The owners love to cook for themselves and for their guests therefore the house was conceived as open habitable spaces.

The social area completely integrates its diverse uses (living/dining/kitchen/terrace) and also integrates itself with the exterior.

The master bedroom, with a wonderful sea view, has an en-suite bathroom.

The materials chosen have a rustic quality (wood, stone, brown-grey natural colours) in order to reinforce the relationship between users and nature.
