Non-toxic colouring materials have been used.

Sitting rooms are furnished with a sofa bed of ample dimensions (the mattress is 160 cm wide and 15 cm deep) to ensure comfort for every guest. Bedrooms have been furnished with either a double bed or separate single beds which can be fitted together. The beds are 200cm long, and have a wooden slatted frame and orthopaedic mattresses. Bathrooms have either a large shower area or a bath.
There is also a large swimming pool within the complex which has been built in an olive grove overlooking the panoramic view. The pool, which measures 18 metres x 9 metres and in depth ranges from 115 cm to 200 cm, has steps with hydromassage and countercurrent swimming.
