The house is surrounded by a completely-enclosed, lush, well-kept park on hilly ground, distributed over two terraces with the lower one occupied by the swimming pool area and reached down a flight of steps. Mainly lawn, the garden is an explosion of the colours of Mediterranean vegetation, blending in with the surrounding countryside, and is dotted with fruit trees, cypresses, olive trees and bushes of herbs. The vine-covered portico, outside the French windows of the living area, is furnished for outdoor dining. The 4-car parking area is located in a private space in front of the entrance gate to the property.

About 20 m from the house, it can be reached in just a few steps from the portico and then down a flight of steps.

On one side is a cold-water shower and a stone structure with barbecue and wood oven. The pool has chlorine purification and can also be used at night thanks to both internal and external lighting.
