                              We bought the property 25 years ago with the dream to turn it back to its ancient splendor, keeping its atmosphere and respecting its ancient stones . We fell in love with the incredible site, the panorama, the quietness and its simple elegance. The villa is now composed of four apartments and we live permanently in one of them . It has been a great challenge that lasted a decade, and has given us huge satisfaction .
