This modern villa is located in Selca, a village mile away from the center on the elevated solitude in the midst of greenery and rocks. The bushes of rosemary planted next to the pool without chlorine gives it a nice smell. The combination of stone and glass unites the modern and the traditional, and the two „towers“connected to a covered outdoor walkway give her impression of the castle.
Silence gives it the title of an ideal place for rest and simplicity describes its interior: living room adds to the kitchen, and both sides of the room have separate exit to the terrace with swimming pool that offers a magnificent view of the surroundings. This outdoor living room can be reached directly by special staircase.
The rooms are a little warmer decorated with antique wooden furniture, and spacious bathrooms have a shower glass partition.
Throughout the house, the walls are decorated with pictures of Dutch kings, old maps, ancient gods and philosophers. Thanks to the large glass sliding walls and position of the house, the sun shines constantly.

You can meet the pastoral way of life in the surrounding villages whose idyllic spirit modern times failed to disrupt.
This modern villa in a traditional setting offers you a lifestyle of modern times in touch with nature and the old days. Relaxation guaranteed!
