casa Lavanda (Lavender in Spanish) - is a large and spacious, traditional, Castillion-style villa with south facing orientation and lovely open valley views within the 'Valle del Portet' (El Portet valley), just off the 'Cami de la Viuda' road that runs down to the sea. Set within a larger than average plot of 1750 m2, with lovely mature trees, and within a desirable residential area, the villa is close to the lovely, family-friendly, gently-shelving, sandy beach of 'El Portet' (within an easy 15-20 minute walk), where you will find some bars and restaurants.
Situated at the end of a cul-de-sac, with similarly large and exclusive villa, double metal gates allow you entrance to a drive to car parking for several cars.
A slight ramp brings you to the pool terrace and entrance to the villas.
This makes it suitable for wheelchair users but there are two steps upto the ground floor accommodation, and a further 1-2 steps down to some of the bedrooms.
Through patio doors you enter:-

Returning to the living room, a hallway leads to the bedrooms. The first bedroom has a single bed, the second is larger and has a single bed, with a slide-out further single bed (ideal as a children's bedroom), and a bedroom with a king-size bed.
