Villa Cactus includes a new ground floor house with basement, a caved-in guest house with an inner loft and two reconstructed cells built before 1955. The main house includes all common areas – living room, kitchen, dining room, two bedrooms with private bathroom and a home cinema area in the basement. The guest house includes a small living room, kitchen, a bathroom and bedroom on the loft, while the two cells have been converted into two small guest houses with bathroom and external kitchen. It can accommodate a total of ten people.  Key feature of this project is the transformation of the old threshing floor into a central circular lounge space – a meeting point for all guests – from where one can watch the most impressive sunrise than from anywhere else on the island.
