Built with traditional materials of the area, half of the house is also half hidden within the hill on which it stands.
As a result, the building appears much smaller from the outside than it really is. The house has a floor L-shaped. A wing is under a gabled roof, where are the living room and dining room and open kitchen. The living room opens with large windows facing south to a spectacular porch and pool with panoramic views exception.
