Main rooms are a happy marriage of seaside colours – squashy sofas rub shoulders with pieces of pure gothic carving – and a curving glass tower floods the house with light.

Walls are adorned with local art – much of it Ciro’s own – and this gracious old house gives itself over effortlessly to seaside living.

The walled garden continues the theme….

alive with terracotta pots and palm trees…

where a shady corner for afternoon lazing become a romantic backdrop for an evening cocktail.

See what they’ve said….
