As we go up the hill the ground is becoming more and more attractive culminating with a fantastic view. Ground floorWe find impressive views to the west overlooking the settlement of Punta Brava that are even better to the east, over the sea It is primarily a bedroom floor. and the distant coast of Sant Feliu.

The master suite is located in the “forward corner” with magnificent views and large terrace. Oriented to the east and adjacent to the master suite, are the children rooms with a playroom. In addition to the internal connection the eastern bedrooms can be accessed independently by the longitudinal belvedere terrace. On this floor there are also a TV room and home cinema, and another living room on the master suite that can be used as a games room, pool, music room, library, etc. It all depends on the family composition and the hobbies. First floor This is where the noblest rooms of the house are located (the living room, dining room, porches, solarium, and pool). The living looks at both views, east and west, and is in the “forward corner “of the construction.

From the swimming pool a waterfall runs through the courtyard to reach the terrace underneath where a staircase can communi- cate directly the pool area with the bedrooms, without going into the living room.
