One thing that pops out when you look at this building are the irregular walls. They follow the contour of the hill and are made up of local stones assembled with traditional building techniques.
The walls are closed by glass partitions which allow the guest to enjoy the beautiful views this site provides. Outside of the hotel lay lands of greenery filled with olive trees, some of which are around 5 centuries old. In fact, these olive trees have played a huge role on the concept of this hotel.
