The Villa stands in a beautiful matured garden with automatic watering. There are shrubs, roses, fruit trees, apricots, cherries, plums, and vines with red & white grapes. There is also a Mediterranean garden with semi-tropical plants. An antique vineyard pump stands on a small paved area with an electric power point for a fountain.

There is a large pan-tiled lean-to car port to the side of the villa to give essential shade for your car in the summer months. This could easily be converted into a garage and a garage door is already available for this.
