It is the oldest part and centuries ago it used to be a watchtower, the remaining parts of the house are subsequently added. The original builders choose a site on top of massive rocks which are still visible in various parts of the building and form interesting details. The roof has been completely renovated, the floors, walls, windows, doors, bathrooms and kitchen are still to be finished and added. The lay-out can, if desired, be changed, as well as the staircases between the various floors.

The first floor can accommodate two bedrooms with a shared bathroom located in the middle, and in the top of the tower is a division already made for a bedroom with en-suite bathroom.

After that there is sufficient space to allow room for the kitchen on this level together with a second living room, or to realize.
