About the villa

A private walkway separates the real world from this beautifully converted 13th century watch tower, taking guests from the coastal hillside grounds, up a flight of stone steps and into the splendid main room. Air-conditioned and elegantly furnished in white, greys and gold, this very chic circular room is dominated by an iron-framed, king size four-poster bed, complemented by a big sofa and armchair, a fireplace, and a window seat in the thick fortress wall to look out over the sea. From here, stairs lead down to a spacious shower room, and up to an open roof terrace.A second stone paved terrace has breathtaking views, sun loungers, garden planting and a dining pergola, and links the tower to its colourful annexe, which houses a kitchenette, shower room, and an attractive sitting room, furnished with a sofa bed and little breakfast table. There is a swimming pool within the grounds of the small estate, which Il Faro shares with three sister-villas, and a semi-private beach is reached via a stepped pathway. Local shops and restaurants are about 300metres away.
