The Mediterranean Village
Room category: Single room, 20m2
In 2019, a separate building was converted into two villas, each with 9 ensuite bedrooms, a formal sitting room, and a lounge and dining room, as well as a kitchen and laundry that the residents are encouraged to use for their own needs. The décor is reminiscent of the 1950s with the benefits of current finishes, products and technology, with both villas opening onto a common terrace that has been influenced by the villages of the Mediterranean. The villas look like home, with artefacts, furniture and patterns, that encourage familiarity, comfort and security for our residents.
