Budding tennis champs can hone their skills on the outdoor tennis court, whilst little ones will enjoy working up an appetite on the trampoline before being reluctantly summoned for dinner. Adjacent to the house next to the pool is an under cover reclining area offering a slice of the Mediterranean- a stylish al fresco space for enjoying an evening tipple as the sun sets over the trees.
