The large traditional entrance doors lead you into a beautiful large dining hall with marbled Porcelanosa tiled floor.

The generously wide staircase with antique balustrade leads you up to the next floor. Evening meals are wonderful with the large doors open, framing a fantastic view across to the mountains bathed in sunset colours.
