With a Tuscan influence on our design concept, courtyards have been created to capture the sun. There are elegant water features throughout, with gardens planted to maximise winter sun and summer shade. Gardens have been beautifully established with vine covered pergolas, a variety of citrus trees, rosemary borders and much more. Quiet sitting areas are numerous, for reflection, reading or sharing with family and friends. A glass of wine or a barista made coffee and cake can be enjoyed in our alfresco café / bar courtyard.

The majority of individual rooms have private access to garden or courtyards.

There are a number of walkways providing access to the courtyards and gardens. For residents who enjoy gardening, there are raised garden beds for growing vegetables and flowers in sunny locations.
