The courtyard has soft blue walls, oversized Moroccan floor lamps, and a glass ceiling panel, through which light streams into the room. The Andaluz floor tiles perfectly complement the walls and furniture.
The Andalusian country-style kitchen across the hallway is a chef’s dream, with granite worktops, a large American fridge, an oven and induction hob by Siemens, and a professional coffee maker.
On the exterior dining terrace is an Argentine grill and wood-burning oven for pizzas, tandooris or slow-roasted meats. The kitchen also has a large island with stools, ideal for informal dining, breakfast or an aperitif before dinner; it also works well as a children’s table.
Your housekeeper can prepare and serve a daily continental breakfast, including farm-fresh eggs; she can also cook typical Andalusian cuisine for other meals, upon request
