Boring bits about the the house ....

Above left is an incomplete view of the terrace - there were a table and four chairs behind me when I took the photo. Whenever possible (which is most days) we eat here enjoying a cool breakfastin the morning and fabulous sunset views in the evening. To the right (above) and to the left are two views of the the downstairs room. One looks towards the stairs and the other towards the kitchen area. The kitchen has a hob with four gas rings, a toaster and a microwave. There is also all the cultlery, plates, etc that you need. Set up for two, the table can be moved into the kitchen so you can enjoy the view when you eat. Don't worry if it's raining (which isn't often) as the table opens out to seat four people. In the 'living area' there's a large coffee table (with masses of information on the area stored on its lower shelf) and a small stereo system. There are a dozen or so CDs (inc. one of Spanish birdsong!), but fortunately the stereo plays recordable CDs. A shelf on the stairwell houses field guides to birds, plants, butterflies and mammals plus various 'Where to watch ...' guides.

First left is the main bedroom which has a double bed - despite the angle it's a good sized room with a chest of draws, a wardrobe and a large armchair.

Second left is the twin bedded room which also has a wardrobe. Both rooms share the panoramic view with the terrace although views of Lesser Kestrel are better from the main bedroom!
The bathroom and a large corridor is also on this floor. The former has all the usual utilities (inc. a full sized bath) whilst the corridor has room for a couple of chairs - often a pleasantly cool place to sit on a hot day.
