, but it still retains its old character. Soaring wooden beamed ceilings and exposed stone walls merge with cool terracotta and granite floors. It is tastefully furnished with a blend of contemporary and traditional styles.
A large distinctive private swimming pool with travertine paving is set on a terrace and has breathtaking views. There's a shallow end of the pool for young children. The grounds have different levels of paving with extensive plantings of cypress, cherry, olive trees, acanthus, yuccas, etc. Wooden shutters keep the house nice and cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Log stoves, plus CH, make house suitable for all year self catering.
