Meanwhile, the second bedroom opens onto the villa’s courtyard garden, and the third offers you a chance to witness the goings-on along Lighthouse Street.
Though the airy living room and other social hubs within the villa beckon, it is the verandahs and lush gardens that are bound to keep you captive.

But with the cook at your service (extra charge), and atmospheric eateries and cafes at your doorstep, why bother.
